    Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.

    "Fate is the Hunter" 1964 screenshot. Based on the bestselling 1961 book by Ernst Gann, the author was so disappointed with the result that he asked to have his name removed from the credits. The "Consolidated Airways" jet aircraft used in the filming was one of two fabricated from DC-7(B) donors, the second was used to create the crash scene (on the beach). The wings were reportedly removed and reversed, a Boeing 707 nose cone along with "supersonic spike" were also added in order to achieve the appearance of a modern jet airliner. Modifications to the rear section of the aircraft included the addition of two nacelles to accommodate the simulated jet engines. A rear-mounted Boeing 707 spike-styled HF antenna isolator, and antenna were also added to the tail section. An area of the Twentieth Century Fox back lot was converted into the tarmac, taxiway, and runway seen in the film. Because of the fear of litigation, it was reported that no airframe manufacturer or airline was willing to cooperate in the production of the film, making these steps necessary.

    That must of been a big boost and learning curve for the auto industry. Northrop carried it quit a bit further but to no avail.
    At least to the auto industry.
