Assignment – Paris!

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

Assignment – Paris! movie poster for French theater.

Movie (1952)
French title : Aveux spontanés
Italian title : Destinazione Budapest

Dana Andrews (Jimmy Race)
Märta Torén (Jeanne Moray)
George Sanders (Nicholas Strang)
Audrey Totter (Sandy Tate)

(Synopsis needed)

SNCASE SE.161/P7 Languedoc

Jeanne Moray is landing at Paris, coming from New York.
Languedoc were used mainly for middle haul flights, mainly with North Africa and Central Europa. But the type never crossed the North Atlantic Ocean.
Reg. F-BCUB SNCASE SE.161 Languedoc c/n 28 (former c/n 29) of Air France (more details on the discussion tab).
Seen here landing with the far right propeller feathered.

But when the aircraft is taxiing, the four engines are running. Probably another airframe (which one ?).

Douglas DC-4-1009

Reg.F-BBDD Douglas DC-4-1009 c/n 42936 Ciel de Bourgogne of Air France.
Same aircraft in other movies at IMPDb: Frequently Seen Aircraft.
The type was really transoceanic. A little bit surprising that the director (or the editor) show us this aircraft with a tricycle landing gear just after the landing of the tail seater Languedoc.
