British Airways – Manhattan Landing


This commercial was ahead of its time when it first aired in 1983. Borrowing from the sci-fi movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind, it features what appears to be an air traffic control centre guiding an aircraft, callsign “Manhattan”, for approach and landing at Heathrow. Except that it’s not your regular aircraft. It’s actually… Manhattan. You’ll see why.
