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

Convair 880 of Delta Air Lines.

The Convair 880 is a four engined jet airliner that was produced by the Convair division of General Dynamics to compete with the Boeing 707 and Douglas DC-8 by being smaller and faster. It was produced between 1959 and 1962, however its cost and fuel consumption was much higher than hoped and the program production never reached General Dynamics aspirations.

A streched version, the 990 Coronado was launched to satisfy American Airlines' request, but only 37 aircraft of this version were built, and overall only 102 aircraft 880/990 have been produced.

This page lists all films that feature a variation of Convair 880/990.
