Drop Zone movie poster.

Movie (1994)

Wesley Snipes (Pete Nessip)
Gary Busey (Ty Moncrief)
Yancy Butler (Jessie Crossman)
Michael Jeter (Earl Leedy)

When his brother is killed whilst escorting a cyber-criminal on a transport flight, Pete Nessip sets out to prove that those responsible are still alive and to stop them completing their master plan. To do this he must team up with a group of skydivers and get on the inside.

Boeing 747-146

Seen transporting Leedy and subsequent 'jailbreak'. Shown in fictional PAC Atlantic Air livery, registration N704CK, c/n 20528/191 of American International Airways (precursor to Kalitta Air. ). Broken up at Opa-Locka Executive Airport in Florida sometime during or after 2006.
Kalitta later operated two more 747s with the N704CK registration that this aircraft should not be confused with; a 747-209F/SCD with c/n 22299/462 that broke up on take-off at Brussels in 2008, and a 747-246F/SCD with c/n 23391/654 that is now in storage.
