Would this also be something that Boeing and other manufacturers would have had to do with their planes when testing it before certification??

According to another thread here on A.net, the Saturn V rocket took 72 seconds to get to 30,000 FT, so.......yeah.

A complete disregard for aerodynamics and physics. Which is just Hollywood staying true to form, as in being purveyors of entertainment and not facts.
|Quoting RussianJet (Reply 4):|
On a particularly silly note, would it be possible to put some humungous, giant, fighter-style rockets with afterburner onto something like a 747, in order to achieve such ludicrous performance? Would the force just rip the pylons off the wing? Has anything even vaguely similar been tried?
|Quoting tb727 (Reply 3):|
No. That's about 40,000' per minute rate of climb. An F-15 could do it but not the 747, even modified(reasonable modification)in any way at a minimum weight.
|Quoting StarAC17 (Reply 15):|
On another note if a 747 was climbing at 10000ft/min, what would be the G force felt by a passenger?
