    I thought we could have some fun and try to list how many movies that have an opening scene of an airplane in flight. Two that come to mind are...

    "The Battle of Britain"
    "Where Eagles Dare"

    Any others?

    Didn't the movie "The Chronicles of Narnia (The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe)" start with a night raid of He111s over London?

    More:

    'The Wild Geese' - admittedly its a Concord.

    'The Dawn Patrol' - gotta love Errol Flynn. Just for kicks the first 2 mins - View attachment DawnPatrolStart.wmv .

    'TopGun' - an all time favourite.

    'Flying Leathernecks' - classic John Wayne.

    'The Great Raid" - starts with news reel footage of Pearl Harbour.
