    Funny, just watched the trailer when I was a kid, I always thought of WWII as being fought by a bunch of old guys... lol... now I know why!

    The movie on which "Always" was based. "Always" isn' quite the "aviation" movie it could have been but some good scenes.

    Battle of Britain.............has some of the best flying scenes ever recorded on film. A great aviation movie.

    "The Blue Max". I remember seeing George Peppard being interviewed about the movie, he said how beautiful he thought the aircraft were. NO CGI HERE!

    "The Great Waldo Pepper" has some flying by Frank Tallman and "The Flight of the Phoenix" has the most dramatic radial startup and Paul Mantz last flight.

    "Thunder Over Reno" the extra feature on how it was made is better than the movie.

    The aerial cinematography that wound up on the cutting room floor is amazing! I really hope that somewhere all of it is still intact! Those guys did some amazing stuff air to air! Who would ever have thought that a shot from the tail of the Super Corsair doing a gear extend could be art! THEY DID!

    As an audience, WE did not give that effort a fair shake! Yes, story line was corny, acting, sometimes, was a bit... Well the actors became friends during the shoots and I hate to critique friends!

    I'd watch it again and again if I could find my copy that I loaned to someone!!!
