Did the L-1011-100 in Steven King's movie The Langoliers belong to TWA? If so What was the ship and reg #s. The flight deck looked a bit different too. Was it an L-1011 flight deck? What plane did Foo Fighters use in their video "Learn to Fly" and what airline it belonged to? I thought the interior was a 707 maybe TWA, Pan Am or Eastern. I did see a UAL 727-200 making a decent toward the end of the music video though. There was a TWA 747-100 with it's old double red stripe logo on an A-team sitcom. In the show the plane was hijacked. Can anyone tell me if this was the plane that happened to be the doomed TWA flight 800 if not what happened to the aircraft? Was it scrapped? Can anyone else tell me stories about planes that starred in famous roll in the movies or music videos.

In the Foo Fighters video "Learn to Fly", the cockpit scenes were shot in the same one that thy used for the movie "Airplane".
I think that it is supposed to be a 707 flightdeck.
I guess the rest of the interior shots are from the same plane as well.

My friend was the prop master on the Langolers. he got be in the plane during numerous touch and go's (for filming reasons) he said the ex-eastern pilots were very cool and loved being part of movie. i think he said the plane belonged to cathay pacific, and every thing was filmed in Maine because Stephen king is terrified of flying..

One I have wondered about was the DC-4/ C-54 used in the forgettablely bad final scenes of "The Experts" with John Travolta. It was suppose to be Russian, with the big red star on the tail. But it was actually a flying a/c, not just a taxiing. Like so many others we see.
I saw the "Quantum Airways" 747-200 used in that silly NBC movie about the virus on-board the airplane parked in Shelton Washington, minus engines at a very small airport, it still had "Quantum" titles. There were also some ex-Aero Peru 727-200s and Avianca 727-100s and well as UA 727-100/200s and what looked like an ex-Arco/BP 727-100. Interesting collection at this very small airfield.
In Passenger 57 I believe the L-1011 from that one was an ex or perhaps current LTU plane and who can forget the exploding 747-100 from Die Hard-II that was in the Evergreen Int'l scheme.

Yep--the L1011 in "Pax. 57" was from the old LTU scheme. Didn't look too bad...
In "Turbulence", the Trans-Continental Airlines 747-200 was a re-painted Tower Air 747-200 (FF reg), as well as the pilot who helps the FA land the plane, that plane was a Tower Air machine (the only FF plane that doesn't look like it's about to fall to pieces!).
"Three Guys Named Mike" (194-)was filmed using MANY AA planes.

'Liar-Liar' - Tower Air Boeing 747-212B (N618FF)
'Executive Decision' - American International Airways Boeing 747-200 (ex-MEA machine) currently registered as N707CK
'Longaliers' - TWA TriStar-200.....does anybody know the reg. ???
'Airport 75' - AA Boeing 747-123....now flying for Polar Air Cargo as -123SF
need to find out the reg.
Airport 77' - Safe to say it's probably an AA 747-123
There is another movie that features a Western DC-10 but can't remember the name of the movie.

I think the movie with the Western DC-10 that you are thinking of is "Commando" with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Rae Dawn Chong (sp?). Arnie is drugged (?) and taken aboard the DC-10 for a trip to an unknown Latin American country and he manages to wake-up, incapacitate his captors, get into the cargo hold and jump out of the plane all during the take-off roll! Wow!

There was a Jean Claude Van Damme movie (I think it was kick boxerpart ?) At the end of the movie there was a United Airlines 747-200 in the old colors. reg #? Does anyone know? What ever happened to the plane. I also saw some of the old James Bond Movies with Rogor Moore as Bond. I think in "Live or Let Die Bond is flying on a Pan Am 747-100 from LHR-JFK in the begining of the movie.
By the way the airport scene in the Backstreet Boys music video; was that LAX? In the video was also a Boeing 727-200. Did anyone catch the reg # or knows what airline it belonged to?
I once saw 2 Pan Am 727-200s in a movie starring Bill Pullman in 1987(I think). Does anyone know the reg#s and what became of them?

For whatever reason, many music videos and commercials are made in Terminal 2 (mostly used by NW) at LAX. There is a current video on MTV/BET where the male singer steps onto a NW twin-engine (looks like a 757, but I only saw the front shot). Also, Wyclef Jean used Terminal 2 for his song "Gone til November", where at the end he's the last person on a NW DC-10. Neither of the N-numbers can be seen.

In madonnas ray of light video there is an scene at an airport where there is a NW DC-10 with the logo from the tail is removed. Also have any of you watched Baywatch Hawaii, sometimes they show a Hawaiian Airlines DC-10 taking off, on the show today they showed a HA DC-10 taking off and I could see a CO 747 parked at some hangar.

I used to work for an aircraft interior shop in Van Nuys, CA (just a few miles from Hollywood). They did a couple bizjet interior mockups that have been used in a number of movies and TV shows. I think they built one for the Jetstar scene in "Conair."
They also have a Caravelle that they use for various TV and movie shots, both interior and exterior. One production company had a three or four DeHavilland Beavers that were used in Harrison Ford's "Seven Days, Six Nights"
