The sight of a full size plane on the roof of a building caught our attention as we were driving by. When we stopped we noticed that it was an aircraft museum.
I thought it would be appropriate for today's Friday theme. The original airplane (Airport 1975)movie was a tense thriller but Airplane is known for its use of absurd and fast-paced slapstick comedy, including visual and verbal puns and gags.

Airplane! was a financial success, grossing over US$83 million in North America alone, against a budget of just $3.5 million.The film's creators received the Writers Guild of America Award for Best Adapted Comedy, and nominations for the Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture Musical or Comedy and a BAFTA Award for Best Screenplay.

In the years since its release, Airplane!'s reputation has grown substantially. The film was voted the 10th-funniest American comedy on AFI's 100 Years... 100 Laughs list in 2000, and ranked sixth on Bravo's 100 Funniest Movies. In a 2007 survey by Channel 4 in the United Kingdom, it was judged the second greatest comedy film of all time

Impressive way to attract the attention with an aircraft sitting on the roof.
A perfect image to portray your movie title for the theme this week.

Bonsoir David,

Nice contribution to the theme. Couldn't be more explicite (I hope this word is English). TFS


Hi David,
The aircraft is an eye catching focal point, and the tonal greens quite appealing. Clever composition and a great entry for this weeks theme of movies.
