Dear Friends:

As many of you have noticed, The Internet Movie Plan Database (impdb.org) 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

Aeritalia G.222TCM seen in Poèma o kryl’jah.

The Aeritalia G.222 is a medium-sized STOL military transport aircraft which makes its first flight on 18th July 1970. The first production aircraft entered Italian service in April 1978. Five foreign Air Forces ordered it before Libya expressed the need of twenty airframes. This deal was embargoed by the U.S. Government as the G.222's engines were the turboprop General Electric T64. In order to avoid such further event, Alenia (which succeeded to Aeritalia) developped the C-27J powered by the Rolls-Royce Tyne engine and other US supplied equipment were replaced by European equivalents. On the 111 Aeritalia G.222 built, ten were bought by USAF which baptised them C-27A (1990–99). From 1997, the highly redesigned C-27J Spartan is built (nearly 50 airplanes) and is put into service with several Air Forces (including the ANG and USAF !).


This page lists all films that feature the Aeritalia G.222 / C-27A or Alenia C-27J Spartan.
