Did You Know?


In the Houston airport scene at 6:36AM, a number of American Airlines DC-10 or MD-11 aircraft are seen on the ramp. American Airlines would have retired all of those aircraft types by 2000, 6 years prior to the election. Additionally, they would not have a large presence at Houston which is primarily a Continental hub nor would they have such long range aircraft servicing it. See more »
