Looked at a movie this weekend about a 742, and what I wonder is, how do they fake the airlinecompany?
In some movies you actually see the A/C with fake logo on it.
Does hollywood actually rent a A/C and paint it?
And what airline would rent out there A/C to participate with a fake logo in a movie!?

Maybe there is a very simpel answer to this, but I don't have it.  Smile

Regards.

A German TV company once leased an unused AirMalta B720b to use it in a TV series. The plane was painted in fake colours.

You can still make out the fake livery. Sadly here is what was left of it after it was abandoned and burned by vandals.

This plane (?) still holds the world record for the fastest London-Karachi run.

Charter and supplemental airlines exist purely for their aircraft to be chartered, so if a film company come along and rent a DC10 or 747 for three days plus some time in the paint shop then great. World Airways used to do it all the time, they have a 727 in "Mayday 40,000 Feet!" with Transcon Airways titles on a standard World livery, a 707 getting blown up (off camera) in "The Parallax View", and a 707 in "Hijacked" where the aircraft formates with a Cessna on approach to Anchorage and with half a dozen Super Sabres with little red stars on the wings (masquerading as the Soviet AF). God bless World Airways for these great air-to-air moments.

See also: Flying Tiger (transformed into Trans Global) 707 in "Airport", AA 747 (transformed into Columbia Airlines) in "Airport 1975". All recognisable by the cheatlines.



fly Saha Air 707s daily from Tehran's downtown Mehrabad to Mashhad, Kish Island and Ahwaz

You can more and more see standard liveryies being used. Cast Away is probably the best example for an airline allowing one of their planes to chrash in a movie... probably the longest commericial of all times and alsp the only one where people paid money for to see it...  Big thumbs up

Btw: I watched a movie a few months back and you could see the Lufthansa 744 D-ABVK at an airport (LAX?). Does anybody know which movie I saw since I can't remember...

I just saw "Executive Decision" on TV yesterday - They had a custom-painted 747-200, in their "Oceanic" livery. Pretty decent movie, and some cool aerial photography. (even if the stealth-transfer thing very unrealistic)

The plane in the movie "Airport 77" was an old American Airlines 747-100. You could tell by the silver and the red white and blue lines.

In the movie `Drop Zone' the color scheme of the 747 was that of JAL. I beleive that in one of the `Turbulence' movies(1,2,or3) they also used an 747-200 that looked like a JAL a/c.

A lot times when airplanes are painted for a movie, they use special paint that washes right off when they are done.

Can anybody recommend a movie with REALLY good aircraft scenes? The only one that comes to my mind is 'Air Force One'. The plot is still ridiciously stupid, the flight scenes are pretty good.
I can't remember any other decent movies, most are pretty stupid and plainly bad...
Any suggestions?

I recommend the movie "Made". It only has a short airplane scene, but it's really really funny. In fact the whole film is good, but this is one of the better scenes. It is shot inside an actual TWA 767, which makes it better than the usual mock that you often see.

Airport 75 has a lot of great air to air footage of an AA 747 flying at low level over the Rockies. The plot is stupid, but good aircraft footage. Also if you have not already seen it, the original Airport is a must see. A classic.

Made is very similar to the movie Swingers. It also stars Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreu. If you liked Swingers, you will also like Made.

Die Hard 2 was a good movie. Which plane did they blow up? The 707, the military plane or the 747?

Pacific

Yeah, it was the 747.

In the Steve Martin movie "Tranes, Planes and Automobiles," there are some great scenes of STL at sunset with some departing aircraft and some TWA L-1011's.

Die Hard 2 it was the Windsor Airways Flight 114
(a DC8) that they blew up. Quite a few good aircraft shots in that one - I like the landing scene with the ATA Tristar (I think so anyway) and those other lovely airliners in the snow and flames! Northeast, Fiji Air...

Gotta love that Trans American 707 in Airplane (clearly a TWA in its day job)
