"Code 11-14" Movie

Fri Aug 22, 2003 5:47 am

Sorry if this has been posted, I do not think it has.

Last night on CBS I saw an ad for a movie called "Code 11-14" with the plot of hijacked aircraft and someone has to save it (a star from JAG).  Anyway, it showed a compurterized 747 (-300 or -400) with some good real interior pics.

From "TV Guide":
"David James Elliott stars as an FBI agent whose family is in harm's way in this by-the-numbers TV drama that was filmed two years ago, but never aired due to the Sept. 11 tragedies. The title is an airline code meaning that a dead body is on board. That's never a good thing, especially when the deceased is the victim of a serial killer. Luckily agent Kurt Novack (Elliott) is on the flight...but so are his wife (Terry Farrell) and son, who appear to be the murderer's next targets. JAG fans may appreciate this suspense yarn more than others since their hero is in fine form here, as is Nanci Chambers (a.k.a. Mrs. Elliott), as an FBI special agent."

Been in the biz nearly 25 years and never heard of that. I guess I missed that day of training....  Big grin

I just saw the end of it and I swear it was a QF 747SP. Renamed "Oceainic',but it was white with a red tail.Engines looked like Rolls Royce.

The engines were Rolls Royce, you could see the Royce on one while they were walking around outside, I also thought it was a QF 747SP.

Makes me wonder...

Do 747s and other "jumbo-jets" really have accessable corridors and electronics bays like they portrayed in this movie?

I've been in the electronics/avionics bay of an L-1011, accessable through the lower-galley, but I wasn't aware of any other planes like this.

Best part of the movie? When the open a conveniently-located escape hatch about 1000 feet in the air. A few loose objects shoot up into the air – nothing major.

Of course, when they start a sharp climb, nothing further happens, because the onboard killer has been captured – and they don't need another disaster (ie, the blowout of the panels aorund the opened hatch).

Stupid movie...

It was certainly supposed to be a 747-300 or -400, as the upper deck had mid-deck exits. Of course, on the ground, it's a 747SP.

Movies like this prove endlessly entertaining with all of their obvious mistakes – at least for people like us!
