Active Stealth

Welcome to IMPDb!
Dedicated to identifying aircraft throughout Movies, Television, and Video Games!


Dear Friends:

As many of you have noticed, The Internet Movie Plan Database ( has recently had a hard time keeping up with the growing demands of our users. In 2009 when a couple of us got together to begin putting the website together, space was never an issue. In fact, it has steadily grown with virtually no problems throughout the years.

In about the middle of 2016 we began to run into server space issues. We have since made upgrades (moving to a VPS, buying more space, etc), but the site continues to outgrow the upgrades. The meager ad revenue generated by the site isn't sufficient to cover the annual cost of running the server. We who manage the site have never made money from it, it has only ever earned enough money to cover actual server costs.

In an effort to continue serving the needs of aviation enthusiasts around the world, we are asking for donations to keep this site up and running consistently like it did when it was a smaller, newer site. If you've enjoyed this website and would like to see it continue being the site you go to for your aviation screenshot needs, please consider donating.

Oh yeah, new users and edits are now active (hopefully for good) while we're testing new and improved spam/bot protections :)
Thank you,
IMPDb Staff

Active Stealth DVD cover.

Movie (1999)
French title : Les ailes d'acier
Europe title : Shadow Force
Spanish title : Venganza invisible

Tim Abell (Lt. Rab Carter)
Daniel Baldwin (Capt. Murphy)
Juan Carlos Cantú (Col. Juarez)
Ava Fabian (Sgt. Baker)

Capt. Murphy is obsessed by his brothers in arms left prisonners during a mission. This is the start of a new commando action under the cover of Navy aviation as the drug dealers have their own jet fighters ! A storyboard which gives us the chance to see the F-117 being a four seat aircraft, (re)use of shots and air action from Top Gun, Iron Eagle series ... and an handful of new images.

ActStealth F-16B.png


A fictionous name as an aircarft carrier is a CVN (why USS OKLA ? for the battleship USS Oklahoma sunk in Pearl Harbor ? [the only one to ever be named for the 46th state]). On the deck of this unidentified CVN, a E-2 Hawkeye is ready to be launch. Parked around the stern are F-14s and F-18s

How to access to the pilot seat ? not by a ladder and the open canopy, but from behind this single ejection seat !

ActStealth F-117b.png

When the F-117 is taxiing, it's a real aircraft, probably from a U.S. Air Force Promotional Film.

During a dogfight, the F-16 becomes this A-4 the time of a glimpse !

Another continuity error when the F-14 dogfights with a F-5 (footage probably from Top Gun).
