I also vaguely remember a movie about a Polish Spitfire squadron called ‘deep blue’ or ‘into the blue’ or something along those lines that had some good ait-to-air in it.

If we are going to include space combat then the 2004 BattleStar Galactica series has to be up there to! lol

Where was BoB or the dogfights at the end of Aces High or Firefox?

What about Blue Thunder vs Hughes 500MD, or F-14s vs Zeros in The Final Countdown?

only 7, 5,4, and 1 count. real aircraft.

 

and agreed, need BoB,  with maybe shots from Memphis Belle.  again, real aircraft tho the Belle might not be counted due to it technically being German intercepts, not dogfighting.

 

interesting fact about Memphis Belle.... the main cast was alomost lost during shooting when the B-17 they were getting a ride in crashed. luckily, nobody was hurt in the crash. but probably part of what made insurance rates for using live planes go up for movies.

Even "Flying Misfits" (the series pilot for "Baa Baa Black Sheep"), beats half the movies mentioned in that article.

My favourite would be the hot pursuit in "Firefox", amazing for the year when the movie was made. For non-computer engineered pictures, I remember a fine dogfight, P-40s vs Zeroes, in "Tora Tora Tora". For tweaked pictures, several sequences of "Flyboys" I really enjoyed. Oh, er, and "Hot shots" too... About StarWars, my favourite would be rather the assault against the second Death Star (Return of the Jedi).

I'd willingly sit through any Val Kilmer or George Clooney Batman than watch that one again! Firing 3 wingtip sidewinders? Gimme a break, Doug Masters!

While these are anime

 

Some are among the best cinematic achievements of aeronautics. I don't know how many times I could watch it, but the "flying Red Pig" remains to me an exceptional film.

no dogfights (we don't count the 2 Phantoms that kill the MiG that's after them)

What about the Simpsons dogfights? Like the F-15 shooting first his wingman then himself with malfunctioning Sparrow, or the Tomcat overshooting the Wright flyer, then their pilots chasing it on foot?

 

And then there is Milhouse

I'd guess the video is made to showcase recent hollywood cgi movies.

 

Of what I've seen,  Battle of Britain may be the best, as it did use the real airplanes, and it went deep with some air battle concepts like sun blindness, confusion, etc...

 

For the futuristic stuff, with physics for small craft, the Babylon~5 series beats all.  B5 is way too deep, and phony videos don't like it deep. lol

 

However, from what little I watched of the new post~modern BattleStar Galactica series, this had the most realistic *visual* portrayal of small spacecraft combat, although still far from what would be reality -- you can't see what's going on cos everything is too fast or way waaaay too far away.
