Die Hard and Lethal Weapon Filmed Here
Our Private Tour Guests Love to See Movie Locations
Like an establishing shot in a movie our helicopter tour of Los Angeles gives our guests a chance to see film locations as the filmmakers do. This particular photograph was taken during a flight over Century City and features the Fox Plaza Building (left) and the Intercontinental Hotel. The Fox Plaza building was called the Nakatomi Tower in the first Die Hard film, John McTiernan’s blockbuster that turned Bruce Willis into an action hero. It was a convenient location for the 20th Century Fox production with the studio located just behind the skyscraper (also seen in the photo).
Now the Intercontinental Hotel, the ziggarat like structure next to the Fox Plaza, also a favorite movie and television filming location, was where important scenes in Lethal Weapon 2 were filmed. From this angle you can see the swimming pool where Mel Gibson as detective Martin Riggs falls with the faux room service attendant in one exciting scene. Our helicopter tours can be combined with a ground tour so our guests get a custom tour experience that fully captures everything about Los Angeles.
