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

Pearl Harbor : Hurricane or Sea Hurricane ?

Dear Sir,
Please read Talk:Pearl Harbor and you'll know why we've changed RAF paint scheme for FAA paint scheme.
Movies are not always historically right and IMPDB is only discribing what is visible on the screen. You're right : Battle of Britain never used Sea Hurricane but the Director, yes ! More seventy years later, such Old Soldiers are rare and welcomed even if not the most suitable for the action (that's why this Sea Hurricane is just seen in the background, not in flight !).
Among my project, Eagles over London is very interesting : Great Britain used Buchon (a derivative of the Messerschmitt Bf 109) when Luftwaffe is flying with ... Spitfire ! Of course, such a movie's page will say 'Buchon' under the British roundel and Spitfire wearing the swatiska. Despite History says the opposite, that's what is on the screen !
Otherwise, many thanks for your contribution, especially on Patriot Games !
