Almost Famous

Tue Sep 19, 2000 3:25 am

I am happy to report that almost famous was not only a good movie but it had some pretty realistic airliner scenes.

First off the main groupie fly's from JFK via to San Diego on Eastern Airlines. Not only did they pick Eastern which I thought was cool but it seemed like the 727 was freshly painted in the correct eastern airlines scheme for the era.

The only thing that might have been incorrect was the aircraft was a 727. How would some one have flown from JFK to SAN in 1973 on Eastern? L1011 to Lax?


Also the main characters sister moves from SAN to SFO to become a FA for guess who???? you are correct! PSA...The pink mini skirt uniforms were perfectly recreated.

There is also a gripping emergency landing in a 60's or 70's twin engine prop plane, similar to the one Lynard Skynard crashed in.

Anyway, the movie gets an 8 on my 1-10 scale
