Ironiya sudby, ili S legkim parom!

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

On the last day of the year a 36-year-old, soon to get married Soviet doctor Zhenya Lukashin goes to public bathhouse with his friends, where they heavily drink. They subsequently go to airport, as one of them has to leave for Leningrad. However, due to all of them being drunk, Zhenya accidentally gets sent to Leningrad instead of his friend. He wakes up without realizing he’s now in a different city, and his life is about to take a very unexpected turn.

Tupolev Tu-114

A Tu-114 is seen in front of old Moscow Domodedovo Airport terminal, where Moscow airport scene was filmed. This is a factual mistake, as in Soviet times there were no flights to Leningrad from this airport.

Lukashin en route to Leningrad falls asleep on his fellow passenger (played by director Eldar Ryazanov). This scene was also filmed inside Tu-114.

However, when his flight is shown outside, it's a Tu-134. A scale mockup was used to film the scene.
