Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery - Jumbo Jet from the Future
When leaving the MOD freezing chambers, Vanessa informs Austin that his jumbo jet is fueled and ready to go. The next scene shows a view of a psychadelically colored Boeing 747. Question is, how did Austin Powers, frozen in 1967, have a personal jet that wasn't available until 1969?

1. The first 747, a -143 series, was rolled off the Renton production line at the Seattle Boeing Plant on November 15, 1969, with first service entry (A Pan-Am 747-145) in June 1970. 2. The plane in the movie was a 747-238B, the type introduced in 1979. It also has Pratt and Whitney turbofans, the first P&W engine was attached to a 747 in 1979. He also had winglets, a feature never actually attached to a 747 until 1985. 3. The plane in the movie was leased from Qantas Australia, registration VH-EBV, a 747-238B. I know, because I saw it getting repainted for the movie at the QANTAS jet base in Sydney.

If you all paid any attention, Vanessa tells Austin (almost exact words) "Now, we've left your private jet JUST AS YOU LEFT IT". So that rules out that they prepared the jet AFTER he was frozen....and possible he really did receive before anyone else.

I just checked Boeing's website, and this is clearly not a mistake. The first Boeing 747-100 was built in 1966, the same year Austin Powers was cryogenically frozen.

They could have made a deal with him and give him one in (just a guess) 1972.

Has anyone noticed that that jumbo jet is clearly not from the 60s or 70s or even the 80s, it was a modern plane, and they already had a lot of things made for him ready and waiting for when he was unfrozen.
