  • Aviation Movie Mistakes

    Was just watching the movie "Bogus." In an early scene a Convair 240 passes by in the background and the soundtrack sounds about like a 737-300. Couldn't help but chuckle.

    List your favorite movie mistakes that are aviation related. "Airplane" or any of it's sequels doesn't count since those errors were deliberate for comedic purposes. Looking for actual blunders made by the movie makers for this one.

      The Wedding Singer. The "Las Vegas Air" a/c appears to be an A320 with a 747 interior. They used stock footage of a Canadian A320 for the takeoff/landing exteriors.

        The Amazing Race 4. They showed a United 744 in Narita, and they flashed to a 757 taking off. Coure it aint a movie...

            Airplane (1): The airplane is a 707, but the sounds are from a propeller-driven airplane

            Airplane(2, the sequil): The controller keeps on referring the airplane Striker landed years ago as a 767, even though it was a 707 in the previous movie.

              Ugh, remember what movies you're talking about. :P

              In reality, it would be better to list aviation movies without serious mistakes.

                Executive Decision- The galley where Halle Berry is for a good deal of the movie has an elevator, a la L-1011. As far as I know, the 747-200 doesn't have a lower galley.

                Also, the plane is frequently referred to as a 747-400 (Flight deck manuals, 2 man cockpit, Kurt Russell's computer), even though externally it's a clearly a 747-200.

                  The mistakes in Airplane 1 and 2 were both intentional, the film makers even acknowledge it in the commentary. The worst mistakes as far as i'm concerned are in the Turbulencee series, the first one more so.

                    Top Gun: In the last fight scene, Tom Cruise says to his rear - "I'll hit the brakes and he'll fly right by!". Instead of hitting the brakes, however, Tom Cruise throttles up!!!
                    "The Director also sets the record straight on what would happen if oxygen masks were to drop from the ceiling: The passengers freak out with abandon, instead of continuing to chat amiably, as though lunch were being served, like they do on those in-flight safety videos."

                      Yeah, right. And where else can we see Northrop-manufactured MiGs?

                        Top Gun is litered with mistakes. A majority of the on deck scenes are of prowlers not Tomcats.

                          Airport '75- Karen Black (the F/A, Nancy)'s hair is gently blowing in the breeze on the flight deck, even when there's a big gaping hole to her right.

                          The plane in "Nowhere To Land" is the same one as in "Executive Decision", and on its takeoff from SYD, you can clearly see the section the bomb "blew out" in E.D. painted on.

                          Several scenes from the trailer for Exec. Decision didn't make the movie.

                            Die Hard 2. The shots are a Lockheed L1011 outside but the interior is a 747 as there is manual doors not electronic. But when they land they open the doors and they are Electric, Wierd

                              The footage from Turbulence is the Identical footage for Airport. Only the script has been changed.

                              which goes to show how the footage can make it mean whatever you want it to.

                              case in point, at the end of the movie when the 2 lovers are walking away arm in arm. 1 movie makes it like theya re deeply in love, the other movie makes the footage appear as theya re injured. Says a lot for love doesn't it
