Dear Friends:

As many of you have noticed, The Internet Movie Plan Database (impdb.org) 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

Richard Burton (Maj. John Smith)
Clint Eastwood (Lt. Morris Schaffer)
Mary Ure (Mary Elison)
Patrick Wymark (Col. Turner)

Allied agents stage a daring raid on a castle where the Nazis are holding an American General prisoner... but that's not all that's really going on.

Junkers Ju 52/3mg4e

Flies the Allied commando team into Bavaria and later rescues it at the end.
It's a Swiss Air Force Ju 52/3m, registration A-702 which was used as a Luftwaffe aircraft; the code could be that of the KGrzbV 109... if flipped.
Same aircraft in other movies at IMPDb: Frequently Seen Aircraft.

Bell HTL-4

Flies General Rosemeyer to the Schloss Adler. Schaffer kills the pilot so it can't be used by the Germans. An American Bell HTL-4 (47G) equipped with German markings, this helicopter is the source of some controversy among viewers who aren't aware that there were rotary-wing aircraft during World War II, even on the German side (birotor Focke-Achgelis Fa 223 and Flettner Fl 282) . However, they looked much different than this, and it is several years too soon for the 47G. It is taken for granted by every character and even referred to as a helicopter in dialog.

North American T-6 Texan

"German" fighter planes seen at Oberhausen Airfield (in fact, loaned Austrian Air Force trainers). Smith cripples them by running into them one at a time with the bus so they can't take off and follow the Junkers.
