As I was at my desk working on a project, I had an incredibly mediocre movie with William H. Macy and Donald Southerlin playing on the computer to make background noise.  Towards the end I glanced at the screen, and had to do a double take.  Donald Southerlin was at a desk holding what was obviously a Cox product engine.  I rewound and tried to identify what kind, but it just looked like an ordinary product engine.  Then he rapidly picked up a model to play with it, but I couldn’t identify the plane.  The lighting was way too dark.  All I could tell was that it was blue and had a clear canopy.  Maybe someone here can identify it from the dim screen captures I made.  The first cap vaguely shows the canopy outline, and the second a vague aft of the fuselage.  If anyone can identify this plane, I’m sure Y’all can.

That's about as clear as I can make it.  Considering the colour and the shape of the canopy, I'm guessing Corsair.

And I think the movie is called "Panic", it's about a contract killer (Macy), his dad who runs "the family business" (Sutherland) and a shrink. Never seen it but got curious and looked it up on imdb.com... Reviews vary a lot, some think it's a smart movie, some think it sucks.

Yup, that's the movie. The best part of the movie was the Cox fly-by...

Yes, Panic. I watched it many years ago, probably on HBO during my modeling hiatus. I remember the scene and thought it odd at the time. The whole family had serious problems and the ending is rather violent.

I'm a Sutherland fan, he has quite the bio. Kind of shocked when in Space Cowboys he removed his false teeth and laid them on the table. "Gawd Jerry" Frank (Eastwood) said. Do movie stars admit to that I thought. Smile
