Tech Blunder in "Air Force One" Movie (Harrison Ford) - RF Cafe Forums
Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would
be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate
that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views.
It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if
you would like to post something on RF Cafe's
page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all
the responses to the original posts.

Melanie and I were watching Air Force One (Harrison Ford) the other
night and there was a scene where the Prez was in the bowels of the 747 and had to jerry-rig
some wiring to dump fuel. He used a butter knife to easily strip the insulation off
the wires. I know from having built MIL-SPEC and aerospace harnesses that only Teflon
insulation is used in those applications both for ruggedness and for safety (fumes)
reasons. There is no way in Hades that he could have cut through the insulation with
a butter knife. Add that one to the long list of bogus tech stuff in movies.
