After watching some of the films listed here umpteen times (nothing wrong wi' that!) I tried to search out other, older films with aircraft in them,
here are a few I found;
Sound Barrier - with the Comet, Swift etc credited as stars in their own right! A proper plane buffs film about the development of early jets starring
Ralph Richardson as a thinly disguised Geoffrey De Havilland
The Man In the Sky - Jack Hawkins as a test pilot who must not land as the aircraft company employees watch nervously.
No Highway - Jimmy Stewart is a Farnborough Boffin with a bee in his bonnet in a movie foreshadowing the Comet disasters in eerie fashion)
Cone of Silence - featuring the Avro Ashton as an airliner with a problem - echoes of the Comet again! An experienced pilot is blamed by the airline
for the crash that kills him to avoid having to make the expensive admission that its new airliner is defective, but his daughter fights to clear his
name. (point of interest, Boeing flat refused to have the 707 feature in this movie for some strange reason
Dawn Patrol - Flynn, Niven and Rathbone in a solid gold first world war classic you MUST watch this movie "Top Gun 1915", lol.
Appointment In London - Dirk Bogarde in a surprisingly realistic depiction of life in Bomber Command made just after the war - another must see.
There are more but these are enough for now. Treat Yourselves
