Flightplan picture

Easter egg: I found this on the full screen DVD. When you're at the main menu, keep pressing your left arrow button until the leftmost screen (located on the back of the seats) lights up. I'm not quite sure exactly what it leads you to, but it appears to be a 3-D model of the plane. I had to press fastforward to get through it, because it does take a little while. It starts off in English, then cycles to what I believe is German.
