What Is Your Favorite Aviation Movie?

I’m not really a movie person, but I do want some recommendations for good aviation movies. So, talk away and let me as well as the IFC know what aviation movies you guys like!

I’ll start us off. My favorite is Airport, from 1970, just a good all around movie. You can find more about it here

Always is a fantastic movie
Air America is funny
Strategic Air command is has awesome scenes, my favorite thing about it is Jimmy Stewart flew all those aircraft in that movie as an Air Force Pilot!

I have to go with the movie Airplane! It has to be the funniest movie I’ve seen to date.

Not a serious movie, but I agree with @Butter_Boi. Airplane! is so funny and I can watch it over and over and never get bored! Easily one of my favorite comedy movies.

And don’t call me Shirley.

Sully. It’s kinda the only real aviation live I’ve seen. It’s so realistic too!

To be honest, my favorite is super generic. Top Gun.

However I also like:

  • Flight
  • Sully
  • Con Air

Sully and top gun. Probably the 2 most common answers you’ll get and also my favourites. Although two of the new movies, being Midway (hasn’t come out yet in aus) and Top Gun Maverick both look pretty good, so those might be my favourites in a year’s time, I don’t know.

Gotta love Sully! But if you want a really unrealistic one, watch Airline Disaster.
