There are a lot of movies that have airplanes or aviation as part of the central plot line. A large number of these movies are war movies about pilots or squadrons. We didn't list all of these, but instead mostly listed movies that weren't about war leaving the air force type movies for another list specifically on war movies. Some of our favorite airplane movies include The Aviator (a great story about Howard Hughes that is extremely well done and has tremendous acting performances by Leonardo DiCaprio, Cat Blanchett, and Alan Alda); Planes, Trains, and Automobiles (very, very funny!); Air Force One (a good Harrison Ford thriller); and The Spirit of St. Louis (classic Jimmy Stewart). The 1970's brought us a number of airport disaster movies and then the follow up Airplane! movies that spoofed the earlier disaster movies.
