Airport In New U2 Video

Sun Oct 01, 2000 4:31 pm

The video for U2's "Beautiful Day" has the band towards the end of the video playing on the end of a runway. There are also a few 747's and other a/c taking off and landing right over them (cgi, no doubt). Does anyone recognize the airport? The video's on VH-1 and MTV2 quite a bit.

I've read that this was from Paris-Charles De Gaulle Airport. The cover photo from the album is from inside Hall 2 F at CDG, The777Man

From the little part of the video that I have seen, I think that The777Man is correct. They show gate F30 in the video, and have a few takeoff shots of twin-engined widebodies that look like AF jets.

One plane taking off is a MEA (Middle East Airlines). I think it's a A320/321.
At the moment MEA operates the A310 to CDG.

Has anyone seen the movie "Random Hearts" with Harrison Ford? I saw it today on a rented video, and there was some scenes in an airport, does anyone know which airport it is?

Anyone know why my topic header is bold? I didn't mean to do that.

Your topic header is only bold for you so that you can see your own posts easier. I noticed this myself about a week ago. The777Man
