Andre The Giant Flying out of Japan in 1980

I don’t think people really understood just how big Andre the Giant was unless they experienced him in person.  I never did unfortunately.  But I think the moment I realized just how much of a “giant” he was, was in the movie The Princess Bride.   It was when Indigo Montoya put his hands in Andre’s hands and you saw just how massive Andre’s hands were.   I mean sure, you look at him in interviews and all that but to see a grown man’s hands get completely swallowed up by his hands was a defining moment of his sheer size.

Back in 1980 the good citizens of Japan got a taste of Andre’s sheer size when he had to take up two of their seats to take a flight home.  Seriously.  Look at this guy.  And then look behind him.  Notice how every row has two people?  Andre can barely fit in a two person set up.  Also, he’s got white Asics sneakers on with Red Trim.  that’s just awesome, period.  You’d think this picture was a photoshop but it’s not.

I’d be curious to know if the plane was slightly leaning in the Giant’s direction for the duration of the flight.  You never know.
