"Indian Airlines" A321 at Prestwick

Mon Sep 07, 2020 1:10 pm

Seems a Bollywood hijacking film is being made at PIK of all places. One of Titan's A321s is being used!

Nice to see that tail design back again.

They've been filming in the Glasgow area for several weeks now, all having arrived at GLA from BOM on a specially chartered Air India 777-200. An "actual" Indian Air Force C-130 arrived at PIK today too, not sure if that's connected or just a gas n' go ? I believe some vehicles resembling German police cars are dotted around the A321 too.

It's real identity is G-POWU of Titan (ex Air Berlin). Real reg on display for the flight in, then the fake one applied for the filming.

'According to Indian newspaper The Hindu, the shoot will benefit from an on-site doctor at all times, with the cast and crew under strict orders to wear a wrist-watch that will constantly monitor their oxygen levels, body temperature, blood pressure, stress levels and pulse - with a centralised dashboard recording the parameters of the unit and keeping check for any changes in readings'.

Is this really necessary when you go to Scotland?.

Glasgow’s currently under some lockdown conditions (Or at least, visiting other people’s houses isn’t allowed) after an increase of cases.

Not unless you think we are Covid free here ? We've seen roughly 10% of all UK deaths in a country that has roughly 10% of the UK population. As "dramatic" as these film crew measures sound, I also wouldn't be surprised if these were just announced to enable a secure passage into the country. I work in television here in Scotland and most people are amazed this drama shoot is ongoing when little or nothing else is.

PIK, however, is well outside the area affected.....

According to Skyliner, the police cars around in the shoot are supposed to be representing UAE cop cars.

Well in that case, good luck recreating the weather typical of that area, in Scotland.

Ha Ha ! Good point, but probably nothing some creative film director can't overcome with a bit of clever editing.

They probably chose Prestwick as it's a sort of Generic European-looking place as far as they're concerned. Maybe the dark, cloudy weather and frequent rain adds to the dramatic effect.

Those are also press shots, not stills from the film. Picture 8 also includes a whole lot of production crew and equipment. They are not filming the movie from the same angle that the Glasgow Live photographer is at.

This picture caption made me laugh:

“The huge plane being used for scenes at Prestwick Airport”

Someone’s only ever flown on Dash-8s!
