    There is something bugging me about this movie. Were there ever planes as large as the one in this picture? The passenger space is so wide and I have never seen a plane with an upstairs passenger area. Is the model of the plane used just made up?

    Wow. I guess their are (or were) planes that size. I've never seen one at an airport so I figured the movie just made it up. It would be cool to ride in one of them.

    Wasn't Airport '77 about the Concord? That is one big plane, too.

    And George Kennedy in a serious role? Bwahahahaha...

    Airport '79 was the one that took place above the famed Concorde line.

    It is also the only one in the series where the plane doesn't crash, it just narrowly avoids things hitting it...


    Easily the most boring one out of the series...

    While on the subject of airplane movies...have you ever scene the telefilm "Ghost Flight of ____" (I can't recall the number of the flight...sorry...)

    Anyway it is a supposed true story of a flight that went down in the Everglades...

    In it, most of the people are saved, but they decide to reuse bits and pieces of the plane in other planes and then those planes are haunted by the captain...in the film the captain is played by Ernest Borgnine....


    That is the creepiest part!
