Anyone want to own Brian's Toyota Supra from The Fast and the Furious? Well, your chance is upon us.

You'll probably need a good few million for it, though.

I think Ubisoft is taking their loot mechanics a little too far.

Maybe you guys can help me identify a movie that a scene I remember appears in.

It's a mid-air hijacking movie where, in the climax after the hijackers had been taken care of, they were trying to land the passenger jet, but miss the runway and pass too low over a parking garage and a Ford pickup truck gets stuck on the front landing gear. An F-14 pursuing the jet, after being ordered to shoot it down, then uses its cannon to blow the truck off the landing gear so the plane can land.

I thought it was Executive Decision, but it wasn't. I've even scoured the web for the scene, but the only thing that comes up is that old TV ad with the fake video of a passenger plane using a pickup truck as a substitute front landing gear.

That's the one. I want to hopefully get CW Lemoine to do a react video about it for his "Mover Ruins Movies" YouTube series because I'd like to see his reaction to that sequence and I've been searching forever for the movie in question.
