From Airport 1975
This thing will never get off the ground. Never fly. Take my word for it.
Young man, you think this thing will not fly? In 1917 I was flying in something wilder than this. Do you know who the pilot was?
] No. Cecil B. De Mille and we flew from Hollywood nonstop to Pasadena. Yes, and on the way home we did loop the loops so I could see the moon upside down.
