Favourite "Air" Movies

I am trying to compile a list of movies with vintage WWII aircraft:
Here is what I have so far:
1. Battle of Britain
2. Just rented this one "Tuskeegee Airmen" excellent for P-51 fans
3. The Dam Busters
4. 12 Oclock High
5. Season one of "Baa Baa Black Sheeep"

I was thinking of adding:
Tora Tora
Pearl Harbour

Any others I should think of?

Midway Catch 22 Memphis

Midway
Catch 22
Memphis Belle
Mosquito Squadron
633 Squadron
Yank in the RAF
Flying Leathernecks

Is this a good start??

Apparently there are two "Memphis Belle" movies. One is a movie; the other a documentary . . . the first documentary in history to win an Oscar. A civilian cameraman was allowed on board the Memphis Belle to film an actual bombing run.

Here's one that are old films that never made the movies: The Royal Air Force At War: The Unseen Films, 1940-1944 http://www.oldies.com/product-view/16266N.html . . . I'm not sure if you're being selective as to the rating of the movie, or if it just contains aircraft.

And what about Elona Gay.

Bones,
Does it have to focus on the aircraft? Because I always have loved Mrs. Miniver, which has some aircraft, but not a lot.

I've never been to that one, but that one in Seattle was great. I certainly hope that bones has been there and done that.

An air fanatic like bones . . . you bet he'd have been there! I live with such a fanatic, and I am sure that we visited every airport between here and San Diego when we went on holidays several years ago! Eye-wink Laughing out loud If he goes out of town on business, you can be sure that he visits their local Air Museum while he is there.

Sounds familiar. . . hubby used to get "Trade-A-Plane" delivered for years. . . not only that, he didn't just want to buy an airplane, he wanted to build one in our garage! Laughing out loud
