Worth the watch! Nice driving through the boneyard. Wouldn't do that in Aus, too many OH&S nuts around!

Wendover Airport was involved in Conair but can't see the boneyard there in Google Maps, so not sure where it is exactly. It could be in the youtube video however their runway looks a lot bigger in the movie.


The areas used in filming are Ogden Airport where the exchange of prisoners is seen. Wendover Airport is used in the flying scenes and taxi scenes for the aircraft which is now used as an attraction to visitors. It is used as the stand in for the fictional Lerner Airfield even the old swimming pool in the base where Garland Greene is seen talking with a girl and the boneyard scenes were filmed in one area of it. Most of the interiors of the plane were filmed in a soundstage.
