What is the biggest Hollywood Aviation Blunder you have seen???

I think mine is the Brady Bunch II movie.

Carol is Kidnaped and taken to Hawwai and Mike and the kids change course to go and rescue her..

They leave LAX onboard a MD-80 which I dont think would have the range fully loaded to make it to HNL. Then the scene onboard when the Kids and Alice sing for the passengers.........They were in a MD-80 which is a 3+3 config but this AC has a 2 5 2 config....those seats must be a real tight fit if it is to be believed.........

Now share yours......

The movie Airplane..although it was all on purpose, and for good cause. Remains one of the best aviation movies and comedies of all time.

Minor correction: The MD-80 has 3-2 seating, not 3-3.

There were two episodes of "The Nanny" with Fran Drescher that featured some aerial stock footage of the prototype 747 (in Boeing colors). Then, the interior shots were of a narrow-body 1st class section with 2-2 seating.

I have seen other shows where a 737 takes off, and a DC-10 lands, but can't remember the specifics.

I'd like to say it has 2-3 seating, but I guess that's just me.

No, really, American has 2-3 seating while Delta has 3-2 seating.

The biggest crime against aviation committed by Hollywood was the Elliot Gould Disney movie, "Last Flight of Noah's Arc"

Short version, Crash on a tropical island in an old world war II bomber, convince some Japanese troops that didn't know the war was over that it is, then convert the crashed airplane into a raft and sail to safety. Kind of a rip off of "Flight of the phoenix"

They cut up a half dozen restorable B-29's to turn into sets and the "raft" for that film.


Honorable mention, I can't remember the name of the made for TV movie, but an NTSB investigator is working the case of a mid air collision that kills his knocked up flight attendant girlfriend. He thinks it is due to old equipment in the tower, all the time a controller goes nuts and builds a "ray gun" and then goes out and starts zapping control facilities to knock out their electronics to make his point.

My favorite is the the movie MIDWAY, which is full of blunders, by the way. I love it where the Charleton Heston character is landing his damaged F4F piston-engined airplane on an aircaft carrier. He loses control and crashes onto the deck and his airplane changes mysteriously into a jet-powered F9F, or something similar. The production crew just inserted real footage of a carrier crash into the sequence without bothering to check what kind of airplane they were replacing. I almost hurt myself laughing every time I see it...

Executive Decision. The cockpit is that of a 747 Classic, but the exterior was that of a -400.

GoodFellas. Notice a B747 flying on approach to IDL (now JFK) in 1963. Nice anachronism.

Passenger 57. The scene where the DC-10 is taking back off from the small Louisiana airport with Wesley Snipes climbing in the a/c via the nosegear wheel--well it's obvious the a/c is moving so slowly, yet not even a second later when Wesley's on board it's doin' 160kts (on a runway designed for Cessnas, no less!).

I do understand, though, that the movie producers are in the entertainment business, not the aircraft factual accuracy business.  Wink/being sarcastic

ADDED: L-188's comment about Last Flight of Noah's Ark: Having seen that movie in the theater (I was 11 at the time), it was years later when I realized the silly trivia about that flick.

  1. The actual flying a/c used in the movie was "Fertile Myrtle" and was used as a test a/c for the Navy and NACA (now NASA).
  2. Four other B-29's were "borrowed" from the Navy and used for the non-flying scenes of the movie. They were returned to the Navy after filming wrapped but whether they were airworthy I don't know.
  3. One of Rick Schroder's first films
  4. Filmed largely on Waikiki Beach!


Almost forgot about that film....

If you have ever seen "view from the top" about the flight attendents you would see an ATR-42 landing but then inside the cabin two F/As are sitting next to each other in front of cabin, well having worked them before the only thing in front of cabin is the foward cargo pit.Also later she is happy to be working an "express" flight with business class!.Since when do turpoprops have a business class?Another is the old Arnold classic "commando" were he escapes a DC-10 by going thru cargo hold onto the foward landing gear strut.Since when can u open any door on a pressurized airplane without the crew being aware of it?Well anyways these werent bad movies just funny to see things like that when you know its so wrong

I stand corrected...

But I insist I saw either the classic exterior and the glass cockpit or vice versa....

Also, back in the 1920's-30's there exist a plethora of films glamourizing aviation with a hideous amount of factual errors, continuity errors, a/v unsynchronized, etc. Among the more easily spotted are the scenes taking place at "altitude" but the a/c is perfectly still on the ground. Usually the director would have someone at the wingtips shaking the plane back and forth to give it the appearance it was airborne...

LOL @ CRJ'sRule. Another silly blunder from that movie is the British (not BA, just the nationality) airline that was "cleared" to land by the terrorists with the hacked ILS approach. The pilots mentioned that they were on "petrol fumes" and dangerously low on fuel. Yet when the a/c crashes into the snowclad ground it's a fireball characteristic of a fully-fueled a/c. Just a thought

"Stewardess School" is as bad as BAD can get. Cheezy comedy that I saw on Comedy Central full of blunders. Having the first class cabin single aisle, but walk through the curtains into a widebody coach cabin. The best mistake was the flight attendants ditching training: A plane was parked on the ramp, they blew the rear slide, slid down... into a raft floating in a pool. Guess the producers didnt realize that planes dont land the same on water as they do on land. Retards sat in the raft yelling for others to slide down. Cheezy, slightly funny, still gave that movie a big fat F.

the thing that bothered me the most about Die Hard 2 was that all those planes continued to hold! waiting for the runway lights to come back and ATC to start talking.....What self respecting crew would do that....they would have/should have diverted long ago.....

Alias. One of the eps: It's a widebody, and the hold has 4 metre ceilings. Exterior shots seem to indicate a DC-10, but it's pretty shadowy.

On a parallel note, I love the way cars always blow up in a huge fireball. Right...

I remember seeing LD3-containers in a belly of B727 and people walking in there straight up - can't remember the movie though.

In Cast Away, in the FedEx MD11 they have huge walkways on both sides and between the AMJ-containers - reality: you have about 10cm between the container and the wall and you can't get anything between two containers!
