    By daniel on 2002-05-06

    For security reasons we couldn't report this news last week, however, thanks to our source 'Little Dog' we can now reveal what the First Unit were doing last week.

    Starting on Monday the First Unit were filming scenes at Kent International Airport, which is in Manston in the United Kingdom. While Manston features one of the largest run-ways in the UK, 2752 metres long and 61 metres wide, Location Manager Simon Marsden chose the location for other reasons. In Die Another Day the airport will feature as a location in Spoiler Warning (Highlight To Read) North Korea.

    Filming at Manston took place at the airport during the night time from Monday to Thursday. We will have more details on what was filmed during this time in a future spy report. However, at this stage I will say that the filming did revolve around an Spoiler Warning (Highlight To Read) Antonov aircraft.

    On Friday the first unit returned to Pinewood Studio's to film various scenes throughout the Ice Palace. While they have moved away from the main rooms of the Ice Palace, which we have seen several pictures of to date, the crew were filming scenes within the Biodomes that have been built at Pinewood.

    That is all we can reveal for now, but there are plenty more details and I'll be back with them later.

    Until then you can discuss this news in this thread of the Die Another Day Forums. See you there!

    And finally, a big thanks to 'Little Dog' for passing on these details.
