If you’re into catastrophes and disasters like me, knowing about them, figuring out what happened and such, then you may also like disaster films.

That’s what makes the write up on the Airport films that cnet just published a must-read article. They discuss not just the films themselves, but who starred in them as well as different bits of trivia.

Yes, it was that Concorde!
