movie "Good Guys Wear Black"? They fly to Squaw Calley Ca. , so in real life that would usually mean Reno Airport. Is this the field they actually used? The plane they fly in and eventually is blown up by a bomb is a big 4 engine propliner. The bomb was put on the plane by simply walking up to a baggage cart and putting a suitcase containing the bomb on the cart. Unbelievable. Just saw the movie and it made me curious. Thanks.

IMDB says it was filmed in Squaw Valley, but doesn't mention the airport. I've not seen that... that... 'er, "film"   , so can't say about either the airport or the plane. Truckee Tahoe (TRK) is close by though (I scoped it out years ago when I was going to add an aerotow authorization to my commercial glider ticket). 7000' elevation with a 7000' runway. Lake Tahoe airport (TVL) is kinda close too, at the south end of the lake. Beautiful area!

It was a small commercial terminal. I've been to the Lake Tahoe area and to Truckee airport and Tahoe airport. It was not either one of those. It was either Reno or some place in southern Ca. posing as the Squaw Valley area.

I remember seeing that movie many years ago. I always assumed the airport was TVL, but it could have been further south. The aircraft was a Lockheed Electra which Holiday Airlines flew into TVL at the time (as did AirCal for a while) because the airport did not permit jet operations. Seeing the plane I just assumed that it was South Lake Tahoe.
