The new movie Once Upon a Time... In Hollywood has a few scenes in a Pan American Airways aircraft. The movie is set in the late 60s, looking at their fleet from that time, it looks like it was either a Boeing 720B or a Boeing 707-320C.

What type was it? I've tried looking for images of the scene but couldn't find any, so hopefully someone has seen the movie.

    $\begingroup$ How would the voters know that an answer is right without a screenshot? And what if there's more than one plane (if you recognized the easily recognizable 747 mentioned in the earlier comment by@PerlDuck, then possibly there's more than one). $\endgroup$ – ymb1 Aug 22 '19 at 15:58

    $\begingroup$ Yes, a screenshot would help, but he's obviously counting on answers from those who have seen the movie... $\endgroup$ – Michael Hall Aug 22 '19 at 18:50
  • $\begingroup$ I don't know if it's possible but you should include a picture of the aircraft (screenshot of the movies?) $\endgroup$ – Manu H Aug 24 '19 at 8:22

    $\begingroup$ I don't understand the downvotes as no comment seems to justify downvotes (a missing picture hardly justify a downvote). $\endgroup$ – Manu H Sep 2 '19 at 5:13

Presumably a wrong B747.

I haven't seen the movie yet but from all I read about it, it contains an airplane scene in which a wrong airplane is shown for the time the film is set. The Internet Movie Database (IMDB) lists two goofs (movie errors) related to aircraft in that movie:

Pan Am did not introduce the Boeing 747 until January, 1970, over five months after the Tate murders. (source)


When showing the 747 model in at least one of the flight scenes, the wrong model was shown. A model of a 747-800 series (with some of the windows edited out) was used. The 800 series didn't fly until the 2000's. (source)

Sometimes the trivia section also lists some information like The plane at 32:00 was a G5 but as of now there's no such hint for this movie and the B747 is just a guess because it is the only aircraft mentioned in the context of this film.
