Chris Klein pilots plane over Austin; talks new film: ‘Game of Aces’

AUSTIN (KXAN/KNVA) — A new film stars an Austinite battling the desert and an unknown enemy.

Chris Klein plays Captain Jackson Cove, a World War I pilot who has been grounded for crashing too many planes.

It’s a low budget action film, which means Klein had to perform his own stunts.

“I get dragged by an airplane. I jump off an airplane,” says Klein. “The only stunt that I didn’t perform myself in this picture was flying an aircraft. They wouldn’t let me fly a plane. They only let licensed pilots fly airplanes.”

Klein chatted with Joe Barlow as they flew above Austin.

Watch the video above to see Chris actually pilot the plane and for more on his Austin connections.
