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

Avion III of Clément Ader seen in Episode 2 of Les faucheurs de marguerites.

The Ader Avion III (also known as Aquilon - a Roman god of cold winds -) was designed by the French engineer Clément Ader between 1892 and 1897. Its story is subject of controversy as most of the documents were classified a century long and lots of data were in fact hypothesis. As the designer worked financed by the French War Office, and despite original patents, the secret trials have had few witnesses. Clément Ader worked on original concepts never used then like wing's bat, four blades (like feathers) propeller, etc... The twin engined machine, devoyed of control surfaces except a rudder, could have jumped several hundred feet but failed to attract interest of military high ranking officials during trials on October 1897.

This page lists all films that feature the Avion III.
