The thing is helicopters are different from airplanes An airplane by it’s nature wants to fly, and if not interfered with too strongly by unusual events or incompetent piloting, it will fly.

Flying through a hurricane is the most fearsome shaking you will ever get. Everything has to be tied down in the airplane. And the IMAX camera has to be rock-steady through all this. We had to design special mounts on the left and right sides of the cabin and in the cockpit to hold the cameras.

On the first ‘Indiana Jones’ movie, I tore an ACL in one of my knees – can’t remember which knee. The scene in which I was fighting the big German mechanic on an airplane called a flying wing, I was run over by the landing gear and injured my knee, but I can’t remember which one it was. Lots of bumps and injuries along the way.

At any time, somebody can blow themselves up and take Americans with them. They can blow up an airplane; they can crash an airplane. That’s something we have to worry about every day – we spend 40 billion dollars yearly on homeland security. That has nothing to do with Crusades or any of that other nonsense.
