Aviation movies.

Ciao. Did you see "Edge of tomorrow" movie? It is a science fiction movie with Tom Cruise, and it is an interesting and original story, but i started this thread because the main base for the soldiers is London "Heathrow" Airport modified for military purposes. Nice to see the new control tower, the terminal 5, the not used airbridges, part of the runways, aprons and taxiways full of soldiers, kinds of helicopters/space ships, military tents.

Re: Edge of tomorrow

I saw that movie and loved it! But the "Heathrow" in the movie is just good special effects, right?

Re: Edge of tomorrow

Maybe they have used some real images of the airport and then, with the computer, they added the tents and the helicopters.

That's exactly what I was thinking they probably did. It's amazing what can be done with special effects these days .

Re: Edge of tomorrow

Agree, it seems a real situation where an airport is used for a war. It is particularly interesting to see the new control tower surrounded by fighters and soldiers.

Aviation movies.

Ciao to all. In this thread you can write your impressions and comments about the aviation movies.
I created this thread because i watched the great movie Flight (Robert Zemeckis) with Denzel Washington and i was really shocked by the story and by the images of the incident. They are really well done and everything seems real. But i have a question: can an airplane like the CRJ-900 (the airplane seems that) flies in inverted flight without breaking the wings and other parts of the fuselage?

Re: Aviation movies.

Didn't we already have a thread like this a while back?

Anyway, the plane that goes inverted is not a CRJ, it's an MD-80 with winglets.

I don't know i have searched for it but i did not find.
The nose seems a CRJ, but anyway can a passenger airplane makes that kind of maneuvers?

Btw, I just saw another nice airplane movie, Air Force One it's not always very realistic but it surely is an entertaining movie

Re: Aviation movies.

Flying I don't know, but a 707 prototype (B367-80) has made a roll during its tests flights. :

The Concorde made several one during its tests flights too. I think it's theorically possible on every airplanes, but it's just very risky. And I suppose that the computer system prevents from that.
At Boeing for exemple, there is order which is gave to tests pilots before the first flight : "No rolls please". (B777)

Re: Aviation movies.

As an aviation enthusiast I always look at what Hollywood does when airplanes are used in movies and I always need to remind myself, its a MOVIE for entrainment purposes so details and facts or the truth in some cases are usually over looked to keep the movie exciting and us entrained!

Re: Aviation movies.

I remember watching a movie as a kid almost everyday called "cleared to land". No narration but just all types of planes in action. I used to love that movie as a kid!

Yes, it can. Air works the same whether or not you're upside down or right side up. In fact, they even flew the B367-80 (more or less 707 prototype) in a barrel roll IRL. The only problem with inverted flight (ignoring some mechanical effects that are dependent on design) is that if the frame of reference is the plane itself, "up" gets redefined as towards the ground. Gravitational effects would also tend to point "up" as well, but that tends to be negligible in this case.

The plane was supposed to some kind of fictional thing based off the MD-80 or something. The real issue for the wings or fuselage to break would usually be caused by the roll rate being very high or the pilot pulling very hard past the limits of the plane itself.

Also, though this applies to piston powered planes, if the engine is carbureted, the engines will shut off if flown upside down for more than a brief second of time, since the fuel flow to the engine is cut off since fuel wouldn't be able to leave the carburetor.

Hey, model plane manufactures, how about some Braniff PZL 230Fs.
