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

Tupolev Tu-95 seen in The Hunt for Red October.

The Tupolev Tu-95 (NATO reporting name: Bear) is a large, four-engine turboprop-powered strategic bomber and missile platform. First flown in 1952, the Tu-95 entered service with the former Soviet Union in 1956 and is expected to serve the Russian Air Force until at least 2040. A naval development of the bomber is designated Tu-142 (on the ground, the main difference are the main undercarriage bogies : four wheels for he Tu-95 and six for the Tu-142). Both aircraft has four Kuznetsov NK-12 engines, each driving contra-rotating propellers. Some experimental aircraft were designed for theoretically higher speeds, but none attained or registered them. As of 2019, it remains the only turboprop-powered strategic bomber in operational use.
An airliner variant Tu-114 holds the record as the world's fastest propeller-driven aircraft. For Tupolev Tu-114 and its derivative the airborne early warning and control aircraft Tu-126, please use the dedicated category.

This page lists all films that feature a variation of the Tupolev Tu-95 and Tu-142.
