Thirty Years Ago

On 1st September 1983, the drama of KE007. In memory of all the people victims of these fateful circumstances.
Further episodes will follow in the coming days but feel free to complete this wide TV aviation serie as I haven't all of them.
All the 109 episodes (at this date) :
LVCDC 14:30, 2 September 2013 (MDT)

The second upload will be about the other flight with a similar fate : Iran Air 655 (already 25 years !). LVCDC 11:55, 22 September 2013 (MDT)

Is this Episode Online and (un)completed ?

Please, remember that a TV serie is split by seasons but not by episodes (look at TV Series section in : ).
Inside each season, the aircraft types are given once but inside each of them, you can list the different episodes in which the viewer will find them.
The following list is built from the data found on wikipedia on September 2013 ( ) which could be different from your country's broadcasting or the DVD edition. [May 2015 update : the order of the list has been changed on the Wikipedia master reference page].
The Status Column gives how to consider each episode :

  • Empty : for episodes not yet online;
  • C : indicates an episode coming soon;
  • O : for those uncompleted (please, try to list what is missing on the right column):
  • OK : if all is right.

Please, do not change the order even if it's different from an other list (even from a DVD edition) ! Many thanks for your help and contributions.

Should this be renamed "Mayday", as it's the original name of the series and it seems to be policy on the rest of the site that movies and shows should be titled by their original name? Corkeyandpals 22:24, 17 September 2013 (MDT)

Interesting problem ! The serie is canadian and seems baptised with the both names, sold with the one that suits the best depending the nationality of the customer broadcasting network. If you search 'Mayday', the page will be returned as the title is given at the line 'also known as'.
I've mostly worked from the french langage variant which could be slighty different from the british langage one (I'm not sure Gérard Feltzer -despite fully bilingual as a former pilot instructor on Boeings and Airbuses- would appear in the english world). This problem of rework movies/TV series should have a debate on the forum as I've already uploaded pages which refers to such cases : how to consider them ?
Even a movie could have several issues as noted by Puterboy for Lord of the Flies (1963), for example. LVCDC 11:17, 19 September 2013 (MDT)
Maybe we should make a redirect for "Mayday" then? Corkeyandpals 21:38, 19 September 2013 (MDT)
Why not ? But I think we really need a debate on the forum about such question : how to consider variants from countries (or times) regarding the original work ? LVCDC 02:21, 20 September 2013 (MDT)


Any info when we shall recover thumbnails? Sixcyl 14:02, 19 September 2013 (MDT)

I'm not the Administrator ! I think the first problem are the spammers. The thumbnails could be overrun by uploading pictures of the size usually display on the pages : 500 pixel wide. LVCDC 02:24, 20 September 2013 (MDT)

I know you're not admin. But the bug seems still not fixed. Have you got any info? I don't see any on the forum neither.Sixcyl 13:22, 20 September 2013 (MDT)

You're right but I think the forum is the crossroad to express our distress ! Writing this from page to page is like throwing a pebble in the sea ! I will add to the subject on the forum, the list of the movies suffering from this bug (ten by myself) without forgotten the "Frequently Seen Aircraft" page ! LVCDC 09:39, 23 September 2013 (MDT)

I know, that kind of chat should be better on the forum, But each time I post a comment on the forum, it takes "ages" for it to be displayed on !!Sixcyl 14:29, 23 September 2013 (MDT)

I just hope it will take less time than the unsafe state of last year ... LVCDC 05:27, 24 September 2013 (MDT)

Resizing pics

Could you resize your pictures please.Sixcyl 15:21, 30 November 2013 (MST)

I could but I don't want. As you have probably noticed, I do post no more big sized screenshots (and so I've postponed several uploading). I'm focusing on pages with smaller screenshots. No time for a such rework (which need in the future another uploaded for big sized screenshots [in order to help the smallest details to be visible]). I think the problem is on the side of the wiki, not ours.
Well, if you post a movie with a plane of a new category and already seen elsewhere, this means you need to uploaded 3 times (200 px, 350 px and 500 px) instead a single one with automatic resizing. It's enough for me. Sorry ! LVCDC 18:25, 30 November 2013 (MST)
Excuse me to be so rude but each page is really a hard work for me as I never post pictures taken elsewhere. I always fully watched the film (and so I could write a synopsis) and it takes me hours. As I'm working on a big project (nearly 50 hours of watching, hundreds planes ... which makes me hours to code it correctly and probably tenths of new aircraft categories in sight). So posting a second time pictures which will need a third action in the coming weeks/months ... no thank you ! LVCDC 19:05, 30 November 2013 (MST)
Well, would you mind if I resized them? It shouldn't be too difficult, and as soon as the problem is fixed, you can revert the changes if you want. Corkeyandpals 20:00, 30 November 2013 (MST)
It's kind from you. As the link is probably not working, you can hit the original picture through the search field with file:picture's-name. Thanks for your help ! LVCDC 23:31, 30 November 2013 (MST)

