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

A4/SWD/SOUTHERN WINDS.

Southern Winds Airlines (or SW Airlines) was an Argentine commercial air carrier that operated from 1996 until 2005. Initially a domestic carrier, Southern Winds began offering connections to international flights in 1997.Southern Winds' fleet was composed initially by Bombardier CRJ100, De Havilland Canada DHC-8 and later Boeing 737, Boeing 747, and Boeing 767 passenger planes. Though the company was founded as a passenger carrier, cargo transport services under the brand SW Cargo began in 2000. In 2003 an alliance was struck between Southern Winds and the Argentine-state owned Líneas Aéreas Federales Sociedad Anónima (LAFSA) that involved utilization by LAFSA of Southern Winds' flight infrastructure. A scandal with 60 kilograms (130 lb) of cocaine found aboard an arriving Southern Winds fligh cost the airline its government subsidy, and ultimately resulted in the carrier's collapse.The last Southern Winds flight operated on December 5, 2005, although proposals for the airline's revival continued to surface in 2006.

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