This sounds pretty cool but with movies these days, the scene is either green screened or they say your in Seattle but the movie might have been filmed in like Canada. So mapping movie scenes would be pretty difficult.

Philipp – your youth is showing. The world had jet fighters in 1968.

The Lockheed P-80 Shooting Star was the first operational jet fighter used by the U.S. Air Force. Concept work on the P-80 began in 1943 and first flew in 1945. In 1968, when Bullit was filmed, the USAF was flying the Northrup F-5A/B Freedom Fighter and the F-5E/F Tiger II.

[put at-character here]Thomas: I think that this was more of a sarcastic comment on the overblown car chases you get in today's action movies like Transformers or Die Hard 4.
