Le grand Meaulnes

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

(Synopsis needed)

Various Model

The novel of Alain-Fournier ends in 1913 but the movie reaches the first fightings of the Great War (World War One). Another major change is about Franz. Aviation enthusiast and pilot on the screen, he's just a tramp into the book until he meets again Valentine.
First, in 1910, Frantz is just building models. We guess a Wright Brothers and perhaps a glider of Otto Lilienthal.

Years later, Frantz is now a pilot, breaking world flight altitude record.

Blériot XI

Reg. F-AZBA Channel crossing type with Anzani-like three cylinder engine. Tail seen on the foreground of the Morane-Saulnier H (see top). This aircraft is the very last Type XI built ... in 1934 with a Potez Anzani 3B engine (gift of the Blériot workers to the old Pioneer).
