    great video , really explains why its so enjoyable

    i remeber the first time i fell in love with flight , taking a flight from Chicago to Tokyo the pilots invited all of the kids to see the cockpit on a 747-200

    more gauges i ever imagine, i even kept the certificate after all these years

    Wish I could watch that one again for the first time (and again, and again).

    This one should be coming out this year sometime. Looks like it's gonna be just as good (hopefully).

    A Pilot's Story

    And here's another short clip of highlights from AirVenture 2009 set to music (you pilots out there probably have already seen this, but it's great if you haven't).

    Can anyone please tell me what model is the first twin-engine plane shown? (the silver one in the opening sequence)
    It's beautiful!

    As a Cub pilot and guy that truly loves flying, this movie is my favorite of all-time. The scenery, the pilots, the planes, the stories...there's not a time that goes by when I watch this when I don't blubber like a baby in some scenes. When you truly love something, it's hard not to.

    I was truly born in the wrong generation...the golden days of flying are long past. Those of us that fly the classics need to keep it alive.

    Tho I rarely fly anymore, I ate, drank, and slept flying for several years. My other half took this photo several years ago with a cheap camera, and it still remains one of my favorite photos taken while I was in the left seat.
