Shots at Honolulu surrounded by JAL / United Douglas DC-8 and Pan American Boeing 707 in the far background.
still don't understand why 707's link functionning correctly and DC-8' link NOT ?!Sixcyl 03:11, 16 March 2014 (MDT)
- Both work fine now. If it could be interesting to identify shapes in the far background, putting links to categories seems inadequate : a category lists the movies where we can see an aircraft even during a very short time; but where is the interest to list only guessed shapes ?

These are not guessed shapes but actual 707 and DC-8. So it's not uninteresting.Sixcyl 01:59, 13 April 2014 (MDT)
- I'm pretty sure that most of the people would be in pain to make the difference between the two types and the two airlines (considering the small size of the picture) ! We can say it (it's like playing to Where's Wally?) but to put a link... For a start from the category, it's overstressing it for so few ! (my two pence, no more!). LVCDC 09:59, 13 April 2014 (MDT)
Westland or Sud-Aviation?
We identify the Gazelle N341AH as being of Sud-Aviation make everywhere else on the site. Rotorspot lists two Gazelles by that registration - one Westland 341B AH.1, the other Sud-Aviation 341G. How do we tell which is which? I'm banking on it being the same helicopter in each movie (The Gauntlet, Flood! and The Cat from Outer Space and The Bionic Woman) but how do we decide which N341AH it is? For now I'm reverting it back to being Sud-Aviation to match the other movies' pages. Kooshmeister 16:42, 12 April 2014 (MDT)
I must apologize Kooshmeister, you're right as you've already pointed out on The Gauntlet comments page. There are 2 gazelles from different era wearing the same registrations (that's a problem with US registry which can use same registration for different aircraft.... Germans do the same as well). Built in 1984, the Westland Gazelle AH.1 c/n 1028 can't match indeed!. So it's c/n 1032 built in 1972 in France. The brand Sud Aviation was probably still used though the company was merged with Nord Aviation and SEREB in SNIAS (Sté Nationale des Industries AeroSpatiales) in 1970, renamed Aerospatiale in 1978.Sixcyl 03:06, 13 April 2014 (MDT)
The Bell 47J was changed to AS 341 Gazelle but both are not satisfactory : they didn't meet the upper glasses or the lack of fenestron. Bell 206 could be surprising but the shadow displays how the nose's shape is not a single curve but really this of the Bell 206. Look at a three view plan to compare. LVCDC 16:32, 13 April 2014 (MDT)
If it's not a Gazelle, it's certainly not a Bell 206. I'll come back later on it. Return to Unidentified in the menawhile.Sixcyl 01:39, 14 April 2014 (MDT)
You're right ! Bell 214 will suit better.
(BTW, thanks for the help -titles, captions, ...- as I'm very busy now. All screenshots of different aircraft/helicopter put on IMCDB by Night Cub uploaded). LVCDC 12:40, 14 April 2014 (MDT)
- Anybody to confirm my hypothesis about the Bell 214 ?
- And do we still need the Template banner ? LVCDC 19:10, 26 April 2014 (MDT)
