Airplane 2 is better then Top Gun
Airplane! only at #2? Surely you can’t be serious.
What about Wings?
Please ping me to aviation and aerospace articles. Thank you.
The Blue Max
The Right Stuff
I didn’t make the list. You can go to the site and vote for your own pick.
The original “Flight of the Phoenix” should be in the top 5.
“13 Hours by Air” (1936) is an old favorite.
What about “Spirit of St. Louis” (1957), even though Jimmy Stewart was WAY too old to be playing Lindbergh?
Top Gun with its homosexual overtones is not better than Airplane!
That would be “Shirley you can’t be series”. :-)
The Great Waldo Pepper
The High and the Mighty
Twelve O’Clock High
no “Flight of the Phoenix”?
ESPECIALLY the Blue Max
That was before Peppard became a cartoon character....
They are used to provide lift to the aircraft, but there’s no time to talk about that now.
Guy who made the list must have a drinking problem. :)
All kidding aside, I quote Airplane! more than any other movie I've ever seen. Just thinking of it makes me smile.
