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

Bertin Aérotrain 01

This trip is starting with the first experimental Aérotrain, a vehicle on air cushion designed by the company founded by Jean Bertin. It was used only on the experimental and dedicated 6,7 kilometers long inverted "T" concrete monorail built between Limours et Gometz-le-Châtel, 30 km south west of Paris (France). The next ones were have a jet powerplan (Aérotrain 02) or a turboshaft powering a ducted propeller (Aérotrain I80) later upgraded into I80HV with a Pratt & Whitney JT8D turbofan. Those ones were tested on an another experimental monorail near Orleans (France).
