One Of Those Films
« on: February 28, 2017, 09:18:28 PM »
Just watched "Mach2", a hijack of a Concorde, with Secret Service and Body Guards and distressed women and made in America - yes a disaster of a movie.

Loads of goofs and poor research - due to the "terrorists" having a "nuclear bomb" on board the US Navy are ordered to shoot it down. They managed to catch up with it over France and still went on to try it.

U.S. Secret Service asked French AirTraffic Control "can you speak English", of course the International Aviation language is English.

The cockpit of the Concorde in the film has enough room for a three piece suite, in fact the real cockpit was really cramped and one needed to climb over the seats to get into the pilots position.

After the final desperate landing in France, all the light aircraft on the ground had American registrations.

Classic one for buffs.
I said "no more passwords" and look what happened!
