Hero Boeing 707 filming miniature from Airplane!

Hero Boeing 707 filming miniature from Airplane! – (Paramount, 1980) Surely you can’t be serious! This is the iconic “Trans American” Boeing 707 seen throughout the brilliant and timeless Jim Abrahams and David Zucker comedy responsible for more one-liners than any other film in history. Instead of hearing the hum of jet turbine engines when seen in flight, the audience hears a drone of a piston-driven propeller aircraft—yet another tongue-in-cheek farce. This hero filming miniature is constructed of fiberglass with metal substructure measuring 77 in. long with a full 6-foot wingspan. As the character Johnny states, “Oh, it”s a big pretty white plane with red stripes, curtains in the windows and wheels and it looks like a big Tylenol.” The left side of the plane is the “hero” side that was used in filming, detailed with the red stripes and the “Trans American” logo with moving landing flaps on the wing. The right side is painted white with no detailing. Following the production, Paramount painted over the “TA” logo and stripe on the tail (the letters and stripe are still visible beneath the paint). The wings detach, facilitating shipping and transport. Acquired in the early 1990s from Paramount Pictures. A fantastic and instantly recognizable piece of film history. Perfect for display. In fine condition. Special shipping arrangements will apply. Start Price : 15,000.00 | Estimates : 15,000.00 – 20,000.00
