N324F was the aircraft that played Trans Global Flight 2. Leased from Flying Tiger.
You can also ask questions here too. Here's one I've had. Supposedly, the aircraft that stood in for Columbia 409 in Airport 1975 was from AA. Did the production company leave the interior of the AA 747 as is, or did they change it round a bit.

Did they repaint it in LHs livery or has LH operated that frame?

That's incorrect, the aircraft was ex Eastern N330EA, never operated by LTU, later operated by Faucett and APA, I dispatched the aircraft for some of the inflight scenes over the Florida Keys.
N324F the aircraft used in Airport, spent many years flying for Aer Lingus as EI-ASO "St Canice", before being w/o as PT-TCS on approach to GRU in 1989 at the young age of 22.
