Here Comes the Navy

Welcome to IMPDb!
Dedicated to identifying aircraft throughout Movies, Television, and Video Games!


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

Another one is guessed behind Chesty (James Cagney) at the end of the movie when he's reading a letter in front of the airship.

Less of ten of this parasite fighter designed for operation with USS Macon and USS Akron (two airships used as flying base / carriers) were built.

Goodyear-Zeppelin ZRS-5 USS Macon

One of the two sister ship built during the 1930's and being the world largest of its kind among helium-filled airships (785 feet / 239 meters). Commissioned on 23 June 1933 and called to active duty in 1934, the USS Macon eventually crashed into the sea on 12 February 1935 in the Monterey Bay during a storm. Only two sailors were lost.
