Le Paradis des pilotes perdus

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

Le Paradis des pilotes perdus movie poster.

Movie (1949)
USA title : The Hell of Lost Pilots

Henri Vidal (Capitaine Bertrand)
Michel Auclair (Léonard François)
Andrée Debar (Mme Clément)
Robert Dalban (Dumont, radio)

A Junkers Ju 52 must landed nowhere in the middle of the Sahara. The radio is out and the twelve passengers must wait the rescue team ... or fear their destiny. Their real personalities are emerging as the time flies. Fifteen years before the Flight of the Phoenix, the story is already fascinating with a real set : in 1949, such flights occured two times a week and took several days to reach Dakar.

A.A.C. 1 Toucan

Even if an advertising in 1949 used the 'Junkers 52' name, it was really a post war production with the changes made by the French design bureau Ateliers Aéronautiques de Colombes (thick tyres for example).
A.A.C. 1 Toucan s/n 125.
