This was a great old movie about the airmail days (the beginning of the MAJOR airlines, so, moderaters, you can leave it here! LOL) based on an E.K Gann book. It's not out on DVD, but according to TCM, if they get enough votes, it could be released on DVD.
So here it is, vote!

Thanks!
 
This one's better...starring a real pilot (cliff robertson) in real aiplanes (30 series DC-8's) dealing with real issues (A boozer pilot and nosy lead FA)
Technically accurate with great footage of a classic airplane, right down to where he pulls the cap off the aileron trim wheel to look at the porn inside, which any DC-8 driver knows it's stashed in there.

Oh, you guys are WAY off. You just can't beat a delta-winged SST with big ol' honkin' short-ducted high by-pass turbofans, and Mr. Brady as Capt to boot!

Seriously, +1 on The Pilot. And Fred, you know we have to kill you now for revealing the secret of the DC-8:laugh:

Firefox Starring Clint Eastwood. Cheesy, but still entertaining none the less.

Thanks!

Dan, thanks for that. I read the synopsis and I did not recognize it. I soloed in 1951 and I thought I had seen them all. I'd also guess that most of the guy's ( oh yeah, and girls) on this board don't know who Dan Roman is either. <grin>

I voted so I hope it comes out.
