Talk:Ma vie en l'air

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

Justifications for ID

What justifies the ID of the respective shots as A340-313X and A300? I think the A300 is misidentified and actually a Boeing 777, whilst the A340 cannot be distinguished as that particular model. Bthebest - IMPDb Administrator 12:58, 18 March 2011 (MDT)

You're absolutly right about the 777, I didn't pay enough attention when posting it. It's indeed a 777,either in 228/ER or 328/ER series of Air France. About the Airbus A340, the last picture shows with evidence an Air France aircraft (tail fin), though other pictures aren't so easily identifiables. As Air France, it's either a 311 or 313X series model. 313X having a higher probability than the 311 in AF fleet (about 15 aircrafts of that type versus the 311 (only 3 or 4) Sixcyl 03:38, 19 March 2011 (MDT)

I agree it's a -200. Doesn't appear to be an overwing door. Also, I'm not sure the last picture is a 777 - the engines look a bit small.

Which tail fin are you talking about? The rear view is a 747 and the right one is the 777. I understand your point about the probability but it's still better to be completely right rather than partially wrong. Bthebest - IMPDb Administrator 16:20, 19 March 2011 (MDT)

Have removed the last picture from the A340 section as it doesn't show an A340, and changed the ID to a generic A340 as it unclear which variant it is. Bthebest - IMPDb Administrator 12:13, 19 February 2013 (MST)

UID Aircraft

Erik Brouwer has suggested a Star Airlines A320 for the Unidentified Aircraft. I agree it looks like a Star Airlines livery and interior but the windows look too square to be either an A320 or A330. Any other opinions? Bthebest - IMPDb Administrator 10:44, 5 July 2011 (MDT)

Maybe the first pictures doesn't belong to the same airplane than the 2 others? Sixcyl 14:55, 6 July 2011 (MDT)

You´re absolutely right Sixcyl, Bthebest. Windows are not those from Airbus. Looks more like Boeings. The 2nd picture (with the engine visible) is indeed from Star Airlines A320. I am bit confused with the 3rd because we can clearly se the space between windows which in case of A320 would indicate Owerwing Emergency Exit doors. There should be release handles, exit signs, etc but they are jus missing here.. And at last, this guy is sitting on two different seats. Discontinuity or two different flights? The picture onto engine is not taken from his seat.. Cheers, RenoRacer 23:33, 12 March 2012 (MDT)

According the story, the scene is aboard an A-320. But we know how movie's crews like to shoot something (or a place) which is not what supposed to be in the script... This quizz could be completed with the cockpit views (similator and "real" A320). LVCDC 13 february 2013
