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

Tupolev ANT-9 seen in Wings of Russia (page 2).

The Tupolev ANT-9 was a Soviet transport aircraft designed at the end of the 1920's and which made its first flight on May 1931. Intended for nine passengers, a hundred of this high-wing monoplane was built in several layouts : first airframes were powered by three radials of different manufacturers (Mikulin, Wright or Gnome-Rhône) or two V-12 liquid-cooled piston engines (this gave the Tupolev PS-9 variant). The aircraft performed well for over a decade, being pressed into the Air Force in 1941 as transport or staff aircraft but as an ambulance too. After 1943, their number decreased but the very last ones soldiered on until 1945. In the beginning of its career, the aircraft performed several flights highly publicised or for propaganda goals. One PS-9 was even disguised in a Krokodil's shape for use by the Propaganda Squadron, shadowing the satirical magazine of this name.

This page lists all films that feature the Tupolev ANT-9 / PS-9.
