Swordfish (2001, John Travolta, Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry)


Flashy action thriller includes a sequence in which a Flyer D902 transit bus loaded with 30 people is lifted by Sikorsky Skycrane helicopter onto the roof of a skyscraper. Colin Davidson observes"The 'Making Of -' segment on the DVD reveals that in reality, there were only dummies aboard during flming of the actual Skycrane air-lift sequence, with scenes inside the bus 'in flight' being done in a studio with sophisticated camera technology and a bus mounted on a large rig, akin to the flight simulator platforms used in the aviation industry, that could jostle things around in dramatic fashion." Fleet number 9260 is visible. It's reportedly ex San Francisco Muni.
