The fun starts at 1'49"

Even more fun in the sidebar. Apparently Jordan Carver paid WGN a visit. I don't care if they're fake. I'd kill you all for a night with her. Nothing personal, of course

ChrisDe: About 10 years ago or so, I was in New York when they were filming an action move. Some kind of Bruce Willis feature. Anyway, they crashed a couple of planes into the World Trade Center. It was all very realistic, had I not known what was going on, I would have been freaking out.


Too soon.

dickfreckle: HotWingAgenda: dickfreckle: I love the whole, "They [filmmakers] might want to tell the news folks before they do this."

What? How about you not jump to conclusions in a race for the story? The cops obviously knew about it because you need a permit for stuff like that. The only fail here is you.

TFA says they asked both the cops and the FAA, and no one knew or would tell them what was going on. The cops were actually checking it out as a potential crash themselves at the time.

Ah, sorry. I just watched the video but not read TFA.

 

And so ye 'ever enshrined shall be.

I wonder if they have any tape of the newsflash when those two guys from Joliet drove through the Dixie Square Mall and ran over those muppets
