When Godzilla appeared in Hong Kong suffering from a severe meltdown, he attacked Kai Tak Airport, where numerous Boeing 747s were present. A Cathay Pacific 747-400 in the process of taking off was forced to take evasive maneuvers to avoid hitting Godzilla. Multiple 747s also later appeared in the climactic battle at Haneda Airport, owned by several airlines including Inter Air Lines.
