Sea Hunt

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

TV Series (1958-1961)

Lloyd Bridges (Mike Nelson)

(Synopsis needed)

Season One

Convair F2Y Sea Dart

Ep. 1.01 Sixty Feet Below
On 4 November 1954, Convair YF2Y-1 Sea Dart, BuNo 135762, disintegrated in midair over San Diego Bay killing Charles E. Richbourg.
In this episode, the pilot (Jim Cock) is just prisonner of the sunk aircraft (named XF-190).
The experimental aircraft is played by XF2Y-1 prototype (BuNo 137634) with its original J-34 engines and twin ski (retracted here).

BuNo 137634 Convair XF2Y-1 Sea Dart.
BuNo 137634 Convair XF2Y-1 Sea Dart.

Sea Darts have a twin ski basic configuration but the first protytpe was upgraded at the end of 1954 with new J-46 engines and a large single ski. It's probably this one seen in the landing accident scene.

Close ups on the cockpit doesn't display the Sea Dart's "V" windshield (common with the Convair F-102 or F-106). It's probably a Grumman F9F (Panther or Cougar).
