Exxon Valdez Model – from movie Waterworld

Another remarkable “faux bateau” site is the model of the oil tanker Exxon Valdez, which rests amongst the scrap of the airplane graveyard in Mojave, California. It is left over from a major land-locked boat movie location, used for the all-wet, $120 million-plus epic “Waterworld”, released in 1996, which until “Titanic”, was the most expensive movie ever made. The Mojave Airport location is a desert site two hours north of Los Angeles, where many of the scenes featuring the supertanker were shot, including the fiery sinking of the ship.
