Trivia This was the only movie of the "Airport" film franchise that did not have a real-life disaster happen to an aircraft used in the filming. The 707 used in filming Airport (1970) crashed in Brazil in 1989. The Beachcraft Baron that played the one that collided with the 747 in Airport 1975 (1974) collided with another private prop plane mid-air in 1989. The Concorde used in The Concorde...Airport '79 (1979) crashed outside of Paris in 2000, killing all one hundred seven people on-board and four people on the ground, leading to the end of the Concorde program.

Goofs During take off, a large number of loose items (including a huge fruit buffet set up on a table) are laying about in a way that would be totally unacceptable for any airline. Even after the ditching/crash, the bowl of grapes is sitting proudly and undisturbed on its table! See more »
