BA are to vote to see if they dedicate a whole A380 (the aircraft CraigBond saved in CR) to the national hero that is James Bond 007,ahead of the release of BOND25,and as long as they can pass a 'sexist' guidline and gain approval (pathetic isn't it.)

They will have the MI6 logo on there,along with silhouettes of all the Bonds,their names,and quotes .

The whole aircraft will be painted silver.

See for yourself below,it looks fantastic,and if it goes ahead it will be a massive boost for the film,go for it BA !! :

    I'm all for it. The film and brand needs a good jolt of global publicity after 5 years away.

    It's a pity they have to use a European made jet for it though. Shame the Concorde isn't still around.

    That's incredibly exciting news for this aircraft and Bond obsessive. Fingers crossed they get approval.

    After all, Brussels Airlines got a Tintin plane!

    Good old Rolls Royce. Still keeping the British end up. They have an outstanding reputation in this area.

    True. I regret never being on one. I'm sure it would have been quite an experience.

    I've been on one but not in the air,it was in my early airline days,so that was something at least.
    I would never believe in a million years it would be gone one day thanks to another airlines bad frickin maintenance,back then.

    I'll be thrilled if the vote goes through. Wonder why they didn't use a 747 as that harkens back to Die Another Day and the most we've seen of BA in any Bond film.

    Well the A380 was in CR and its the largest aircraft in their fleet,bigger than a jumbo,they are phasing out the 747's now due to age and fuel costs to run.

    I realized the other day that when the 747 appeared in LALD it was still a very newish plane (first commercial flight in 1970). The A380 had its first commercial flight in 2007, after CR's launch.

    And, technically, the A380 is more British.

    That was the aircraft Bond stopped from blowing up in Miami.

    Well bugger me with a pitchfork !!

    Thanks @patb I never knew that x a bit of an anti-climax now x I might drop CR down to 4th spot for that in my rankings !!
  • edited October 2018 Posts: 3,800
    Considering what was required, there was no point in using an airworthy and very valuable brand new Airbus when you can use a knakered, tarted up 747 plus they could film on a non-operational airfield rather than the headache of an operational airfield/airport with the usual arrivals/departures/security issues etc
    Its available to look around during the yearly Dunsfold airshow and its in pretty poor shape.

    Times have changed; in 1996 I was on a flight from London to New York and they showed Goldeneye. The problem though was that they edited out any scenes that involved an aircraft crashing or in distress.Lol, think about it, there are several in the film. Passengers wondered why they even bothered.

    I can trump that one @talos7 x I was in Phuket airport wz my then girlfriend ,and as I work for airline i got lounge access even though I had free tickets , and what was the film showing on the lounge tv’s in 1991 ? Die Hard 2 !!!!!!!!!!!! Uncut believe me !
    And yes i did see the Windsor Air flight crash as I sipped a whisky (or 3 after that) before boarding our flight to Bangkok.

    Cheers for that, @patb - I keep meaning to make it to one of Dunsfold's events. Now I'll make more effort!
