Storm Catcher

Welcome to IMPDb!
Dedicated to identifying aircraft throughout Movies, Television, and Video Games!


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

Movie (1999)

Dolph Lundgren (Major Jack Holloway)
Mystro Clark (Captain 'Sparks' Johnson)
Jon Pennell (Captain Lucas)
Robert Miano (General William Jacobs)

A renegade general want to bomb Washington with a new revolutionary bomber. His plan relies on a pilot and the theft of the Phoenix III.

Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk

First, the plane in itself, as seen in the beginning during trials. From a U.S. Air Force/DoD Promotional Film.
Same aircraft in other movies at IMPDb: Frequently Seen Aircraft.

There's also some classic flight scenes.

Now, the Nighthawk playing the Phoenix III, a two seat bomber. The crew is set at 90°.
Same aircraft in other movies at IMPDb: Frequently Seen Aircraft.

The pilot dislikes that the bomber puts a gun under his chin; so he ejects his 'passenger'
Despite the window has exploded when the seat was ejected, a new window slides to close the cockpit!

Bell UH-1 Iroquois


Fairchild-Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II & Lockheed Martin F-16 Fighting Falcon

McDonnell Douglas F-4F Phantom II


Northrop F-5E

Same apron scene in other movies at IMPDb: Frequently Seen Aircraft : take already used in Red Flag : The Ultimate Game.


F-5E or perhaps F.

Probably a F-5F tailed by the Tomcat.

Grumman F-14 Tomcat

Despite on an interception mission, the Tomcats have their hook extended and fly with minimum speed.

McDonnell Douglas F/A-18C Hornet


Lockheed S-3 Viking


Aeronca LC

Registration N17442, serial 2056.

Registration N17442.

Mooney M18 Mite

Registration N124C, serial 204.

Aircraft hanging to the ceiling with code shinning a little by oblique light; once again, thanks to N124C registration!

Cessna 172C Skyhawk

Registration N8306X, serial 48806.

Major Holloway tries to stop the coup. But he needs a plane and stole this 172C of 1961, registered N8306X

Cessna 172N Skyhawk

Registration N4727D, serial 72341.

Then he takes off with N4727D, A 172N built in 1979.

Cessna A150M

Registration N9828J, serial 0637. Same aircraft in other works at IMPDb: Frequently Seen Aircraft (Civil Fixed-Wing).

... and then flies with this N9828J, a 150 model of 1975.

Beechcraft 65 Queen Air & Piper PA-31

Queen air on the left, in the background. PA-31 in the foreground.

North American TB-25N Mitchell

We guess "Heavenly Body" pin-up, so it's the TB-25N Mitchell (N8195H / 44-30748)


North American T-28C Trojan


Sud Aviation SE 210 Caravelle III


Various Aircraft

Quite a few aircraft on board and one landing on USS Enterprise (CV-65).
