With the release of the new A-Team film ‘There Is No Plan B’ (11th June 2010), cheap airfare comparison site Skyscanner reveals some of the destinations that are associated with the legendary ‘soldiers of fortune.’
Los Angeles, USA
Having escaped from a maximum security stockade in 1972, the A-Team took to Los Angeles underground. Many of the missions undertaken by the team in the TV series were set in and around the Californian city.
After seeing Hollywood, A-team fans can jump on one of the many, daily flights from Los Angeles to Vietnam. Here, the original A-Team became ‘soldiers of fortune’; they were part of the United States Special Forces Army and it was during the Vietnam War that the original A-Team was formed. In the new film, the team are portrayed as Gulf War, rather than Vietnam, veterans.
Many of the scenes for the new A-Team movie were filmed in and around Vancouver. Some of the stunt shots were filmed in the downtown area and involved some risky manoeuvres on high-rise roof tops. Nicknamed ‘Hollywood North’, Vancouver has provided the film set to hundreds of movies including The X-Men, Final Destination and Romeo Must Die.
The vast, rugged and desert-like landscape of the Kamloops area attracted the attention of The A-Team film’s director and provides the setting for some of the action undertaken by Hannibal, B.A., Face and Murdock in the new film. This diverse location was also the film set of movies including The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants, Firewall, and 2012, as well as for the television series, The X-Files.
In one of the more bizarre plot lines of the TV series, The A-Team catch flights to Sydney and end up in the outback where Murdock is proclaimed to be a king by an Aboriginal tribe. Along with Australia, the A-Team undertook missions in many unlikely destinations including Monte Carlo, South Africa and East Germany.
