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

Fairey Battle

Quickly, the Heinkell is acted by British types. First, just this shot of a Fairey Battle.

Bristol 142 Blenheim Mk.I

But most of the time, it's a Bristol 142 Blenheim Mk.I.

Close ups are most of the time from other types. The cockpit view is set inside an Avro Anson.

Handley Page HP.52 Hampden

Bomb bay : the Heinkel He 111 got two, side by side with bombs loaden vertically (look at Wielka Droga). This single one with bombs horizontally is from a british bomber but not a Blenheim which got two. Probably an Handley Page HP.52 Hampden.

Unidentified Aircraft

A British type with open cockpit. Not Fairey Swordfish. Hawker Hart ?

Supermarine Spitfire Mk II

Defending fighters are these Spitfires seen at takeoff.
WZ is the squadron code for No. 19 Squadron RAF between October 1938 and September 1939. Actually, the fighting saw Spitfires of No. 603 Squadron RAF (code XT)... and occured in October 1939.

Again once the victory is full.
