Dear Friends:

A few short years ago we created this message box on our home page, asking for your help to keep this site up and running. In that time, many of you have generously donated to our PayPal account and we are forever grateful. With your help, we've been able to make the necessary upgrades to our server to keep the site running more smoothly than ever!

The meager ad revenue generated by this site isn't sufficient to cover the annual cost of running the server, and we who manage it have never made money from it.

In an effort to continue serving the needs of aviation enthusiasts around the world, we continue to ask for donations to keep this site up and running. If you're still enjoying this website and would like to help us continue being the BEST site on the Internet for your aviation screenshot needs, please consider donating.

Thank you,

Goodfellas movie poster.

Movie (1990)

Ray Liotta (Henry Hill)
Robert De Niro (Jimmy Conway)
Joe Pesci (Tommy DeVito)
Lorraine Bracco (Karen Hill)
Paul Sorvino (Paulie Cicero)

Henry Hill and his friends work their way up through the mob hierarchy.

Boeing 747-357

As the film jumps ahead from Henry's childhood to his adulthood, we see these jumbo jets fly over and a shot of an airport with a caption reading "Idlewild Airport 1963" (so the 747s are an anachronism since they didn't enter service until the 70s). In the voiceover Henry tells us about how he used to steal cargo from the airport.

Operated by Swissair.

Boeing 747-4B5F

Boeing 747-4B5F of Korean Air Cargo.

Douglas DC-8

Idlewild Airport (nowadays John F. Kennedy International Airport). McDonnell Douglas DC-10 taking off in the background.
Both aircraft are anachronistic for this scene to a degree; Evergreen was founded in 1975, and the DC-10's first flight was in 1970.

Convair C-131 Samaritan

In fake Air France livery. Air France never operated any member the Convair 240 family. Only appears as a background object. Nose distinguishes it as a former military version.

Grumman F6F Hellcat & Grumman F4F Wildcat

Aérospatiale AS355E TwinStar

In the final act of the film, as he drives around in his Cadillac, Henry keeps noticing this helicopter above him.
Registration N5776D, c/n 5030. Same aircraft in other works at IMPDb: Frequently Seen Aircraft (Rotary-Wing).
