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

Movie (1970)

Melodrama set around the fictional Lincoln International Airport (Actually Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport (MSP/KMSP)) as it and its staff face various traumas. First of all a snow storm blocks the runways leading to an airliner getting stuck on them. Later on the crew of a Boeing 707 flying from Lincoln to Rome have to deal with a bomber on board and coax the heavily damaged jet back to the airport.

Boeing 707-349C

This jet plays the part of two different 707s. One gets stuck on the runway due to the heavy snow and the other is suffers heavy damage when a bomb is detonated on board leading to a difficult job for Captains Demerest and Harrison who are flying the plane. It wears the made for movie livery of the fictional Trans Global Ailines but in reality it was leased from Flying Tiger Lines. It later saw service with Aer Lingus, British Caledonian and Transbrasil.
