probably old footage - DL had some 747s back in the early 70s.


Some see lines, others see between the lines.

They flew them in the early and mid 70's. The time frame for that movie is around 2000. I'm surprised that it is in there.

DL flew four 747-132s back in the 1970s - in the widget scheme. The 747s flew domestic routes, including JFK-MIA, JFK-ATL, ATL-LAX and ATL-DFW-LAX, and others. During this period, most of the US carriers had 747 fleets deployed on key domestic routes - the 747 was far too much airplane for these routes and the airlines (including DL) had a terrible time trying to keep them filled. The 747s were phased out of service at DL in a few years time.

DL also flew the DC10-10 (5 examples I believe) that were ordered and purchased when the L1011 program got into trouble. DL flew the 747, DC10 and L1011 at the same time for a couple of years, giving it the distinction of the first airline to fly all three original widebody types simulateously. As you probably know, DL settled on its L1011 fleet and eventually dropped both the 747 and the DC10 (the ex-DL DC10s went to UA).

Actually DL flew 5 747-132's ship numbers 101-105.

I take it your referring to the one that is taken overhead? Actually, if you look close, you can see the winglets, which would make it a 744(thats my belief anyways). And yes, I would say it was done with computer imaging. I say that because the plane was in widget colors, DL hasn't flown a 747 since 1977, and in the middle of the movie, they have a DL 763 make a hard left turn and its in the 1997 colors.

I love the movie and do like the beginning, where you can see the AC 320 banking over the NY skyline.

I think a DL 767 is in the movie too. It was in the scene where they are trying to move the most aircraft, and the DL pilot didn't want to make a hard turn.

Its funny, I love that movie. But the view's of planes are so fake. Has anyone else noticed that when they show an AA plane, the AA colors are backwards. Its pretty bad, even for hollywood.

As bad as that may seem, the AA colors have actually been put on real aircraft backwards before.

I believe the DC-10s were leased from UA until the L10s arrived in 1973/74.

If I remember correctly, they leased them from United. I have the "DL HISTORY" book at home, need to read about it again. They leased them to see if it was a practical airframe for the airline. I think in the end Delta saw a future where gas prices where going to soar and decided to stick with 3 engines or less. Now we are at 2, what a world has turned out to be.

I can remember DL also had their B-747 as a regular in BOS. IIRC they flew them BOS-MIA, BOS-LAX, and BOS-ALT. But that was some 33 years ago.

IIRC, in addition to the B-747-132s, DL also had a lot of DC-8-61/71s. Didn't DL also operate the B-707-100s for a while in the late 1950s?

I believe that the Boeing 707 is one or the few US-built airliners that Delta had NEVER had in its fleet. I once tried a photo search here on Airliners.net, selecting Boeing 707 for aircraft type and Delta for the airline. The result list was empty. It seems to me that if it can't be found on Airliners.net, it probably never existed (I would love to see a computer-generated image of the hypothetical Delta 707. Maybe I ought to requested one from the M.A.P. website).

However, one other airliner Delta used to fly long ago is the Convair 880. I've heard that they were even more notorious for fuel-inefficiency smoke emissions that the 707 and DC-8 (even before the DC-8s were re-engined). My dad told that he used to fly on Delta's Convair 880s between Houston and Chicago in the early 1970s, and enjoyed flying on them, as he found the seating to be very comfortable and spacious (even in coach).

The 747s flew domestic routes, including JFK-MIA, JFK-ATL, ATL-LAX and ATL-DFW-LAX, and others.

They also operated internationally on interchange services with Pan Am. They often appeared at LHR on PA's LHR-IAD services, which continued to ATL as a DL domestic run.

Delta also operated American 707-123's on their interchange from Atlanta to the West Coast via DAL and GSW from 1959-1961, when Delta gained its own route authority to LAX, SFO, LAS, PHX and SAN from DAL and ATL. In fact, Delta was the only airline to operate the CV-880, B-720, DC-8, and B-707, the first four US built Jets similtaneously. While they did operate an occasional PanAm 707 on the MSY-ATL-IAD-LHR interchange, that was usually operated with a Pan Am DC-8-32.

From Imdb.com

"Factual errors: During the opening credits, a Boeing 747-400 in full Delta Airlines colors can be clearly seen flying over New York. Delta never flew the Boeing 747-400"

Odd huh?

Which was not in their fleet until Nov 2000, over 18 months after the movie was released.
