Three Comrades

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

Movie (1938)
French title : Trois camarades

Robert Taylor (Erich Lohkamp)
Margaret Sullavan (Patricia Hollmann)
Franchot Tone (Otto Koster)
Robert Young (Gottfried Lenz)

(Synopsis needed)

re-engined Fokker D.VII

Most of the Fokker D. VII were dismantled in order the terms of the Armistice. But a great number still in flying condition and sized by the winners were sold to Polish, Dutch, Swiss and Belgian air forces. USA inherited of 142 airframes. But in 1938, this formidable aircraft is no longer in active duty and very few have been preserved.
We can see that the original Mercedes D.IIIa powerplant has been replaced by another engine (or maybe no one but just a cowling with a different front radiator; there is no exhaust).
The aircraft is acting as a fighter from the Luftstreitkräfte (air force of the German Empire) but is devoid of national markings. Jasta 16 has had a Fokker with a checkered band but not the same way.
