YouTuber Inkslasher found an important Easter egg in the Season 2 cinematic trailer. He apparently is the first one to dig this out and says so in the video he released to explain the Easter egg.

While it is an interesting bit of hidden intel, it is also very hard to locate in the video. At the beginning of the cinematic trailer, we see a helicopter take a turn over the hilly jungles of Laos.

In that scene, if we look closely at the mountain on the right, there is a crashed airplane lying there. This is the Easter egg that Inkslasher discovered by himself. This crashed airplane is actually reminiscent of a previous Call of Duty title.

In Black Ops 1, there is a mission called ‘Crash Site’. This mission takes place in Laos and Frank Woods and his team, comprising Bowman and Mason, infiltrate a crash site of a Russian airplane. When they enter the aircraft, they find no evidence of Nova 6, but a lot of American weapons. The plane then breaks down and the nose of the aircraft separates from the body.

If one looks closely at the picture above, the nose of the crashed aircraft is also separate in the trailer. In Black Ops 1, this particular mission was one of the most thrilling ones. It is on this mission that Frank Woods loses one of his closest friends, Bowman.

Therefore, it stands confirmed that Treyarch has tied Black Ops 1 directly with Black Ops Cold War. It was already known previously that BOCW is a direct sequel to Black Ops 1 and this further ignites the interest of all the fans of the Black Ops franchise. We expect to see more Easter eggs like this one in the months ahead.
