In the movie Airport 1975, the name of the airline was Columbia Airlines and operated a 747 on that troubled flight. Now I know that is not a real airline, but do you know where I can get hold of a picture of that aircraft?

Good day,

I have been wondering myself for years now. I was able to obtain a KR slide of the Trans Global 707 from the the original "Airport", but no luck finding the Columbia/AA 747-100.

If any other slide collectors out there have one, I would be willing to pay you generously for it.  Smile

I remember seeing a picture of 707 Trans Global too in the Airliners magazine, but no luck finding the Columbia 747, if you happen to know where to obtain it, please let me know.

Columbia actually was the name of a short lived DC-9 operator back in the late 70s/early 80s.

Get in touch with someone who can do a "screen capture" from videotape.

I have no idea how it's done, but there are a lot of screen-cap sites on the net, especially for celebrity fan sites.

The airplane featured was an American Airlines 747-123; the red, white, and blue cheatlines give it away. I am not sure where the "Columbia" name came from, as the picture was released by Universal. The aircraft featured was the sold by the airline and converted to a freighter.

The Trans Global Airways 707 featured in the original Airport was a -349C originally delivered to Flying Tigers (the same airplane played both the roles of the jet involved in the in-flight explosion and the jet stuck in the snow and blocking the runway). That airplane passed through many hands before ending up flying cargo for TransBrasil, in whose hands it crashed in 1989.

Wo, FanofJets, you follow this stuff a lot more closely than I do.

Cheers,
