I wonder how much movie producers have to pay airlines to film inside the cabins of aircraft and where they do it (at the gate, in the hangar, or - ?). Or do movie producers use mock-ups for the most part?
Regarding the 707 used in "Speed," I understand that aircraft was LEASED for the movie, not purchased. Then they blew the damned thing up! How do you return a leased piece of property that has been intentionally destroyed???
