Cadillac Charlie

Tam posted a couple of pictures of a Cadillac Allante and mentions that the body was assembled in Italy and flown by 747 to Detroit for final assembly. Okay, that's weird enough that I go rooting around for pics. Eventually I find this one:

Loading Allantes
on the Allanté History page by John Monzo. He also mentions the movie Terminal Velocity, which came out in 1994, just after Cadillac stopped building the car.

I vaguely remember seeing this movie. It wasn't that great, but this stunt was pretty spectacular. The airplane is a Fairchild C-123 Provider.

I live in Arizona, the landscape looks familiar...but I don't recall this type of event ever happening to me.
