    Well, last night I rented Towering Inferno and let me say that it is one great film. I didn't see the lasy 40 minutes(fell asleep!) but I won't miss it tonight.

        Trivia on flight 232:

        The main man's driver in the movie was the main man in real life.

        Ex-PG guy.

        Still don't believe anyone survived. Of course I also have a hard time believing those planes can fly, too.

          "Frequency" wasn't too bad. A good mix of chick flick and action. Both genders come out with that sense of satisfaction.

            Wait a minute - WAIT A MINUTE !!!! Are you trying to tell me that there's a better firefighting movie than the 1932 Little Rascal's classic "Hook And Ladder"? I don't think so!

              I have to agree-Towering Inferno-I remember watching it with the whole family! And I also say a great film on the Sioux City crash that was a timeline-the screen was black and every time either the control tower or pilot spoke the time was given in white numbers, it was kinda spooky. They had radio traffic of the pilot,tower and fire crews responding. At the very end they showed the actual approach and crash. Whoa!

                Towering Inferno Has my vote. The fact that it may have had technical inadequacies is irrelevant to me. (backdraft was similar in that respect.) I like the fact that the moral went beyond the typical interpersonal/emotional relationships and got to the base of why most fires happen, lack of fire prevention measures. If they come to us as firefighters to assist in the planning for all buildings then fires would be much less frequent and less devastating. I like a good working fire as much as anyone else, but I sure would like to see sprinklers in ALL buildings residential and commercial.

                Well that is my two bits.

                    I have to add my vote for Towering Inferno. I did like Backdraft, too, but all of them are played up by Hollywood. I really like when the Batt. Chief in Inferno drives over the supply lines! I bet the pump operator would be a little ****ed in real life!

                          Brian Dunlap, I was just wondering if you still know how to get a copy of the Ivestigative Reports show on A&E about the Chicago Fire Dept. I used to have it on tape from when it first aired, but someone accidentally taped over it. It was a good show and wood like to get another copy of it.

                          I would appreciate any help you could give me

                          Thanx.

                            Fireman Frank,

                            I realize my name is not Brian Dunlap but I figured I'd help you out. I have the Chicago FD "In The Heat Of The Blaze" and FDNY "Brothers in Battle" set. You can order either one online or by calling the phone number on the website.

                            The website is:
                            www.aande.com/tv/shows/billkurtis/index.html

                            Then just click on the link that says purchase your own copy of investigative reports. Enjoy!

                              Fiction = Backdraft
                              remember fiction = NOT REAL.
                              Ron Howard did the best he could. A movie may have audio but it is a visual medium {just like tv.}
                              What Backdraft proved was that no mater the make, Scott, MSA, Survive Air . . . No air pack company makes a face peace large enough to cover an actor's ego!

                              The best show:
                              I have said it before and I will repeat it again. BBC's "Man Alive" series, "The Bronx is Burning" episode. Fallow D. Smith, E82 & T31 around the arson ravaged South Bronx.

                              Keep Safe,
                              James

                              PS: if you have a copy of "The Bronx is Burning", e-mail me.
