Universal Studio Tour: War of the Worlds Plane Crash

The plane crash set from the 2005 film War of the Worlds. A commercial 747 aircraft was bought by the production and then chopped into pieces and transported to Universal, where the full set has been left fully dressed as it was during filming. The plane cost $60,000 (quite reasonable for a decommissioned 747) but the real costs were in the transportation to Universal Studios, which used flatbed trucks, a police escort, and a helicopter, and totaled $20,000.
