Kampfgeschwader Lützow

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 (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

Kampfgeschwader Lützow movie poster.

Movie (1941)
Also known as: Battle Squadron Lützow

Christian Kayßler (Oberst Mithoff)
Heinz Welzel (Obergefreiter Fritz Paulsen)
Hermann Braun (Obergefreiter Robert Eckhard)
Hannes Keppler (Unteroffizier Guggemos)

German propaganda film, telling a story of bomber crews, taking part in invasion on Poland and attacks on the British shipping. One of the crew, forced to bail out will be save by a Heinkel 115.

Heinkel He 111 H

Seen throughout the whole movie.

During the air battle, the left Jumo 211F is hit, starts smoking and then stopped, the propellers feathered. More actions display all the stations.

Heinkel He 111 B

Avia B-534

Probably the only movie shot featuring this czech fighter. Acting under the polish colors to simulate a PZL (monoplane !) fighter.
Same action reused in other movies at IMPDb: Frequently Seen Aircraft.

PZL 37B Łoś

On the ground, the bombing has destroyed the base. Several aircrafts are burning. Through the smoke, the shape of some polish bomber PZL 37B are visible.
(probably) Another unique shot among the film industry story.

Curtiss H-75 Hawk

France and Norge have had this Curtiss P-36 variant in their Air Force inventory and some dozens fall in the german hands at the armistice. One of them is used to act as a british Curtiss Mohawk (despite it was only used for advanced training by the S.A.A.F. or fighter on the CBI theater but never on the European theater).
