I completed rberent's contribution, with non-HD pics

Note for rberent: when someone says he will add pics, it usually is better to let him do, as it usually means that the captures are already done ;)
In this case it is not a big problem, the few you added helped me, and were better quality than mine.

The Snipe was listed, the other one probably didn't had a good view without another vehicle in front, I'll check that.

And also the planes, that I should have included indeed...

It wasn't that bad. But I was a little disappointed, I was expecting more with such cast.
I found funny how each time when Matt Damon speaks French, people ask him to stop :D (as indeed he is bad at it)

Edit: I put them in his comment above.
