I think you meant B-29! This is the plane you are talking about:




Am I correct?

It dropped the Atomic Bomb over Heroshima! The B-49 is a different plane entirely!

The SR-71 flick sounds nifty... anyone with a name? And there simply MUST be a 747 movie.

STS Shuttle - James Bond 007: Moonraker

What's the plane in Snakes on a Plane? (Haven't seen it yet)

F117 (cough!) and 747 - Executive Decision

Broken Arrow was actually (wait for it) the B3! go back and look at the model and listen to the dialogue...

B 25 Mitchell - 30 seconds over Tokyo

Grumman Wildcat, Mitsubishi Zero and Douglas Dauntless or Devastator (I think) - Midway

Hey Kaminski, hook me up with a link to that dehavilland movie. I cant find anything about an audrey murphy. Now Audey Murphy was a great western and war flik actor along with a highly decorated war hero. His last movie was A time for dying where he played Jesse James. To hell and back is my favorite he did. Gotta love autobiographies.

IMDB Database

I looked through his filmography and dont find a movie by that name. Did a movie search and came up bupkiss also. I do remember a water bomb movie with liberators where they were skipping barrel bombs into dams. U2U me a link to Always.

Always wouldn't be a Steven Spielberg movie with (from memory) John Goodman and Richard Dreyfuss, about smokejumpers, would it?

He gets called back from his job playing baseball to fly the B-36. Then he checks out in the B-47. Then he goes back to the ball team, as a coach I think. "Strategic Air Command" also with June Allyson.

LMFAO i cant see either Dreyfuss or Goodman being smokejumpers. Not to say there wasnt a movie called that with them in it, just cant see those too wearin the SJ gear and bailin out of a plane into a forest fire.

LOL. D'Oh. I'm sorry. The Late Audrey Hepburn not Murphy, my humble apologies for including anything which might confuse the accuracy of such a serious topic. Great movie to see with a significant other. The part where Richard Dreyfuss meets the Angel "Hap" (Hepburn) after being killed in the plane crash is really well done. She explain's to him he's dead... long story short - the movie "Ghost" but with airplanes including several types of plane. LOL.

There's a great funny part where John Goodman, the range Fire Boss named "Hal The Pal" gets whacked with a full load of the coloured fire retardant while drinking a beer, smokin' a cigar sitting under a lawn umbrella vectoring in the plane by walkie-talkie sitting on the drop range. Hilarious. It was from about '89 or maybe '90.

Concorde-- one of the Airport films (there were a few and i cant remember which
)

I can't recall the aircraft but I do remember a movie called "Those Magnificent Men In Their Flying Machines" about a London to Paris race.... British with Terry Thomas I think. Funny as can be... mid to late '60's? Saw it at a drive-in so a very long time ago. Even worse the theme song is infectious - those who know it will be plagued by that tune in their noggins... viral.

Thanx for listing Fail Safe I'd forgotten about that... Jeez I'm gettin' old. Hank Fonda ordering a nuke strike on New York to compensate the commies for vapourizing Moscow... at the time - I think it was B&W - it was Cold-War scary.

Thanx,

Victor K.