As Corkeyandpals, I agree to resized them too. But I can't register the files and work on them, except for the title screenshot which is reachable by the link enlarging picture. Have you got any other way to suggest for recovering your (big size) pictures?Sixcyl 02:57, 1 December 2013 (MST)

Je confirme :prendre le code original de chaque image et y remplacer image par file (on s'arrête sur jpg en virant les crochets). Ce code mis dans SEARCH, faire GO et la page du fichier s'affiche en 800 pixels. Cliquer sur full resolution ... miracle ! Capito ? LVCDC 05:51, 1 December 2013 (MST)

C'est bien ce que je tentais et comme il le fallait!!!.... mais c'était juste le "full resolution" qui manquait dans la méthode! ... OK merci , on va te faire ça "au petits oignons" tu vas voir! Sixcyl 09:02, 1 December 2013 (MST)

Thanks for the job ! Keep me movie's page number #2500 left for a very huge project. That's why I'm often here despite posting few since two weeks. LVCDC 10:46, 1 December 2013 (MST)

DC-6B of American Airlines. The Stratocruiser is from Northwest Airlines, a 377-10-30. The Viscount is a 757 series from TCA, former name à Air Canada.Sixcyl 07:05, 9 November 2014 (MST)

Episode Veracity

saison 12 - Ep 10 : Death of the President

I don't know precisely (and even sometimes not at all) most of each episode's subject. But about Ep. 10/S. 12, I was surprised by some omitted details as I was very interested by the crash in 2010 and have follow the official report.
Probably in order to keep the story easy for the common people, they don't say that the crash occured on the third trial approach. Most surprising, nothing is said about the other polish flight (PLF 031 flight, a Yak 40) which had landed minutes before and which had radioed directly to the presidential aircraft on the unfavorable weather conditions.
LVCDC 09:07, 12 December 2014 (MST)


Ep. 3.10 Helicopter Down

The picture shows a 737-200 Series, not a "modified" 737.Sixcyl 14:59, 19 January 2015 (MST)

Air France didn't use the 767 a long time. These planes came from UTA's subsidiary Aéromaritime fleet when the merge with Air France was done. The AF livery had non usual grey stripe on the fuselage, that we don't see here, and the Logo AIR FRANCE was sharper than on this one. Sixcyl 14:59, 19 January 2015 (MST)

Thanks for your sharp eye ! It was just an hypothesis as I've worked with an old VHS copy of poor quality. I suppose airliners in the background could be identified, at least their company owners on a better screenshot ... LVCDC 10:06, 20 January 2015 (MST)

Relax ! As you probably noticed, since end of March, I'm very busy and work for IMPDB only few minutes a day, instead several hours before. This mean that I need two or three sessions to put online a full work. I know that Dver, otkrytaya v nebo is still "on the workbench" (I need attention to identify the several Tu-144 before uploading them) but usually when I started something, I put an end before starting a new project. Of course, Wings of Russia is a big exception if we consider how rich it is ! LVCDC 05:18, 15 May 2015 (MDT)
At least, Ep. 11.07 is completed. Some captions will be probably upgraded (customer's variant name of 747 for example). LVCDC 08:14, 15 May 2015 (MDT)

Episode 10.6

I've changed DHC-7 into DHC-8 as we guess a twin engine, not a four engine aircraft in the background. Even in full size, I'm afraid it's risky to choose between some operators of the type... LVCDC 06:55, 19 May 2015 (MDT)

Page Title

If we have a policy of naming pages with the original title of the production, shouldn't this be renamed to Mayday? It was originally produced and aired in Canada with this title. Corkeyandpals 16:16, 13 June 2015 (MDT)

Future of this Project (Splitting)

This page is too huge and often failed to upload correctly, so it will be split in the coming weeks into 'Season's page'. LVCDC (talk) 17:27, 25 October 2018 (MDT)

I've already tested out splitting this page up on the backup site (, we could probably copy over those pages and save ourselves a lot of work if you're okay with the format. Corkeyandpals (talk) 01:19, 26 October 2018 (MDT)
I was considering if a page by Season is the right choice or if we should keep the three episodes of Season 6 (with 5 or 7 ?) and the two ones of Season 8 (with 7 or 9 ?) sharing their data with a bigger one ? ... or not ? LVCDC (talk) 13:57, 26 October 2018 (MDT)
Existing data are now split on each Season's page. This Mother Page will be soon modified to link directly each online episode with the right page and place. LVCDC (talk) 16:33, 8 December 2018 (MST)
