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

BWIA International Airways logo

BWIA started operations as British West Indian Airways in 1940 with Lockheed Lodestar airplanes. In 1947, BWIA was taken over by BSAA - British South American Airways, after a few months operating as British International Air Lines the BWIA name was restored in 1948 for operating routes among the Caribbean Islands using Vickers Viking airliners. In 1949, BSAA merged with BOAC and BWIA became a subsidiary of BOAC. Vickers Viscount were introduced in 1955. For BWIA the jet age began in 1964 with the introduction of new Boeing 707 jetliners. BWIA became BWIA International Airways in 1980 after a merger with Trinidad and Tobago Air Services (which had been formed by the government in June 1974), becoming the national airline. BWIA aircraft livery had the 'Trinidad and Tobago Airways' adjacent to the BWIA International after the merger. The same year also saw the Boeing 707 replaced on the London service with long range Lockheed L-1011-500 TriStar wide body jetliners. In 1986, BWIA bought its first McDonnell Douglas MD-83. By 1994, the airline ordered Airbus A321 and Airbus A340 jets. In 1999, BWIA Internantional Airways changed to BWIA West Indies Airways and its livery to a new Caribbean green and blue color scheme with its famous steelpan trademark, the national musical instrument of its home base.
