Mani: The Canadair CL215 amphibious craft used in the movie was a character unto itself. Knowing that it would get tested beyond its capability, we built a 3D model during production to match the practical. There are 5 plane/parts that act as this one plane in the movie.

1. Real Canadair CL215 for the wide shots of the plane flying and taking off from the water.

2. An amphibious version that cannot fly, it’s a boat that looks like the plane essentially. It has no props. So for all shots of the plane in the water, VFX added the props. This was used for the most part during the river chase sequence.

3. An interior version for interior shots.

4. A version that is the plane broken up and on rails for the plane crash scene in the cave. In the end we only used a handful of shots with this and ended up replacing it completely with the CG model. This was because the practical model just wasn’t moving fast enough on set even with lower frame rates to give the desired feel.

EA-6B Prowler. On en avait parlé ici il y a quelques temps, c'est une marque décorative (comme les têtes de morts sur je ne sais plus quelle escadrille de Tomcat).  ;)

C'est pas plutot utilitaire, pour reconnaitre les avion plus rapidement sur le pont? Accessoirement c'est le symbole d'une source de champ ionisant, et le Prowler est bien une puissante source de champ ionisant avec ses grosse antenne de brouillage de puissance. Sur le nez des E2 y a des symbole du meme genre qui serve a reconnaitre les différents modèle.

en fait ce sigle sur le radôme était destiné aux officier d'appontage, afin de différencier en approche les EA 6B et les A 6E Intruder, les deux appareils ayant des comportement différents et donc nécessitant une approche différente.

La croix sur le nez des E2 C était elle aussi destinée à le différencier à l'appontage des E2B à l'époque
