The Day the Earth Stood Still

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

The Earth has reached its crisis point and organisms from the Solar System have come to save Earth as the best complex atmosphere. Its up to scientists and politicians to convince the human imitation organisms to give them a chance.

General Atomics MQ-9 Reaper

As with many other productions these UAVs have a CGI added afterburner.

Despite the markings, this UAV is not operated by the U.S. Army.

Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor

Not absolutely sure these are F-22s, but the profile fits the best.


Various Aircraft

Quite a few aircraft but noticeably several Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawks and several Lockheed C-130 Hercules.
