Y'all remember "Romancing The Stone, Part Two"? There was a F-16 scene where Micheal Douglas, Kathleen Turner and someone else hop in it, start it up and taxi out into the desert? They fire the gun and missles to escape the bad guys!! I need to rent it and watch that again, been twenty years or so.

Romancing the Stone Part 2 was a fun film, definately worth seeing again after 20 years.

So guys I hate to resurrect a dead thread but I found something I couldn't pass up.

Now I'm not in the Air Force (yet) nor am I what you could call an expert in the matters of the F-16 but i think there may be one or two inaccuracies here. but hey at least the CGI is "amazing"

anyways It gave me a good laugh so I hope you guys enjoy it. :lol: :P

Think I am going to have to gauge my eyes out with a knife - are you sure the F-16 close up isnt a plastic Airfix model with no pilot?
And why does her radar keep picking up F-22s!!

oh so many questions........that Im not going to answer

"The Jewell of the Nile" there's a classic. The Arab "F-16" looked like it had the canopy from an F-14 Tomcat to me. :roll:

"Red Dawn" had an F-16 pilot (Powers Booth I believe), had been shot down. At one point you can hear jets and see contrails. Does that count?

Anadolu kartallari is gonna cost 6 million dollars. Pretty high for a nonprofit movie. A special jet and crew with aerial camera systems rented for the movie from US company Wolfe Air Aviation.

CAMERA SYSTEMS:
Vectorvision - film, video and HI-DEF systems with lens ports on fuselage top and bottom, remotely controlled by camera operator inside the airplane
IMAX belly-mount system
POV nose mount/IMAX Super Nose Mount
Underwing remote control digital still camera pods


I think we will see "Les chevaliers du ciel" like movie.

Hopefully an English/dubbed version of "Anadolu Kartallari" will come out on DVD (I might try and rent it anyway just for the flying scenes)! :wink:
