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

A Lisunov Li-2P.
The Lisunov Li-2 was a license-built version of the Douglas DC-3. The Soviets purchased 21 DC-3s for operation by Aeroflot before World War II and a production license was awarded to the Soviets on 15 July 1936. The aeronautical engineer Boris Pavlovich Lisunov spent two years with Vladimir Mikhailovich Myasishchev at the Douglas plant to modify U.S. customary units to metric units. Eventually, some more substantial changes were operated like the use of the Russian Shvetsov ASh-62IR engines, a Soviet development of the nine-cylinder Wright R-1820. They could be fully shuttered in order to cope with the extreme temperatures. Another notable change was the move of the passenger door to the right side of the fuselage. After two hundred airframes were built between 1939 and June 1941 at GAZ-84 factory (near Moscow), the production line was transferred at GAZ-33 in Tashkent (SSR of Uzbekistan). Some hundred of them were even armed with a dorsal turret and bomb racks. Production ceased in 1954.

Several thousand Lisunov Li-2s have been built. Only one is still flyable as of 2009.

This page lists all films that feature a variation of the Lisunov Li-2.
