What annoyed me a bit is how the inside dream sequence did not match the "real" crash afterwards. In the dream, it takes a few minutes and loads of turbulence and manoeuvreing - in real, it just explodes a few metres after the end of the runway. Also, the shockwave would not have been that strong at that distance...
Anyway: Nice movie. A few nice surprise moments... Just in bad taste (using the TWA 800 crash as inspiration)
About showing plane crash movies in mid-air: I know that most airlines show only special airliner version of movies, with all sex and some violence cut out, so the kids can't see it and parents can't sue. For example, watching The World is not Enough in Air France was rather disappointing - I barely realized there was a helicopter attached above the big sawblades - and of course none of the helicopter and paraglider crashes were ever shown (neither was much of Sophie Marceau
VS does not follow this practice. I was pleasantly surprised to find the full jumping-out-of-a-plane beginning of Charlie's angels, and the helicopter explosion and everything else....
I suppose they would have shown Final Destination, or Air Force One, or Executive Decision etc. in full - if they had chosen it for their programme, which I do not know.
