Airplane II: The Sequel (1982)

Airplane II: The Sequel is the 1982 continuation of the 1980 comedy classic Airplane!. The writers and directors of Airplane!, David Zucker, Jim Abrahams and Jerry Zucker, refused to take part, and claim to have never even watched the sequel. The film brings back the two leads from the original, Robert Hays and Julie Hagerty, as well as some supporting actors, like Lloyd Bridges, Peter Graves, Stephen Stucker, Al White (one of the Jive Dudes) and Lee Bryant (the hysterical lady). As in the original film, several actors previously best known for their serious roles were cast including Chuck Connors, Rip Torn, John Vernon, Raymond Burr, and William Shatner. Whereas Airplane! was a spoof of Zero Hour! and the Airport movies, Airplane II was pretty much just recycling the plot of Airplane! (albeit in space). That, the recycling of jokes ("The sun, what is it?!" "A large, fiery ball at the center of our solar system, but that's not important now.") and the lack of participation from the original creators, causes Airplane II to be an afterthought in the minds of many compared to the original.

The following weapons were used in the film Airplane II: The Sequel:


Smith & Wesson Model 13

The porter (Kenneth O'Brien) shoots Jimmy's dog, Scraps, with a Smith & Wesson Model 13 only to reveal a second later that he's using blanks. This is the only gun that fires onscreen in this film. Other airport security carry this as an issued sidearm. Mental patients at the Ronald Reagan Mental Hospital raise Smith & Wesson Model 13s to their heads.

The porter shoots Scraps.
Just kidding, only blanks.
The mental patients raise the revolvers to their heads rather than listening to Ted's story.

Walther P38K

An off-screen actor holds what appears to be a Walther P38K compact pistol to the Moscow anchorman's head. After screen cuts away, a gunshot is heard, but the anchorman shows up alive towards the end.

Walther P38K - 9x19mm
Ah, the Cold War...

Colt New Service

Mrs. Hammon returns in the sequel during the trial scene to give her testimony on the events from the previous film. She flashbacks, and an elderly woman is seen holding a Colt New Service. [NOTE: The weapon is only briefly visible as the flashback ends.]

Colt New Service M1917 - .45 ACP.
The old lady in the line of people to calm down Mrs. Hammon. (NOTE: This is a scene from the first movie, but it appears in a flashback. The actual scene begins to end as this part of the scene appears.)


Unknown M16 variant

In a gag playing off of the recent Iranian hostage crisis, the Iran Air courtesy shuttle drops off blindfolded passengers, along with guards wielding M16s. It's hard to tell which variant they are, however.

M16SP1 - 5.56x45mm NATO
Probably a lot funnier now than it was back then.

Machine Guns

Browning M2 Aircraft

A terrorist carries a Browning M2 Aircraft machine gun through the metal detector, without security noticing. This is most likely a rubber prop, as the actor appears to be carrying it and an ammo belt with ease.

Browning M2 Aircraft, Flexible - .50 BMG
Probably a lot funnier then than it is now.


During Ted's flashback to Macho Grande, a MG15 machine gun is seen. This is just stock footage from Airplane!, which used stock footage from World War II.

"Over Macho Grande?" "No. I don't think I'll ever get over Macho Grande."


Various weapons

A group of terrorists carry various heavy weapons through the airport metal detector while airport security thoroughly check an old lady.
