Check Out This Aircraft - The Aalto Air E-474

Mon Nov 21, 2005 9:48 am

Go to this site http://flightplan.movies.go.com/index_main.html

Then click the "Explore AALTO Air E-474" tab.

Looks like an A380 body, 747 wings and the original 787 cockpit design.

First class looks fantastic 

Pity the aircraft isn't real  

Let me know what you think....

Enjoy   Wink

Looks like an A380 with a 787 nose. So basically an A380 with a much needed nose job.

EDIT: Haha, I wrote that before I saw your edit.  Smile

Outside / shape:
Take An A380, semingly the A389, flat it to a round hull shape, take the A330/A340 tail, combine the A330/340 winglets with these massive wings (makes the ewinglets inconvenient smaller). The wings are far too large - hey, this is an airliner, not a F 15!

Crew rest room:
BS, 2x in the aft and the med-aft of the hull - "great" idea (who's desining that?) to have Captain and FO's walk acroos half of the bird to their rest room - BS.

7 Galleys:
show me that you place 800 pax in this bird with 7 Galleys - no asian domestic seating, please  Wink

"Avionics":
3x HAL 2000 stolen from "2001" - lame. And in NO airliner there would be room wasted by nice looking and a stylish assembly of computers - BS. Obvioulsy the film needs a scene in this area and therefore this - hmm - assignment.

Else:
Not a nice loking plane IMHO.

Seems to me that if Hollywood can spend XXX millions of dollars on producing a big-budget movie, surely it won't cost them that much more to have a "qualified person" advise them on the actual physics of a/c design and from that, come up with something a little less like a picture that my 6 year-old daughter has drawn!

Looks like a good movie. I guess I'll have to wait for the DVD since it appears I've missed it. Lousy college, lol.

As for the E-474, interesting take, though I coubt the avionics bay would be so friggin' big. Plus the "attic" would be jammed up with ducting and wires...maybe an overhead crew rest or two.

Looks like the A380 will have a run for its money.  Wink

I couldn't really tell from the graphics, but it looks as if those are 744 style winglets, only bent back as if to actually hook the air. Now I'm a second year AE, I don't take my Aerodynamics class until next year, but wouldn't that induce drag? One seemingly good idea, if you pay attention to the detail in the graphic it looks as if an A300 style wingtip fence has been added to the top of the vertical stabilizer. Amazing noone's thought of that before...but I'm sure someone who has taken the requried Aerodynamics course will probably explain why that is. Big grin

The thing that made me laugh was the route map. I wasn't aware there was such a market for a Berlin-Longreach flight...

I saw this film last night at a cinema preview.

The plane has so much unused space it is untrue. The way that you could access various parts of the plane from the toilets would be a great concern!

It even has a server room at the front of the plane.

The colour scheme seemed to be modelled on AA, but they forgot to polish the plane.

The plane also appeared to be affected by turbulence rather a lot!

The film was good for an hour but was rushed at the end IMO
Next flights: Nothing

There is no need for a "vertical stab'let" since the vertical stabilizer generates no lift (air pressure on both sides are considered equal). Basically it would be only for aesthetics...that is if it was not so fugly.

Jodie should not quit her day job .... that plane is awful, horrendous.  yuck

The movie is very far from reality, of course... being an engineer sometimes ruins it in these kinds of movies... I can't really blame them, but the part where jodie foster, not the aircraft designer, not the avionics engineer, but the propulsion engineer, sabotages the aircraft, by just inverting some conections (and knowing exactly what she is doing) is a little bit too much. But hey, it's the turning point  Wink

Gotta love the center stow bins in coach.
Looks like they dump the contents on your head when you open them.
That'd be fun to watch.

Also, it sure is nice to see a cargo compartment floor that isn't all cluttered up with silly stuff like drive and restraint systems.
