2. Catch-22 (1970)
Probably one of the weirdest war film you'll ever watch.

" Let me see if I've got this straight: in order to be grounded, I've got to be crazy and I must be crazy to keep flying. But if I ask to be grounded, that means I'm not crazy any more and I have to keep flying. "

" Whoo.. That's some catch, that Catch- 22. "

3. Hell in the Pacific (1968)

This film conveys how magnificent flying was in the first decade of flight. I believe it deserves much more credit than it's received.

I love this film more than what others rate due to the fact that it stars my favorite aircraft, the "Flying Tiger" correctly known as a Curtiss P-40

Nice list! A good one you've missed is 'Memphis Belle' (1990), would definitely recommend that one. 'Flyboys' (2006) is another you could add.
