I'm gearing up to get a Kickstarter beginning soon that focuses on flight. One of the things I've been doing in downtime is popping in various movies that really capture a sense of flight, where you're mounting up, strapping in, and heading off into the sky. So far I've gone through:
Empire Strikes Back (asteroid scene)
Return of the Jedi
Avatar: The Last Airbender (the series, NOT the movie)
Kiki's Delivery Service
The Harry Potter movies (at times)
What other movies am I missing? And what I'm looking for are movies that really get at the sense of flight. Just because there are planes in the sky isn't enough. As much as I like Air Force One, it isn't really about flying.

For a first-person view, look at the opening sequences of Patriot Games and Red Riding Hood. Patriot Games in the cinema made me feel seriously air-sick, Red Riding Hood less so but noticeably. Also the plunge into the pit in Wrath of the Titans was vertigo-inducing.
