Anyone remember this line ?,
It's from Airport 75, my favorite Air Disaster movie ever.
What are your favorites ?
Yes, I know the acting's very corny and there are loads of inaccuracies etc but my Dad took me to see this when I was 11 in 1975. I thought the flying scenes were pretty amazing at the time and the 741 never looked better.
From that moment on I was hooked by the gorgeous 747 and I've been in awe of it ever since. Very sad to find out then that the original AA
747-100 that they used in the movie (N42695) was lost for real in an accident in California in 1989.
Some other interesting facts about Airport 75
Charlton Heston actually flew the 747-100 for about an hour during filming, he trained at the AA
747 Simulator facility in Fort Worth in 1974.
The helicopter rescue concept was used in Air Force One.
There was a really crap film called Sonic Impact which stole many scenes from Airport 75.
Lastly but not least of all, I know that Karen Black appeared cross-eyed but to a hormonal 11 year old she was gorgeous as Nancy Pryor. Can't wait to get the DVD.
I just used to love watching this movie, it had a great ending where everything turns out fine.
