Brief Synopsis:
Airplane! Long Haul Edition integrates all the deleted and extended scenes from the TV Cut, using a 16mm scan of an original print of the rare cut.

Eight new and extended scenes have been restored and reintegrated into the film, adding three minutes of new gags, jokes and laughs.
Intention:
Upon finding that williarob had gotten ahold of an original print of the film, and that there were a few deleted scenes included, I wanted to make a longer cut of the film because why not? It's interesting to say the least, a few things here and there.
Additional Notes:
Since the new material is from a 16mm scan, it's not the best and doesn't match up to the Blu-Ray too well, but I've done a lot of work to make it look better in After Effects.

Such a blast to see jokes that I wasn't sure I didn't hallucinate watching the movie on TBS in the 90s restored, after my hopes of an official release of those scenes were constantly dashed.

Now everyone can enjoy the oodles of overwrought melodrama with the "adult kids," the water cooler scene and, of course, "Hi, Jack!"

This is the only way I'll watch this classic farce going forward. It's an entirely improved Airplane!... altogether!

(Everybody: "It's an entirely improved Airplane!")
