Several prop vehicles used in the
movie were displayed on base. Rolled into Hangar 500 were the Chevrolet
Camaro that changes into the Transformer Bumblebee, a mockup of
Bumblebee himself and semi-truck that morphs into Optimus Prime.
About 200 airmen from Holloman worked off-duty as extras for
“Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” while filming was done at Holloman
and the adjacent White Sands Missile Range.
Also involved the filming were six F-16 Fighting Falcons flying
low-level mock attacks.
