Christopher Nolan crashes real Boeing 747 into airport building for movie “Tenet”


An ex-Cathay Pacific Boeing 747-200 freighter was used to crash into a set-up airport building in “Tenet“, the 11th movie of Christopher Nolan. The 747 received a fake registration (LN-WTJK) and got rebranded to fictional airline Norskfreight.

Director Christopher Nolan explained it was cheaper to acquire an old jumbo jet and crash it, than using miniatures and computer-generated imagery (CGI) to create the scene.

Storyline: Armed with only one word, Tenet, and fighting for the survival of the entire world, a Protagonist (John David Washington) journeys through a twilight world of international espionage on a mission that will unfold in something beyond real time.



  1. Nolan must be quite lucky to be filming “Tenet” well into the Covid-19 Plandemic season, for otherwise how could he have secured a real Boeing 747 on the cheap for his cinematic endevours.

    Also, I can’t help but suspect that Nolan was using the 747 impact scene to have a light dig at the 9/11 Pentagon crash hoax which puzzlingly failed to leave behind any aircraft debris whatsoever !

  2. Tenet was shot last year. Car chases and blowing up the Kiev opera house were done also in real. Those were actually made in Tallinn (Estonia) like the Oslo scenes.
