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

Thunderbird 6 movie poster.

Movie (1968)

Joan Hughes (uncredited; pilot of the real Thunderbird 6)

(Synopsis needed)

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.

de Havilland DH82A Tiger Moth

Reg. G-ANFM, a de Havilland DH82A Tiger Moth built in 1941 by Morris Motors Ltd, c/n 83604.
Same aircraft in other movies at IMPDb: Frequently Seen Aircraft.
Christened Thunderbird 6, she's appearing only in this work.
This movie is melting :

  • the real aircraft (stunt scenes and so handled by Joan Hughes, a former World War II ferry pilot);

  • a puppet-size version used in the close-ups;
  • a radio-controlled model seen landing over the Motorway;
The radio-controlled model.
  • a miniature version on the roof of Skyship One (a flying pontoon).
