A life raft bag used in the production of the Robert Zemeckis survival film Cast Away. Stranded after a plane crash in the Pacific ocean, systems analyst Chuck Noland (Tom Hanks) is left on a desert island with no hope of rescue. The film charts his struggles for survival, with his isolation and maintaining his own sanity so far from home.
This life raft bag and others like it were used by Chuck and the crew of the FedEx aircraft as it goes down in the heavy Pacific storm. The bag is made of rubber with metal and plastic dress-up components and fitted with nylon carry handles. The case is covered in instructions for its proper use in the event of a plane crash. A red tab marked “Lanyard Pull Handle” is situated at the end of the bag with press studs running all around the edges and is manufactured by EAM, makers of real aircraft emergency equipment. With some signs of light production use, the bag is in good condition and measures approximately 27.5″ x 8″ x 10″ (70cm x 20cm x 25cm).
This item comes with a Hero Prop Certificate of Authenticity.
