Final destination trilogy - Opening disasters
UPDATE - I've uploaded an updated version of this video in HD including the opening disaster of the last Final Destination (4) and now also 5. http //www.youtube.com/watch?v=c52NKvR1O18 The opening tragedies of the Final destination trilogy. Flight 180 (2000) Volée Air Flight 180 is the fictional flight route designator for the flight featured at the beginning of the film; most of the flight and subsequent crash was based on the real life crash of TWA Flight 800. It is assumed that the flight routinely flies from John F. Kennedy International Airport near New York City to Charles de Gaulle International Airport in Paris, France. On the night of the crash, Flight 180 is being operated by a Boeing 747-200 aircraft when it explodes on a 9 25 PM take-off just off Queens and burns up in the Atlantic Ocean on May 13, 2000, with the loss of 287 lives. Among the passengers are 39 high school students from Mt. Abraham High School and their chaperons. Several days later, the National Transportation Safety Board rules that metal fatigue had deteriorated silicon insulation on an electrical connector to the plane's scavenge pump, sparking electrical wires in a fluid line. This ignited a fuel tank in the fuselage and caused the explosion. Route 23 Pileup (2003) The second film begins on the one-year anniversary of the Flight 180 explosion, on Route 23. A log truck's chain supports break off and the logs crash into the cars behind, killing 26 people in the ensuing chaos. But Kimberly Corman (A. J. Cook) had a vision that allowed her to stop several people from gaining access to the highway. The pile-up happens but Kimberly's friends Shaina, Frankie and Dano are killed when a truck carrying cars drives off the roadway and smashes into their car, killing them instantly and nearly killing Kimberly. Devil's Flight (2006) The third film begins long after Flight 180 on a roller-coaster called Devil's Flight. The roller-coaster breaks down, and when Frankie Cheeks (Sam Easton) drops a camera, the carts derail, plus the hydraulics rupture and the track is partially broken further on. However, Wendy Christensen (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) foresees this, and gets the people off the ride. Note Although Frankie gets off the ride, the ride still derails due to the breakage. Frankie would have caused the accident due to his video camera falling onto the track.
