Talk:L'assaut (2010)

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

Nearly half the action takes place inside the Airbus A300. The movie's crew needed a fuselage free of any commercial pressure but as some A300 are now old enough to be scrapped, the team search for a lost airframe.
They found an ex-Air Togo A300 B4 abandoned at Bordeaux. Only the upper fuselage (passenger deck) of the aircraft was kept and put on a lorry for a travel to Melun-Villaroche airfield (40 km south-east of Paris) 700 kilometers north.
This aircraft built in 1979 is the 69th airframe, ex F-WZEB 5T-CTI N471AS 5V-TTT G-BYYS RP-C3002 (Philippine Airlines) and eventually F-GVVV when her operator's bankruptcy occurred in 2005. As in March 2017, this fuselage is still there having been used for some other filming.
