Movie/TV Show suggestions

Add your suggestion plus any details you know about aircraft in the production.

  • "The Rose" starring Bette Midler as a touring rock star also starred a corporate Vickers Viscount 700 used as her personal transport throughout the movie.
There is something more ... Look at The Rose (not sure the work is complete). LVCDC 16:53, 15 May 2014 (MDT)
  • "Year of Living Dangerously". At the begining and end of the movie, a "Royal Netherlands" Boeing 707-338C can be seen, (the aircraft is actually on lease from the Royal Australian Air Force, who's basic colour scheme it carries). A C-130 Hercules can also be seen in the backround.
  • The 1950s cartoon, "Clutch Cargo" featured an inaccurately drawn Bellanca Airbus. I can't say if it was intentionally drawn that way or not. I tried a few years ago to contact someone who might have known why that plane was chosen for the strip but I was unsuccessful in learning more about its appearance. LeoH
  • The Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle (2000). It shows Bell 47G-4, a biplane which looks like Boeing Stearman Model 75 and a MD-80-like aircraft. --Avenger500 12:14, 30 December 2012 (MST)
Full page at : The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle - LVCDC 19 avril 2013 (updated on August 2014).
  • Entourage (HBO Series), at the end of the Episode8 of Season8, you can see a GIV and a Bombardier Challanger, also in Season4 Episode11 you can see a special B727
  • Our Man In Havana (1959 with Alec Guiness). Includes a shot of the Havana airport, and they board a Cubana Britannia. A KLM DC-6 (as I remember) starts up next to them. Tgibson 17:16, 19 September 2011 (MDT)
Thanks for this. If you want to try and add the page yourself, feel free, otherwise hopefully one of users will. Bthebest - IMPDb Administrator 13:52, 10 October 2011 (MDT)
  • Please add James Bond 007 Casino Royale (1967). There is a PanAm landing after the auction. -- Twitter friend: P1L0T, Derek Schwalenberg
Thanks for the suggestion. Will keep an eye out for it. Bthebest - IMPDb Administrator 15:56, 22 August 2011 (MDT)
This parody movie is not the real Bond's Casino Royale issued in 2006. Unable to find the 1967 one, I've work with fan's movie revue from the web. This page which needs additions ! LVCDC 16:43, 21 June 2014 (MDT)
  • Please add "Criminal Minds."--L.J. Gibbs 17:39, 12 December 2010 (UTC)
Is this the TV series? Bthebest 01:43, 13 December 2010 (UTC)
  • Please add a page for "Memphis Belle" (1990). -- ECBBFan
Thanks for the film request ECBBFan!
Memphis Belle Your turn! -- Tobin Lee 01:55, 17 January 2011 (MST)
  • Add "Boeing Boeing" (1964). It's been a while since I've seen the movie. I remember that there are BAC 1.11's, various large propliners, and, of course, the Boeing 707. The DVD is coming out shortly.
Boeing Boeing with at least the Boeing 707 of Air France (F-BLCA). Others types and airlines on the page ! LVCDC 10:28, 15 August 2014 (MDT)
  • Please add the TV Show Combat Hospital. In the beginning of Episode 1 is a C-17.
  • Don't forget about the awesome flying in Never Cry Wolf an older Disney production.
Never Cry Wolf, a first attempt awaiting better screensots. LVCDC 12 july 2013
  • Things to Come (1936) has a lot of aviation in it. The story is divided into three periods: a contemporary war, an aftermath where civilization has fallen, and a renaissance portraying a rebuilt high-tech society. Most of the aircraft are fictional, but a practical biplane figures prominently in the middle segment, and contemporary aircraft are glimpsed in the first segment. Futuristic scout planes, flying wings, spacecraft, and VTOLs also appear. The film suggests that enlightened aviators can save the world.
Screenshots done but page will be built once the bug with the thumbnails would be fixed. LVCDC 26 august 2013
Page online
  • "The Sum of All Fears" (2002) also has a lot of planes in it. Here is a list of the planes I know for sure to be in it (in no particular order): F-16 Fighting Falcon; E-4B Nightwatch; B-2 Spirit; CH-53 Stallion; A-4 Skyhawk; Tu-22M Backfire. There are probably more aircraft, but those are just the ones I can remember. Bantha121 22:40, 14 December 2012 (MST)
Good idea which makes a first entry for the Backfire. LVCDC 23 april 2013
  • As I'm poor in airliner's recognition, who would check the TV serie "Pan Am" (2011 - 14 x 43 mn) ? Some episode have few shots with airliners, others are more suited for aircraft enthusiasts. LVCDC 21 december 2012
I started watching it but got sidetracked. Hopefully I can get round to it this summer. If you've got the screenshots, feel free to create a page and put them up for others to identify. Bthebest - IMPDb Administrator 06:12, 2 February 2013 (MST)
