The Langoliers (TV Mini-Series 1995) Poster

(1995 TV Mini-Series)

Trivia

Filmed in and around Bangor International Airport in Maine (Stephen King's hometown).
In the novella, there is no wind, not even a light breeze when they are in Bangor. Since this was virtually impossible to execute for the movie they simply created dialogue to explain that even with a wind down here the clouds are not moving.
The aircraft used in the movie is a Lockheed L-1011-385-1 TriStar (N31018) belonging to the now defunct Trans World Airlines.

Much of the story derives from Stephen King's own fear of flying; King often writes true life-experiences into his novels.
