Great photo opportunity!
But really, how can we take that film seriously, if they use a Boeing to shoot all the scenes?

And that's typical Hollywood, using the wrong airplane type for economical reasons!

Because only the Boeing crash :)
No seriously you can easily find an old or retired 737 than a old a320, I guess. I'm not serious, sorry.

Great picture...its going to be one bad movie if they use a B735 instead of a A320.

If the caption of this photo is true.....how can the filmmakers make such an obvious mistake of using the wrong type of aircraft??

Yes, it was an Aorbus. Once again Hollywood gets it wrong.

Using a 737 for the miracle of Hudson? Really? This is not testament to the fact A320 FBW helped a great deal this day...

Nice to see some behind the scenes footage.....just pretty sure it was an airbus in real life.....there plenty of A320's now in the desert.....

Interesting shot but I must agree with other comments, this will make this film just a big joke.

Look, behind the black curtain you can see the green screen peeking out. Don't they use that to project computer generated images onto? I keep expecting to see JAWS coming out of the water.

A bit silly looking to me... the A320 family is 25 years old itself, and BA for one, seeing this is in England, has already retired a bunch themselves... it cannot be that much harder to find an early-build mothballed A320 than an old 737 even if it goes back much further indeed and is probably cheaper... film is now cheaper as well!

Nice photograph, but it annoys me that they couldn't have used an A320. What is it with film producers and aviation, they never manage to get the details right!

Guys (and ladies :-)), take into account that the 737 is also acting here. Thefilm makers will be expected to sort ourt the makeup to realize an A320 in the final movie.

It's like in The Simpsons; cows doesn't look like cows on film, you have to use horses. 320s doesn't look like 320s on film, you have to use 737's. Cool picture.

Well it's strange they use a 737 since it was an A320 :) Great capture !!

If you notice, the plane has no markings and is surrounded by a wall. This is probably used for closeups of the actors disembarking anyway. One would hope.

Interesting shot, although an A320 changing into a B735 is surely a disaster on the Hudson...

It's a very interesting and unusual shot, but I'll NEVER see the film! Spending too long yelling "that's not an A320!!!" in every scene!

Oh yes! Set the scene to music by Bobby Darin's - Splish Splash and you get the idea.

Great capture of this backlot set. Sad that they even try with aircraft when clearly it is too small and only has single overwing exits. Low budget films are so sad when they can keep continuity like when someone is shown at the gate boarding a 747 and when inside it clearly is not 3-4-3 in but 2-3-2 most likely making it a 767 and then as they show the aircraft in flight they show a 737 but when it lands it's a 747.

Remember when this Astreus a/c flew in Palmair colours from BOH named the Spirit of Peter Bath.

Correct me if I'm wrong but any FA worth her training would NEVER have opened a rear door in the Hudson water landing and by all accounts neither of the rear doors on the REAL A320 that landed on the Hudson were opened so what's up with this image besides the fact that it's a Boeing 735?

There are many B737 in bad statement so they can be used for a film, there is almost no A320 in such condition.
Anyway this is very wrong issue to chose a Boeing instead of an Airbus.
