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

CAAC logo.

CAAC, acronym of Civil Aviation Administration of China, began operating scheduled domestic flights to cities in China in 1949. In 1962, CAAC began operating international services, initially to other countries in the Communist bloc such as the Soviet Union, Mongolia, North Korea, Burma, Bangladesh, North Vietnam, and Cambodia. By the mid-1980s, CAAC had long-haul service to the United States, Europe, the Middle East, and Australia, mainly using American Boeing aircraft, while continuing to use Soviet aircraft on routes to Eastern Europe. The Boeing customer code for CAAC was J6, which was inherited by Air China until 1999. In 1987, CAAC's airline operations split into 6 separate airlines each named after the geographic region of the location of their headquarters and main operation areas:

Air China which inherited the IATA and ICAO code of the original CAAC.
China Southwest Airlines which merged with Air China in 2002, originally based in Chengdu.
China Eastern Airlines, based in Shanghai.
China Northwest Airlines which merged with China Eastern Airlines in 2002, originally based in Xi'an.
China Southern Airlines, based in Guangzhou.
China Northern Airlines which merged with China Southern Airlines in 2003, originally based in Shenyang.

CAAC used the IATA code CA on international flights only; domestic flights were not prefixed with the airline code. CAAC aircraft livery featured Chinese national flag on the vertical stabilizer, with blue stripes and Chinese version of CAAC logo (autographed by Zhou Enlai) on a white fuselage.

This page lists all films, TV series, and video games that feature aircraft of CAAC.
