Continental Airlines 747 On TV Right Now

Sat Feb 07, 2004 11:08 am

Just figured i'd let you guys know.

Right now, on " FOX ", theres this show " Thats just wrong " thats on right now.

They were using a 747-200 ( Clearly a continental airlines one ) parked out in the desert. Had some engines attached, started her up, then put a trailer behind the engines ( Just the #3 i believe ) and revved up the engine to near full thrust.

Trailer was blown away!

I will see if i can catch the reg later, unless someone beats me to it.

They will provide " MORE " scenes later in the show, so keep watching!

I thought that was pretty weak, with the one exception being the car blowing away.
