Roger Sartet escape from jail with the help of the family Manalese. During his hidden stay, he tells to Vittorio that a incredible jewels exposition will be held soon in Roma. Despite the plans, the rawberry is impossible. So the team thinks to hold-up the jewels during the flight to America.
The aircraft is hijacked and lands on a speedway in the USA. It’s actually a fake “made for movie” company United Overseas Airlines, based on F-BJLA DC-8-33 of UTA-Union de Transports Aériens, which was written-off in 1973, due to sale to a foreign company.
Unusual in the story of cinema, the cockpit is really this of a Douglas DC-8.
Seen too as a toy.
DC-9, Caravelle of Alitalia-Linee Aeree Italiane, four engines 707 or DC-8 on the left.
