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

Avro Manchester Mk IA.

The Avro Manchester type 679 was a British twin-engine heavy bomber developed jst before the Second World War, making its first flight on 25 July 1939. Due to lack of directional stability, it had a third fin added to the twenty first airframes but later ones had enlarged tailplane and taller fins and rudders. Its main weakness was its underpower formula and unreliable engines. A major redesign led to the famous Avro Lancaster. Commissioned in November 1940, the Manchester saw action between end of February 1941 and mid-1942 before being retired even of training task in 1943.
Please, do not confuse with the First World War biplane, the Avro 533 Manchester !
