During the 747-through-the-window gag, the plane is originally shown to be in period TWA colors, before it is misdirected. However, when it plows through the window, it has the fictional Trans American colors. Most obviously the red stripes now wrap all the way around the nose and the black anti-glare patch is missing from beneath the cockpit windshield. See more »

One of the best all-time, roll with laughter movies!
If you really need a good laugh out loud movie, to make you feel good, this is one of them! The 1st time we saw this movie, on cable, not long after it came out, we were rolling with laughter! This movie was one of the all-time best, with Lloyd Bridges, and that crazy air traffic controllers' scenes were the funniest. With every line of the movie having a comeback, and another meaning--this movie ranks up there with the pool scene in Caddyshack as one of the best--you're rolling with laughter! With Lloyd Bridges slowly going insane throughout the movie, with an all-star cast including Robert Hayes,very funny, they even had Ethel Merman doing a cameo, (not long before her death), it was hilarious. Even the sequel came out to be as good as the original.
