Dear Friends:

Two 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.

Animation Movie (1989)
Japanese title: 伊勢湾台風物語

Mami Koyama (Hikari Tsushima)
Keiko Toda (Toshio Nishizawa)

On September 26, 1959, Typhoon Vera (aka Isewan Typhoon) strikes central Japan, devastating large swaths of the Nagoya area. This movie follows the story of people who were caught up in the worst typhoon disasters in modern Japan.

Note: This is an animated film. The aircraft shown in it are therefore not actual aircraft, however, where a reasonable depiction of an actual aircraft has been created, it has been identified as best as possible.

Boeing WB-29A

Operated by the US Air Force to conduct weather reconnaissance missions on Typhoon Vera.

Vertol V-44A

Reg. 50002 / JG-0002 (c/n 42-20) of the Japan Ground Self Defense Force. This aircraft was used in real life for search and rescue missions in the wake of Typhoon Vera, and is currently on static display at the Tokorozawa Aviation Museum.

Unidentified High-Wing Taildragger

Seen flying over the affected area after Vera moves past Nagoya. Likely a Cessna but hard to tell the exact model from this angle.
