just saw the movie.
quite late, i know, but we get the movies a little later in germany. i wanted to see it earlier, but...
ok, it can´t be an MD-10, because in 1995, when hanks aka as chuck noland goes on this flight, there wasn´t any MD-10s.
i´m not sure about any winglets or if the engine which exploded was the tail engine but i think you guys got it right, i trust you on that so it looks if it was a MD-11.
but although one is lead to think that he enters an a-300 (couldn´t it have been an a-310???) it is not shown and not mentioned which plane he enters. in moscow and memphis, except for the ending, they only showed airbusses which easily leads to the conclusion that he boarded an a-300, but...
but wasn´t there a flight engineer??? that would hint at the DC-10, if it really was an engineer.
i think it´s been an MD-11 because it´s the most logical conclusion.
ok, regarding the thing that he went to malaysia. i remember that he said something about him going to malaysia, but wasn´t that supposed to be after a break when he comes back? there was still something with south america. but i don´t think that he took a flight to malaysia. anyway, the makers of this movie did quite a good job not giving us too much info about the plane so that no one can be really sure what plane it actually was. and so i think, if they would have sent him to malaysia, they wouldn´t let him crash near the cook islands and tahiti because that doesn´t make sense.
although fedex #88 obviously goes to malaysia. hmm, dunno.
does anyone has an idea what fedex flights pass the south pacific, do they go the AUS and NZ?
hope no one gets mad at me. i´m aware that this topic is an older one but i just wanted to share some of my thoughts.
If only pure sweetness was offered, why's this bitter taste left in my mouth.
