Let’s lighten up over the Christmas holiday and get some good reader participation.
How about submitting as many nominations as you want for the Best Movies involving airliners and/or airports. These can be as recent as Denzel Washington’s “Flight” or as old as…whatever.
These can be dramas such as The High and the Mighty or spoofs such as Airplane. We’re also going to allow Island in the Sky, which although a war movie used DC-3s/C-47s, which of course are airliners. The Terminal is an example of an “airport” movie. The Castaway, while having an airplane a key element and having a major scene at the Memphis Airport, isn’t really a movie that falls into either category.
Make your case in nominating these movies. When it appears nominations have petered off, we’ll compile them into a poll for voting.
We also have a separate poll for the Worst Airplane Movie.
