I am not sure whether you have noticed, but here on the Flight blog we have become a tiny bit excited about the new James Bond film; Quantum of Solace.
First we offered you the entree of pictures from the DC-3 dog fight from the movie, then we salivated your appetite with the Ocean Sky Business jets that will be featured, and now for dessert we have a selection of pictures from Virgin Atlantic and picselect.com, as intriguingly a Virgin Atlantic 747-400 is going to be used in an “emotional scene”.
From the Virgin Atlantic website:
Virgin Atlantic is once again featured in the latest James Bond 007 movie. After two of the airline’s aircraft appeared in the 2006 film Casino Royale, a Boeing 747-400 will carry the British secret agent across the Atlantic in the new film, Quantum of Solace, opening in UK cinemas on 31 October. The 747 is the setting for what Virgin Atlantic describes as a “very emotional scene”. Filmed in a day in January in Virgin Atlantic’s cabin crew training facility Bond sits at the Upper Class cabin’s bar and drinks Vesper cocktails in the presence of the returning character Mathis. Virgin Atlantic was later used by the Bond film company Eon Productions to fly the movie’s cast, crew and equipment to Panama
