Anyone catch what D'Capprio (Or however you spell it) called the runway at Laguardia???? HA! hA! Dope!!!

He was on a plane with Tom Hanks going back to America from France.

I seen that film a year ago but didn't notice - what did he call it ?

Did anyone in the UK see "US Marshalls" on Channel 5 last night ? OH MY GOD, THEY TRASHED A BEAUTIFUL 727..... !

Yea....not a bad film

They actually trashed 2 727.200s, but only their fuselages. They leased one complete aircraft from a US casino owner, bought the 2 fuselages, built a smaller set of one and built a big complete model.

I know!!!! I cringe when they do these things to these beautiful aircraft!!! I watched the bomb testing on a 747 I almost cried!!! Can you believe it?! A grown man crying over a ,, 'thing' ? I know and have known women that wish I would/did show them this kind of emotion!!!!

The runway in the movie! I won't tell you!!!! SOMEONE has to know!!!

HA! HA! I was laughing!!! You know how us aviators can pick apart an airplane movie?!?!

I watched Airport '75 last night!!! It is a great movie. They really did a good job with it. I do laugh a little though at the minimal wind coming through that garage door above the co-pilots seat.

No kidding there! God BLESSED America! Did you read that one of the options for the 727 home is a functional cockpit tied to FS9? Only an extra $11,000. What a bargin! 😂

HA, have you ever seen the "Turbulence" Movies? Those are so STUPID! There's one part in there where the freak that tries to fly it is like, I gotta reduce the power, so he pulls back on the throttle, and what do you hear, the engines roar up nearly full! I almost died. My mom didn't get it, and my dad said it was sad that I pick up on things like that!

Ha Ha ........ How can anyone think it's sad to pick up on detail like that! Actually all of my friends would say the same... They hate flying with me, because when I get to the Airport it's like "Wow look, a BAe 146, look the small one but with four engines!" ....... At this point they yawn and go to the Bar to get away from the Plane Spotter !

I guess birds of a feather really do flock together. My wife hates to watch TV or movies with me. I am always picking out the stupid stuff. She feels that I should open my mind and just "enjoy it." I say, “Never open your mind so far that your brains fall out.” 😛

Just watched airport '75 again. Can't beat it.

D'capprio said, looking out the window of the ircraft- "Look Karl. There is La guardia right there. Runway 44"
