National Air & Space Museum curator Dom Pisano put together a list of his top ten American aviation films for NASM's "AirSpace" blog published today. Take a look at the list here: http://blog.nasm.si.edu/2012/03/28/t...yncratic-list/
Notwithstanding his qualifications that the films be American, what are your "top ten" aviation/aerospace films?
While it's very hard for me to nail down just ten, here are some of mine, in no particular order:
- The Great Waldo Pepper
- Porco Rosso (animated is allowed for this thread)
- The Battle of Britain
- Dark Blue World
- Those Magnificent Men and Their Flying Machines
- Twelve O'Clock High
- Fate is the Hunter
- The Hunters
- The Rocketeer
- Catch 22
- The Right Stuff
- Apollo 13
Okay, so a few more than ten...
