Happened to catch part of the movie "Red Eye" on ABC tonight. Just had to laugh at the Miami Airport used in the movie...bright and open with massive palm trees everywhere. What's funny is that most of the scenes appear to have been filmed in the "fictional" MIA Airport...while some were filmed in the real airport. Just had to laugh when I saw it as it's not the MIA I know...

According to the Internet Movie Database, LAX and ONT were the airport locations used in this film. Having never seen the movie, I would venture to guess that they used LAX for the fictional MIA exterior shots and used ONT for interior shots (Bit of trivia for you. For the short-lived LAX series several years back, they used ONT and DAL as the stand-in for LAX.).

Sounds like Concourse H to me. We've even got a flock of birds that have set up shop in an A/C vent next to Gate H11.  Silly

Some parts of the chase scene were actually filmed at MIA, though. The train she uses is the actual train used to shuttle passengers between Concourse E and the E Satellite, and when she's in the bridge with the moving walkways, those are the bridges between the terminal and the parking garage. Of interest is that they replaced the typical "A-E" and "G-H" that would've normally been on the sign there with "A-M" and "N-Z",

I noticed the same thing. I thought the walkway and train looked familiar. Speaking of the train, did it ever get fixed? I had heard the train that crashed a while back never was repaired.

That movie was especially bad in terms of aviation consistency. They used 737s and A320s interchangeably for the exterior shots, and while the interior was 2-3-2, the overhead bins did not resemble anything that I've ever seen on a 767.

Nope. The train should've been replaced years ago, so it's on its last legs to begin with. No use in fixing it at this point.

Now we're just depending solely on the north train, which gets the job done, but has more than its fair share of breakdowns due to its age and the fact that it's the only train left.

I've heard a whole bunch of rumors concerning what they're going to do--replace the train, close the satellite, connect the two terminals, etc, etc, but there's nothing official yet. As always, all attention is being focused on the North Terminal.
