The part where Garber sticks his hand in front of the camera and says "No pictures, you plinko bitch" was unscripted. Don Harvey actually improvised this part and it was kept in the scene. See more »
While it is not certain, it is very highly likely that in 1990, the Windsor plane Col. Stuart crashed into the runway would be equipped with a Ground Proximity Warning System (GPWS). If the plane was too close to the ground, the system would loudly sound off "woop, woop. Pull up, pull up." This would serve to notify the crew that there was imminent danger. See more »
[after McClane has failed to prevent the Windsor plane crash triggered by Col. Stuart]
McClane, I know what you must feel.
I wanted to help those people tonight. I was pretty goddamn useless.

this is still a good movie,although it's not as good as the first one.for one thing,it's a lot slower paced and there is less action.John McClane is once again the only person who seems to be standing in the way of terrorists carrying out there plan.this time,it just happens to an airport which is the scene.Bruce Willis is back as McClane,of course,and he actually has some more and funnier lines than in the first.William Sadler plays the main bad guy in this one,and puts in a great performance.i liked his character better than the main villain in the first movie.the biggest problem with this movie,like i mentioned,is the pacing.it is a bit slow especially compared to the first one.but that makes a big difference in how enjoyable it is is.it's just not as fun or thrilling.for me,Die Hard 2 is a 7/10
