Nang Tao Airport was an airport in Shanghai. Both Lao Che Air Freight and Pan American Airways used the airfield.

HistoryEdit

In 1935, Indiana Jones, Willie Scott, and Short Round fled to Nang Tao Airport following the brawl at Club Obi Wan, catching a flight originally intended for Jones, Round, and Wu Han. As they were hurried to their plane by their contact, Art Weber, they did not notice that the Ford Tri-Motor Airplane that they were boarding was owned by Lao Che, through his Lao Che Air Freight company. As Jones gloated to the gangster, who had arrived too late to stop the plane, Lao Che had the last laugh as the plane's pilot and co-pilot caught their boss' attention.

Behind the scenesEdit

The scenes at the airport in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom were filmed at a closed military base, Hamilton Air Force Base in Marin County, California. In the background, George Lucas and Steven Spielberg make cameo appearances handling luggage.

The "Nang Toa" crate.

Nang Tao Airport is referenced on a crate in line at Disneyland's Indiana Jones Adventure: Temple of the Forbidden Eye ride though it is misspelled as Nang Toa.

The Chinese name for the airport can be seen on the sign at the entrance. However, the transliteration is very loose, and would more accurately be written as Nan Po Airport.

Nang Tao Airport is a fictional name but it is re-used in the Doctor Who novel The Shadow of Weng-Chiang.[1]
