Did I say I was done with my Green Lantern set reports? Guess again...


Day 6

I was tipped off that Warner Bros had rented out a few hangers at Lakefront Airport located in northern New Orleans, LA.

Within one of the hangers, the crew had just finished painting a fighter jet that will be used for a pivotal scene in Martin Campbell's space epic Green Lantern. The 'experimental' YF-32 jet will be piloted by our hero's father, Martin Jordan (portrayed by Jon Tenney in the film), and will be the cause of his demise.

It appears to be based off of the X-35 Joint Strike Fighter, and is roughly 2/3 scale. The mock air traffic control tower that is being used on the Green Lantern at Second Line Stages is a replica of the one used at Lakefront Airport; which has been chosen as the backdrop for the fictitious Ferris Air.

Here are a few images of the aircraft. The Ferris Aircraft logo was just recently added:

ReillyParker - 4/19/2010, 12:51 AM
That looks so effing hot. I can't wait for this movie to come out. So when are you gonna get to why Campbell supposedly hates you?

@InstigatorGIRL LoL @ nerdgasmic I think I'm gonna start using that word. Agree with ya wholeheartedly.
ReillyParker - 4/19/2010, 12:54 AM
my mistake... will edit, um sorry.
InstigatorGIRL - 4/19/2010, 12:59 AM
@Poni yeah I mean I just recently got into GL within the last year but now I am totally digging the stories and the characters.
@Reilly You should use it. Spread the word of nerdgasms!

ReillyParker - 4/19/2010, 1:21 AM
@Poni LoL I thought there was a bigger story behind it

@Igirl I most certainly will. NERDGASMS GLORE!!!

I'm sure that the Lakefront Aiport will be Ferris Air.

If you checked out the leaked construction of the 'Air tower' at Second Lines Stages, it matches the tower of the Lakefront airport.

@Poni: Great job, mate! You've really outdone yourself with all of this exclusive Green Lantern material!
InstigatorGIRL - 4/19/2010, 1:54 AM
HAHA!@Poni that pic cracks me up dude. Wow so 25 articles; so there's more to come or that's how many you've posted?
Tobuttica - 4/19/2010, 2:00 AM
That's frickin' crazy that you are getting stuff like this on film. Not even the big name photogs and news people are getting this stuff. Very amazing. You sir have some serious balls and an eye for cool stuff to whet our appetites for this movie.
THEMRTERRIFIC - 4/19/2010, 3:07 AM
WOW!! Great Find!
ktrackler - 4/19/2010, 3:39 AM
Poni I can't believe Campbell hasn't secretly had you killed yet. Keep up the great work, and just remember if you get caught and Campbell has full body cavity search performed on you go to your "Happy Place".
InTylerWeTrust - 4/19/2010, 4:39 AM
Shweet :)
OverCross - 4/19/2010, 5:12 AM
Poni better be careful

If he finds the suit.....we may never hear from him again



But I bet the set people are nice and let him take a look
chucksome12391 - 4/19/2010, 5:25 AM
Nice find, loving all the GL news. Makes me think that DC has a chance of having more franchises a head. I mean look at Warner bros all the DC movies are Superman/Batman and or spin offs of them. I hope GL and Jonah Hex do well so they can have the sense that they can not just relay on Superman/batman films. I say wait on Superman and get more characters on the big screen.
MrSuperheromoviefan - 4/19/2010, 5:55 AM
Man, good find!
EditNinja - 4/19/2010, 6:15 AM
MultiPurposePoni is incredible! The scoops he's bringin' us! I never expected this much stuff this early.
He must be sleeping with Carol Ferris.
Keep it up!(the scoops, that is)
Awesome.
z3ro - 4/19/2010, 6:16 AM
I'll say it again. poni is the fkn man.
vonstallin - 4/19/2010, 6:45 AM
I wonder if this moview will be portrayed somewhat in the new future.

Since the YF-32 is a true eperimental plane almost ready for production. I guess we can tell this if Hal is a kid or teenager when his dad dies.

If he is then that would put Martin in the 2000 to 2009 range for testing.

Multi, you complete me and the CBM website!
This is wonderful news I really can't wait now!
LEEE777 - 4/19/2010, 7:16 AM
Lol @ MULTI!!! ; D

Luv that pic of ya hahahhahhaha!!!

Cool JET!

Awesome stuff!
superdog - 4/19/2010, 7:44 AM
multi@ good stuff man. really impressed. grif, not so much.
TheQuestion - 4/19/2010, 8:24 AM
Keep up the amazing work, Poni! You're my only source of GL news!
BrotherJohnson - 4/19/2010, 8:31 AM
Any guesses as to when we'll see the first teaser?
RorMachine - 4/19/2010, 8:39 AM
Ah cmon, it wouldn't be the same without Grumpy Grif:)..(Not my name for him!)

Jet looks cool...did they physically remove you from that hanger dude?
peterparker420 - 4/19/2010, 8:48 AM
Now that is AWESOME!! I like that!

ClintEastwood - 4/19/2010, 9:06 AM
Fantastic Find!
darkneo - 4/19/2010, 9:47 AM
Very cool!

A notion though. The designation number for YF-32 is (was) the Boeing introduction to the JSF program. Lockheed now has the contract and this picture is of a YF-35 which seems to be a Ferris streamlined version of it.

Weather this is a full scale prop or not is it really great.
thegreek - 4/19/2010, 9:56 AM
Multi - U are simply the MAN....
Rumblebeast - 4/19/2010, 10:14 AM
@Multi...you are definitely cool for doing all these shots for all the fans....but seriously, just looking out for you bro.....be careful, huh....
jman1977 - 4/19/2010, 10:26 AM
Multi again dude, awesome stuff. What SET WILL YOU INVADE NEXT!?!?
Ranger14 - 4/19/2010, 10:37 AM
I wonder how many set, production and security personnel have lost their jobs due to Multi working his awesome, stealth photo-journalism magic.
ceramyctyle - 4/19/2010, 10:39 AM
@Marvel Rules: It's Hal's father, Martin Jordan, who flies that jet.
rsalas - 4/19/2010, 10:47 AM
Sweet! Thanks MultiPurposePoni for all these set pics. Hopefully once they start filming the next Batman movie I can send in pics as well.
Spock - 4/19/2010, 10:50 AM
Man Mult u are the scooper of the year so far. Looks pretty good. Just remember. OUT OF SIGHT, OUT OF MIND!
SupermanReturns2006 - 4/19/2010, 11:29 AM
This airjet looks cool.. the filming set in New Orleans should film it on the air base.
mwkcope - 4/19/2010, 2:25 PM
Overcross@AMEN.
