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

Sonda title screen.

TV Show / Documentary (1977-1989)

Starring:
Zdzisław Kamiński (host)
Andrzej Kurek (host)

The most successful scientific program in the history of the Polish TV. It enjoyed unflagging popularity till the last episode, gathering for 12 years huge audience in every age and of both sexes. Responsible for this were mostly the interesting, a bit humorous, formula of the show and strong TV personalities of the two main hosts, who always tried to present the scientific and technical progress in the context of our everyday live improving. Their sudden and tragic death in car accident, during the preparation of the next episode, meant also the end of the program production in 1989.
Except own materials “Sonda” used also a lot of footages from around the world, taken for example from the manufacturers promo videos or documentaries provided by the embassies.
