    So I am already starting to collect film snippets, shorts, etc., for showing at the Gaston's Drive In (movies under the stars, by the runway). Lots of short and fun "intermission" bits, but I am accepting recommendations for the main event.

    Obvious possibilities:

    The High and the Mighty
    Fate is the Hunter (anyone got that?)
    Pushing Tin
    The Ed Frederick Story (How one man overcame inertia and apathy, and secured re-opening of a piece of Vital National Aviation Infrastructure)
    One Six Right (I haven't bought it yet...)

    The suggestion box is (ding) open.

    Can we sit in our airplanes, clip little speaker boxes over the windows, and run get Milk Duds between shorts?

    Try HOT SHOTS (one) and of course AIRPLANE
    plus, all other flying films ever made with only the flight scenes snipped and looped together. It works well for pilots.

    Although I won't be attending, Pushing Tin is a great movie and surprisingly the set is fairly identical to the real NY TRACON. They even placed the EWR area correctly, although it's MUCH darker in the real TRACON and it the radar room is on the 2nd floor.

    The writer did a fairly good job with all the terminology and the only thing that wasn't accurate (without being real picky) was the actual scope.

    Have fun @ Gaston's, and maybe I'll be able to attend next year!

    I've got a complete set of "Aileron" videos. And "Wide World of Flying" :)

    How bout some "Flying" movies

    Flying Deuces
    Flying Down to Rio
    Flying Cadets
    Flying Leathernecks
    Flying Tigers
    Keep'em Flying
    Flying Fortress

    If you want to make this an "educational" program I could bring "How to Fly the P-38, P-47, B-25, A-26, P-61" videos. Or the history of EDW AFB...

    I have Cloud Dancer on VHS, bootlegged over to DVD. I'll bring it along in case it gets a favorable vote score.

    Chip, way, way ahead of me there. I intend on arriving Friday, and I guess it all depends upon what else gloms into the schedule. As far as I am concerned, it can be both nights. Hey, who's gonna stop me?

    It occurs to me that, if someone with the equipment and tech-savvy-ness is there, we could even pick a few choice moments from the arrival parade / judging to slip in for a fun reel.

    Whatever, my plan is to bring along a computer and a projector (have to buy one, but plan on getting one for the firm some day anyway, so bound to have it by then anyway...), and have some content along (either stored on HD or on DVD/CD).

    Yeah, I know, too much complication, but it combines my two passiosn: flying and tech toys. Plus, good opportunity to get somewhat up to speed on storing and manipulating video on 'puters.

    How about Folks! if anybody has a copy. (I haven't seen it yet, but parts were filmed at my local airport, and I'd love to see it). I also vote for (and can bring) One Six Right or Island in the Sky. I can also bring a few episodes of Sky King on DVD, or The Aviator or The High and the Mighty.
