Casino Royale crew spooked by `haunted plane` during filming

16-Aug-2006 • Casino Royale

Jittery crew on the new James Bond film have refused to get on a stunt jumbo jet — because it’s haunted - reports The Sun.

Scared Casino Royale workers fear the 747 is protected by the spirit of a passenger who died from a heart attack on board.

They say the lights and warning systems have come on during filming — even though the jet has no power.

Crew also claim to have seen the woman’s ghost gliding up and down the aisles of the 30-year-old plane.

One set worker said: “We were asked to stay on it overnight for one scene, but several of the crew refused.

“Some won’t get on board at all because of the ghost. It’s been a real problem.” The de-commissioned £2million former South African Airways jumbo will appear in several scenes.

In one, 007 Daniel Craig, 38, tries to stop a villain ramming it.

The plane is kept at Dunsfold Aerodrome at Cranleigh, Surrey. Spokesman David McAllister said: “I cannot discuss the film but I am aware of the plane being haunted. Everyone knows the story.”
