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

Movie (1970)
English title: The Red Circle / Le Cercle Rouge

Alain Delon (Corey)
Bourvil (Le Commissaire Mattei)
Gian Maria Volonté (Vogel)
Yves Montand (Jansen)

Corey is a cool, aristocratic thief, released from prison on the same day that Vogel, a murderer, escapes from the custody of the patient Mattei, a cat-loving police superintendent.

Sud Aviation SA 316B Alouette III

Army Alouette III hunting Vogel (Gian Maria Volonte) in country side. This helicopter was built by Sud Aviation (at the time of the movie, Aérospatiale did not exist). F-BRAQ was an Héli-Union civil aircraft, probably rent for movie, with fake cocarde of French air force. No more on the French registry since sold to export in 1982.
Also seen in other movies at IMPDb: Frequently Seen Aircraft.
