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.

Thank you,
Tobin & Rush

The Blue Max movie poster.

Movie (1966)
Also Known As : Le crépuscule des aigles

Starring:
George Peppard (Lt. Bruno Stachel)
James Mason (General Count von Klugermann)
Ursula Andress (Countess Kaeti von Klugermann)
Jeremy Kemp (Willi von Klugermann)
Karl Michael Vogler (Colonel Otto Heidemann)

A young pilot in the German air force of 1918, disliked as lower-class and unchivalrous, tries ambitiously to earn the medal offered for 20 kills.

Note : Most of the aircraft but the Morane-Saulnier MS.230 will fly again in front of the camera for Von Richthofen and Brown.

De Havilland DH82A Tiger Moth

Anachronistic and unlikely DH-82 Tiger Moth in German and British air forces colours.

Morane-Saulnier MS.230

Presented in the story as an advanced new prototype of german aircraft industry, faster and very maneuverable, it is given to handles of ace Bruno Stachel (G.Peppard). But airplane is not perfectly settled yet, and Bruno Stachel will crash and die in it. Actually, the aircraft is anachronistic for a WWI story, being in fact a 1929 french Morane Saulnier MS.230, a successful training airplane of the 30’s built at around 1100 samples.
