Mission: Impossible

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

Mission: Impossible theatrical movie poster.

Movie (1996)

Tom Cruise (Ethan Hunt)
Jon Voight (Jim Phelps)
Emmanuelle Béart (Claire Phelps)
Henry Czerny (Eugene Kittridge)
Jean Reno (Franz Krieger)
Ving Rhames (Luther Stickell)

Ethan Hunt is framed as a mole when his team - including his superior, Jim Phelps - is killed in Prague. Along with Jim's widow, Claire, Ethan sets out to establish the identity of the people who set him up.

Also from this series:

Mission: Impossible II
Mission: Impossible III
Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol
Mission: Impossible 5
Mission: Impossible – Fallout

Aérospatiale AS355 Ecureuil 2

Kittridge and his assistant Barnes arrive in this helicopter.


Later, an AS355 is erroneously depicted in a news report about the MD 520N's crash. Possibly this is an in-story mistake made by the news (and thus deliberate by the filmmakers).


McDonnell Douglas Helicopter MD-520N NOTAR

This helicopter, flown by Krieger, is used extensively in the film's climax wherein it follows a train into a tunnel. It is destroyed when Ethan sticks exploding chewing gum on the windscreen.
