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

Sikorsky S-29A seen in Hell's Angels.

The Sikorsky S-29A was an all-metal, twin-engine biplane airliner for 15 passengers, first flown in 1924. Only one airframe was built as no company ordered it. It flew with success during five years in a variety of tasks. In 1930, Howard Hughes bought it and after heavy convertion work, used it as a german bomber. Damaged beyond repair during movie action, the shots were used again in at least five other movies during the thirties.

This page lists all films that feature the Sikorsky S-29A.
