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

Goodfellas movie poster.

Henry Hill and his friends work their way up through the mob hierarchy.

In the final act of the film, as he drives around in his Cadillac, Henry keeps noticing this helicopter above him.

Boeing 747-357

As the film jumps ahead from Henry's childhood to his adulthood, we see these jumbo jets fly over and a shot of an airport with a caption reading "Idlewild Airport 1963" (so the 747s are an anachronism since they didn't enter service until the 70s). In the voiceover Henry tells us about how he used to steal cargo from the airport.

Operated by Swissair.

Convair C-131 Samaritan

In fake Air France livery, which wasn't this colour and didn't use these planes either. Only appears as a background object. Nose distinguishes it as a former military version.
