The Marshall movie crews have been out of Huntington for a few weeks.
Right now they're down in Atlanta shooting several scenes: including the plane crash itself. Wes Sarginson, who is a reporter with our sister station WXIA-TV in Atlanta, was on the scene back in 1970. And now: he's on the scene of the filming. He says many of the scenes filmed today were hard to watch.
"For me this story is real," Sarginson said. "I covered the crash for NBC out of the network's Cleveland bureau, and seeing this re-created crash site brings it all back. Warner Bros. has promised to spare all the grizzly scenes; the recovery crews and body bags will not be shown. But you will feel the impact of the crash and witness the burning inferno almost as if you are there."
The actual plane crash filming will take place Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at the Fulton County Airport.
