Air Force One - Gun Shots
In the movie where the terrorists are taking over the plane and they are shooting it out with the secret service, there are a lot of missed shots fired. I collect guns, and I know that those guns that they are using will go through an airplane like its not even there, and at that altitude the plane would have depreasurized and imploded. Great realism guys.

Boeing makes the Air Force One and it is made to withstand heavy fire without damage. It is like an armored car pretty much. The bullets would not easily penetrate through the airplane skin.

Did you remember the part earlier in the movie where the PR lady told the terrorists that the plane could stop any gunfire? It may not be realistic, but they do explain it.

If you collect guns you should know about soft bullets, the same kind of bullets that air marshals on El Al flights from Isreal use on airplanes to kill terrorist trying to hijack or destroy the planes their on.

First of all, Air Force One is bulletproof. Second of all, the plain wouldn't implode, it would depreasurize. And Melany Mitchel even says that the plane is bulletproof when she is giving a tour to the terrorists.

Explosive decompression is something that happens when the airframe itself fails, not when a window or two pops. Yes, the cabin will depressurize quickly with a window out, but the plane will not "implode". Several years ago, an Aloha Airlines 737 lost about 30 *feet* of it's passenger compartment roof. Now *that* is an explosive decompression, and thanks to the fine people in Renton, Washington (home of the 737), it landed safely.

SOFT BULLETS. Some one else said the same thing in here already. Soft bullets are used by federal and police agencies world wide. They disintegrate when they strike a solid object but have more than enough force to penetrat flesh. During a hostage stand off, a soft bullet was used by a sniper to shoot the hand gun out of the perp. This was so the bullet could not ricochet into the perp or any bystanders.

On "Mythbusters" they replicated this Myth. A bullet hole cannot cause an explosion, even at high altitudes. You used the word implosion, which is the contrary. Implosion occurs when this 'explosion' happens under water or under pressure, such as a submarine.

I agree with the previous comments. Also though, the plane would not implode due to a loss of pressure. To implode, the outside pressure musty be greater than the pressure inside the plane, which of course it isn't at 30k - 40k feet.
