Just for fun, I thought find out peoples suggestions for the greatest Flying movies of all time.
(Flying movies involving planes with guns that is, thankfully discounting AirplaneII and unfortunately Those Magnificent Men in their Flying Machines)
I haven't put my favourites(I'm sure someone else will) but I've got two suggestions both from WWI -
The Dawn Patrol(1938) Errol Flynn struggles against authority as a maverick RFC pilot and then is cursed to become the authority figure he despises. More Info Here...
The Blue Max(1966) George Peppard as the lowly yet ambitious pilot questing for success and recognition in the hothouse of the German air 'Circuses' over the Western Front.More Info Here...
