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 Twilight Zone movie poster.

TV Series (1959-1964)
Alternative English title: Mystery Zone / The Twilight Zone: The Original Series / Twilight Zone

Starring:
Rod Serling (Narrator (156 episodes, 1959-1964))
Robert McCord (Waiter (32 episodes, 1959-1964))
Jay Overholts (Cowboy 2 (8 episodes, 1959-1962))
Vaughn Taylor (Mr. Carsville (5 episodes, 1959-1964))
James Turley (2nd Fireman (5 episodes, 1959-1962))
Jack Klugman (Capt. Paul Ross (4 episodes, 1960-1963))

Rod Serling's seminal anthology series focused on ordinary folks who suddenly found themselves in extraordinary, usually supernatural, situations. The stories would typically end with an ironic twist that would see the guilty punished.

Season One

Boeing B-52 Stratofortress

Ep.1.01 Where Is Everybody ?

Boeing B-52 Stratofortress.

Convair F-102 Delta Dagger

Ep.1.01 Where Is Everybody ?
The last man on earth is watching an advertising for Battle Hymn. This poster has nothing common with the theater poster nor the airplanes seen in this movie but title and actors (Rock Hudson and Martha Hyer) are right.

Sikorsky H-19 Toy

Ep.1.02 One for the Angels
Despite a three-wheeled landing gear and a see-through engine's cover, the shape of the H-19 is mostly right.

X-20 Spacecraft

Ep.1.11 And When the Sky Was Opened
Made for the Movie ? Or Cessna T-37 without its wings (trying to simulate a delta wing) ?
Please note that in 1957 a study started by Boeing about the X-20 Dyna-Soar (later cancelled in 1963 without being built). General shape was similar minus the tail : the Boeing's project was twin-tailed.
