    I remember the Steve Canyon show! I was just a wee 4 year old but was already airplane-nuts so watched every episode I could. I'll have to search the series out. It will be a fun "blast from the...

    Agreed. Actually, this is probably the most compelling reason for doing the CGI the way they do. MOST people won't know the difference anyway.

    I've not yet seen a movie where they came close to representing actual aircraft performance with CGI. It all looks fake. Even the "good" ones aren't that good. I'm just gonna watch the 1976...

    True to a point, but you can't make blanket statements about how to incorporate a major change. The operating limitations have changed over the years, so it depends on when the airworthiness...

    Good that you pointed this out. I'm betting not too many have seen the Christopher Reeves movie. It's not too bad. The DiCaprio flick is OK, but not stellar in my view.

    Dive Bomber is an excellent movie. Not for the story line, but for the great footage of pre-WWII Navy aircraft. Gotta love the TBD Devastators! Don't see those flying around these days!

    It will be approved. Just don't know the details yet. Like any emerging technology, somebody has to take the first steps. It will happen. And when it does, we will know all these answers.
