WITHOUT LOOKING (by clicking on the pictures) can you name the films these airliners had starring or cameo roles in?

Good answers! No more hints on the last one, except to say it wasn't flying in its' famous scenes.

#4 looks like British Airways, because of the blue bottom, and Rolls-Royce Engines. Don't know what movie it played in...Errrrrrr....Thinking Thinking Thinking Thinking. It couldn't have been Air Force One....Thinking Thinking Thinking.....Oh Shit, I give up.

I wish we have a picture of the Columbia Airlines 747 (AA) from the movie AIRPORT 1975, and the 707 of Trans Global Airlines from the movie AIRPORT. Oh well, I prefer older airplane movies!

I'll take a guess on number four...know the other three.

Is that the 747 that John Cleese and Jamie Lee Curtis fly off to Rio in? From the movie, A Fish Called Wanda???

The one that was in the background when Ken runs over Otto with the compactor??

I'll have to check with my copy of the movie when I get home. Just a guess right now?



OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.

L-188! You win the prize!

G-BDXC, formerly the "City of Manchester", was indeed the BA 747 that provided the backdrop to the famous "K-K-K-Ken's c-c-c-coming to k-k-k-kill me!" scene at Heathrow in the 1989 comedy A Fish Called Wanda. In fact the registration lettering on the nosewheel door features prominently right behind John Cleese's 'Archie Leach' charector as he stands in the barrel of oil.

Shortly afterwards the film ends with a BA 74 Classic lifting off, flying our heros away to their new life in south America. I'm not sure if that aircraft is G-BDXC or just another BA jumbo lifting off out of Heathrow. My copy of the movie is on tape and well worn after years of lending it out to friends.

Picky Airliner fans will point out the obvious creative license the film took with the scene....specifically, how a 747 presumably being readied to fly to Rio from London has no ground staff around it at all, certainly no one who could point out that there was a man threatening another man with a silenced gun!  Wink/being sarcastic

And after the cabin crew allows Mr. Leach, dripping with waste oil, his seat in First Class, we see a concrete coated Otto peering into the two lovers from outside the First Class cabin......a hint of believability would be there if they were in coach and he was on the wing, but these were the days when BA 747s had permenant stepladders attached to their forward fuselages  Wink/being sarcastic

Then again, those of us who were laughing hysterically didnt care one way or the other!

Looks like -X C is at the end of the line. Nothing but parts in her future. Still, as happy a life as a 747 could lead...long, productive, working for only one very top of the line owner....and her own moment of stardom!
