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

Eagle Airways Ltd was formed as Eagle Aviation Ltd by a former wartime pilot, Harold Bamberg, on April 1948.The initial fleet comprised two wartime Halifax Mk 8 bombers converted for carrying fruit and vegetables. Both aircraft saw extensive service along with a further two others during the Berlin Airlift. The airline acquired Air Freight Ltd with three more Halifaxes later the same year. Eagle acquired three Avro York aircraft in late 1949, followed by eight others, and used these until early 1955 for both passenger and freight charters. In1953 Eagle Aviation purchased a large fleet of Vickers Vikings from BEA to run schedule services in a new company named Eagle Aiways. Eagle Aviation keeping in charge of all non-scheduled operations, including trooping flights. In 1958, Eagle Airways acquired the first three of an eventual six Douglas DC-6s for long-range charter and scheduled operations. In March 1960, the Cunard Steamship Company bought a 60% shareholding resulting in a change of name to Cunard Eagle Airways. The support from this new shareholder enabled Cunard Eagle to become the first British independent airline to operate pure jet airliners, as a result of a £6 million order for two new Boeing 707 passenger aircraft. The company changed its name to British Eagle International Airlines in 1963.
