Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

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

Douglas DC-3A-228F

Registration NC33613 was an actual aircraft operated by Pan American Airways System. Built in 1941, its last registration was XC-BNO.

Antonov An-2

Apparent false registration N48550, Pan American Grace Airways never operated the An-2. In fact, the use of this aircraft is completely impossible in 1957, as the An-2 is a Soviet-produced aircraft. In reality, this aircraft should have also been a DC-3, or even a Grumman G-21 Goose or Consolidated PBY Catalina.

Antonov An-12

CGI adaptation of the An-12. Some quite significant differences, especially with the engines, but the basic structure is identifiable. Possibly a ficticious aircraft representing the Soviet Air Force, as the AN-12 was had not yet been adopted by the Soviet Air Force.
