• The trick with an extreme landing at the "Unbelievable Adventures of Italians in Russia"
According to film director Eldar Ryazanov, the film "Unbelievable Adventures of Italians in Russia" there is no combination of the frame - all the tricks were "clean". To the spectator does not arise and the slightest reason to say: "It's a scam, then we were deceived, that's all - machinery movie!" - so decided to creators. And the most difficult stunt aircraft was landing on the highway. In the world cinema still has not been such a frame made of real, not through trick photography.
The fact is that when a jetliner sits on the runway of the airport, the force of impact is such that the thickness of the concrete or asphalt should be at least 70-80 centimeters. Roads coated with such deep not exist. In addition to strategic secret. To the course it was closed, from the civil no freeway to multi-ton landing of Tu-134 was not suitable.
Having considered all options, the makers have decided to "make up" for the highway strip airfield. With runway tracks removed markings, headlights and other aircraft designations. Painters drew on concrete white line, which is usually painted on the highway.
along the strip planted trees, set the traffic lights, kiosks, a barrel of kvas, and pointer "Moscow - 140 km." But the main thing - you need to land the plane among the traveling vehicles. What the pilot will be decided on this?
The trick shot at Ulyanovsk airport, at school, civil aviation pilots. Deputy Head of the School of Ivan Taraschan suggested: "Take a letter from the Ministry of Civil Aviation, which will allow me to fly with the instructions, and I will do the trick." But when the filmmakers have given a hint of this in the ministry with them just did not talk. "It is extremely dangerous! It is forbidden "- categorically stated there. No one wanted to risk it. Among the leaders of the civil aviation madman was not found. So Ryazanov and company arrived in Ulyanovsk without the ministry of writing.
Pilot Ivan Taraschan initially refused to comply with the request - to land the plane on the runway on which the cars will go. But somewhere deep down wonderful pilot wanted to make trick, what no one has ever played. Realizing the great responsibility that rests on him, he asked: "Machinery - only cars, for steering wheels - only pilots: in this emergency, it will be easier to navigate quickly and accurately."
to convene all pilots who have personal machines, and "mobilized" to shoot them. Along the edges of the runway toward each other running cars and Taraschan perfectly planted a giant ship. The press is sometimes found that the trick shot six doubles, and all six times Taraschan perfect planting machine. But it is doubtful whether the Italian producers, to save on everything, provided funds for six takeoffs airliner. And the complexity of the danger of the trick eliminates the possibility of a six-fold its repetition.
Then in the film footage followed, as the Tu-134 traveling on the highway, cars scurrying beneath his wings, overtaking, the plane passes through the streets of the town. These passages were recorded on the backup band airfield, where they built houses scenery, set the traffic lights. We hurried along the sidewalks people fleeing children, for kvass there was a line. And in all this kind of street bustle of the aircraft giant looks independent, good-natured and funny giant among Lilliputians - cars and people.
