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

The Blue Max movie poster.

Movie (1966)
Also Known As : Le crépuscule des aigles

George Peppard (Lt. Bruno Stachel)
James Mason (General Count von Klugermann)
Ursula Andress (Countess Kaeti von Klugermann)
Jeremy Kemp (Willi von Klugermann)
Karl Michael Vogler (Colonel Otto Heidemann)

A young pilot in the German air force of 1918, disliked as lower-class and unchivalrous, tries ambitiously to earn the medal offered for 20 kills.
Note : Most of the aircraft but the Morane-Saulnier MS.230 will fly again in front of the camera for Von Richthofen and Brown.

De Havilland DH82A Tiger Moth

Anachronistic and unlikely DH-82 Tiger Moth in German and British air forces colours.

Morane-Saulnier MS.230

Presented in the story as an advanced new prototype of german aircraft industry, faster and very maneuverable, it is given to handles of ace Bruno Stachel (G.Peppard). But airplane is not perfectly settled yet, and Bruno Stachel will crash and die in it. Actually, the aircraft is anachronistic for a WWI story, being in fact a 1929 french Morane Saulnier MS.230, a successful training airplane of the 30’s built at around 1100 samples.
