Aviation Movie Tirvia Time!

Recommended Posts

Ok, lets start a little fun thread; find that obscure refercene in a motion picture, in can be about general, commerical or military aviation, and let's see who remembers what about what.

 

I"ll start...and most importantly NO CHEATING!!! This means you can't use IMBD or other net movie sources. Just your brains and the DVD/BluRay or (shudder!) VHS

 

The correct answerer should also post another question

 

Have at it folks!

--------------------------------------

 

In the John Wayne classic, "The High and The Mighty", WHAT is the mistake that puts the aircraft in jepordy, and WHO made it??

I like this thread. Unfortunately I don't know the answers to the question so I can't post another question.

it is that - but I don't recall precisely.

 

was it an error in head-wind calculation?

An error in calculation, yes. But not wind.

 

Think 6080 vs 5280

yea, that would do it....

 

Kinda like smacking a satellite into Mars because one team calculated in one measurement and the other team calculated in another.

 

OK, Wrench got it!!
