The SR-71 movie everyone seems to forget is called Final Approach with Hector Elizando as the Dr. and James B Sikking as the pilot. It was also featured in the movie D.A.R.Y.L. .

Planes in Movies:

Farchild C-119 Flying BoxCar- Flight of the Phoenix(both)

Curtis P-40 WarHawk- Flying Tigers, a total propaganda piece if you knew the real story of the shameful treatment of the pilots and groundcrews of the American Volunteer Group after the US entered WW2. These guys were the first special ops force ever sanctioned by the US govt. in WW2 and didn't get veteran status until Clinton came into office. It is featured in many WW2 movies.

Cessna Twin SkyMaster 0-2 - BAT-21

North American P-51D Mustang- Tuskegee Airman, others

Fairchild-Republic A-10 Warthog - Jarhead

Hollywood has a long love affair with flying and I expect it will go for along time.

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.


They weren't smole jumpers in the movie, they were both pilots. Justa fyi for ya.

Yeah, the poorly (insert film activity) Full Throttle.

The Harrier, in BAe form, first appeared in The Living Daylights, lifting the (supposedly) defecting General Koskov to safety...

Someone mentioned the Flying Tigers, how about the Duke in Flying Leathernecks?

DC3/C47/Dakota (truckloads thereof) - A Bridge Too Far.

Hawker Hurricane, Supermarine Spitfire - Reach for the Sky (the mostly true story of Douglas Bader)

A20 Havoc, B17E-G - The Way to the Stars (Awesome, awesome 50s movie about a bomber field in southern England. Cannot say enough about it!)

The Pan Am Clippers - Raiders of the Lost Ark (also the mocked-up Northrop B49!)

Beoing 707/747

can't remember which but it was in airport.

best lines are:

"The book says that you cant do that"

"Son, the 707 can everything but read."

Corsair: 'Bah Bah Black Sheep'.

T6 Texan/SNJ: Anything with a 'Zero' in it.

The Firefox is the MiG-31.

Pretty Sure that the bomber in Catch-22 is the B-25. Same goes for the flick with Mad Max Gibson as the pilot who went into Suspended Animation after his sweetie died.

The P-40 is the star of either John Wayne's 'Flying Tigers' or for the young and historically gullible, 'Pearl Harbor'.

The 'MiG-28' (which should by rights make it an attack aircraft) is ths F-5E from TGun.

The A-4 also comes out as at least equal to the F-14 in TGun.

The aircraft in 'Broken Arrow' is the B-3 which neither looks nor performs like the Spirit.

The aircraft I most associate with 'Iron Eagle' is the F-16 and the IAI Kfir.

Let us not forget the C-130 and AC-47 from 'The Green Berets'.

And the B-36 from whatever that SAC flick was with errrm, Jimmy Stewart?

There are several 'Stealth' titles which highly everything from Aurora clones to hte F-117 -before- little miss T&A got to play noseart for a day with an F/A-37 Talon. Itself just a tarted up Firefox with switchblade wings.

did anybody notice those planes covered in cloth/tarpaulin (sp) in the Area 51 scenes of Independence Day?
does anyone have an idea what those planes were?

I'm confused! are we looking for movies where planes played an important role or just any movie with an airplane in it?

I kept my list short because I though we were looking for movies where the airplane played a key role in the plot!

B.T.W= Active Stealth is about an F-117

There is also some aerial footage of the B-49 in the original movie of War of the Worlds.

That wasn't a B-49 but a mockup of Horten Brothers design for an intercontinental bomber that was never built. The propeller version of the Northrop Flying Wing was designated the B-35 .
