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

Movie (1994)

Wesley Snipes (Pete Nessip)
Gary Busey (Ty Moncrief)
Yancy Butler (Jessie Crossman)
Michael Jeter (Earl Leedy)

When his brother is killed whilst escorting a cyber-criminal on a transport flight, Pete Nessip sets out to prove that those responsible are still alive and to stop them completing their master plan. To do this he must team up with a group of skydivers and get on the inside.

Boeing 747-146

Seen transporting Leedy and subsequent 'jailbreak'. Shown in fictional PAC Atlantic Air livery, registration N704CK, c/n 20528/191 of American International Airways (precursor to Kalitta Air). Broken up at Opa-Locka Executive Airport in Florida sometime during or after 2006.
Kalitta later operated two more 747s with the N704CK registration that this aircraft should not be confused with; a 747-209F/SCD with c/n 22299/462 that broke up on take-off at Brussels in 2008, and a 747-246F/SCD with c/n 23391/654 that is now in storage.

Reg. N704CK Boeing 747-146 of American International Airways.

A hole can be seen in the rear port fuselage.

Reg. N54743. Registration info says its a 172P but it doesn't look like one and the current (and only) N54743 looks nothing like it at airliners.net

Douglas DC-3

N129H is used by Moncrief's crew for their skydives. Another DC-3 is also used by another team, but in military livery.
