    Don't you mean good boating scenes?

    Good film. I really liked those old flying boats.

      More good flyiong, of older warbirds, in "Always".
      EXCERPT:
      ...
      Always is a 1989 American romantic comedy-drama film directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Richard Dreyfuss, Holly Hunter, John Goodman, introducing Brad Johnson, and featuring a cameo by Audrey Hepburn that became her final film appearance. It is a remake of the 1943 romantic drama A Guy Named Joe, although Spielberg did not treat the film as a direct scene-by-scene repeat of the earlier World War II melodrama. The main departure in plot is altering the action to that of a modern aerial firefighting operation.[3] The film, however, follows the same basic plot line: the spirit of a recently dead expert pilot mentors a newer pilot, while watching him fall in love with his surviving girlfriend.[4] The names of the four principal characters of the earlier film are all the same, with the exception of the Ted Randall character, who is called Ted "Baker" in the remake and Pete's last name is "Sandich", instead of "Sandidge".

        Some of the best flying scenes I've ever seen were in a TV series called 'Piece of Cake'.

        The long toll of the brave
        Is not lost in darkness
        Over the fruitful earth
        And athwart the seas
        Hath passed the light of noble deeds
        Unquenchable forever.

          Then their was the film 'Battle of Britain', which placed a curse, from which some of us never recovered...

            My worst jump story:
            My 13th jump was on the 13th day of the month, aircraft number 013.
            As recorded on my DA Form 1307 Individual Jump Log.
            No lie.
