A view from the other cockpit. This is some real good footage, done as I think it should be, with some real aircraft (I think). And they understand what Howard Hughes learned in Hell’s Angels: speed is relative. Notice all the scenes are either near the ground or clouds, thus the viewer sees the relative speed.

Hell’s Angels, set in WWI, is still a good watch. Real aircraft is still the best way to go. In my first book, Project 7 Alpha, I write about a WWI air battle like this. The other books in the Aviator Series: Vengeance at Midway and Guadalcanal, ENDGAME in the Pacific and Code Name; Infamy all have air to air combat scenes from WWII.
