No, this didn't really happen, but I came across a movie of an American Airlines DC-10 landing on a freeway in LA. It's supposed to be a short special effects movie shown on windowsmedia.msn.com and was created on a personal computer! Looks pretty neat, but I sure wouldn't want to be the guy in the van! (he's lucky to be unhurt, fortunately) And it looks fairly realistic, except maybe for the final shot of the DC-10 resting on the freeway. Have a look at this movie and see what you think!

Pretty Cool! Actually, in the scene where the plane crosses the overpass, it looks like the a/c is actually an MD-11 because it is longer and you can see the winglets.

Pretty entertaining stuff. However I don't know why he couldn't use the runways at LAX, 4 blocks away!
Thanks for the link.

I think you need some sort of plugin that you get from the official site of the movie. However, when i went to the official site I could not play it, but even when I had downloaded the plugin the movie would still not play. But when I went to the windows media site I did not have to download anything and the movie played!

Only one error? Ever weigh a DC10? You think the car roof would look that good after supporting a DC10? Also, the AA logo really looked to be dubbed in. The colors just didn't look "right" on the version I watched .

Ok, I'll give you all of those (except for the colors...it looks OK on broadband)...I was referring to the errors after I had suspended belief.

It works on my Windows Media Player, and it's crystal clear (I'm watching BBC World now). GREAT video!

If you are having problems viewing the move, you most probably require the DivX codec for Windows Media Player. There are also QuickTime and RealMedia versions of the movie available.

AWESOME! I got it to work for me. What a video...a bit unrealistic, but kinda scary, and really funny - the expression on the guy's face as he sees a DC-10 in his rear view mirror, tries to out run it, its nose collapses on his car...and that old lady in the Lincoln...that was HYSTERICAL! I wonder how this film was made??

Glad you guys liked the movie - I caught sight of it on the school computer. The movie plays best on Windows Media, but as NJ Turnpike said, you can actually play it on Real Player or Quicktime.

An IFILM window should automatically pop up after you click on the movie choice on the website if you don't have Windows Media Player (which I don't have on my PC). There, you can pick the choice of Real Player, Quicktime or Windows Media. The number of Ks there besides "Quicktime" (which I do have on my PC) and "Windows Media" in that pop-up denote the modem speed, not the movie size. But be prepared to give a lot of time to download! It is worth it, though!

Oh, yeah, that was a pretty funny movie!

go to www.ifilm.com and on the left is a pale blue section of the top 20 films viewed. 405 is listed at number one. click on that. From there select player and speed you want. If you want quicktime you can download it at www.quicktime.com. Once ready hit play and it will begin to download. If you don't have a fast connection this download will take some time before the mvoie will play. Hope that helps.
