Airport ranks supreme! Heck, they have real airlines in the movie with the exception of Trans Global!

Welcome to A.net. Looks like you're new here. There's a separate forum for these type of questions. It's the Polls and Preferences forum. Enjoy.

Would have to be 'Turbulence' with Ray Liotta.


First Class passengers are my favourites. They can't get any further forward without an ATPL.

Me too!
I wonder if they will ever demonstrate the automatic landing instructions on the FMC as realistic as in this movie again...

A propos,
anyone seen flightplan yet? Any thoughts on it, but don't spoil!  Wink

'AIRPLANE'

"What's ur vector victor?"

"Good luck, we're all counting on you"

"Please excuse the mild turbulence, this is caused by periodic air pockets. By the way, does anyone know how to fly?"

"If Kramer finds out about this, the shits gonna hit the fan"

"The FAA and the airlines, they're all a bunch of liars and cheats!"

"It's a big building with patients in it, but that's not important now"

"Surely you must be kidding me. No i'm not kidding you, and stop calling me surely"

"Ease her down Striker . . . DOWN!"

"Have u ever been to a turkish prison?"

"Do you hang around the gymnasium?"

"Have u ever seen a grown man naked?"

"I'll take Ham on Five, Hold the Mayo"


I could go on forever! Not only the best aviation movie, but a top 10 comedy overall!

I cant remember which Airport movie it was but I loved the one where the 707 is stuck in the snow and they are working feverishly to remove it. The mechanic jumps in the cockpit and throttles her up breaking all the rules!
He gets the plane out just in the nick of time! The mechanic has some great lines in there when the other guy tells him he cant do that!

I think that one was the original Airport with George Kenedy. Oooh oooh! It's coming back to me now! Joe Patroni! That was the mechanics name.
It was Airport 1970! The one with the bomb on board! Dont you just love the scenes inside the airport? All those wonderful old airline ticket counters that are names now long gone!?

Hell yeah! That landing gear that tore through a Vegas hotel! Awesome! Turbulence 2 and 3 sucked though, and I think there's a 4th film out now, probably sucks as well...

Sure, we're concerned for our lives. Just not as concerned as saving 9 bucks on a roundtrip to Ft. Myers.

I like Executive Decision. Although one of favorite movies (not an ailrine, but an airliner) is Air Force One with Harrison Ford.

Airport, without a doubt.

A close second is Flight 90: Disaster on the Potomac.

I do quite enjoy a spot of flying - more so when it's not in Economy!

'Turbulence' definately for me, 'Turbulence 2' was also quite good but not as dramatic as number 1. "She's not a stewardess, she's a Flight attendant" quality line :P

The Original Airport . . .

The (TWA) mechanic is Joe Petroni . . . who proclaims "The don't call 'em emergencies any more, they call 'em Petronis!!" And when he deals with that pilot on that stuck "Trans-GLobal 707" he says, "Take the Wings off this thing and you can use it for a tank. This baby can handle anything except a bad pilot!" Once the plane is out, he says, quite gleefully when the guy in the right seat says The book says that couldn't be done, "Well, that's one nice thing about the 707, it never learned to read".


That's my vote: The original Airport.
