Flightplan (the movie)

Post by Rallye EIBFP » Fri Dec 30, 2005 11:04 am

I went to see the above last night. Highly recommended if you want to get to see the avionics set up on a 747. Im considering writing a review. Watch this space.

Anyone else seen it??

Ive seen it.. what do you mean by "if you want to see the avionics set up in a 747"?

It wasnt a 747 in the movie...or were the avionics actually from a 747?

Very enjoyable movie overall, full of twists and suspense.. which is always good! :D

Was supposed to be a 747, did not look exactly like one however.

Hmm could have been. Looked fairly odd alright. The explosions near the end were WAY too computer animated.

I thought it was a Next Generation 747, but from the front it certainly looked like an A380. The top floor did not run the same distance as the bottom floor though.......thats what lead me to think it was a 747.

very easy to tell the difference in the cockpit.............a380 has joystick yoke controlling the plane and 747 has a larger traditional control colunm! :D :D :D

Then again, it may have been a 172.

I hate when movies have planes in them. They get it wrong 90% of the time.

Saw that movie when I was in a friends place in the UK, just after we came back from Versailles/Le Touquet in the PA28 :) Fell asleep at the end. :P

Very gud film 9/10. I think it was a mix of a 747 and an A380
