Pretty cool films! And yes, I agree in that filming is way better than today CGI's.

The best thing is they really filmed it with real aircraft, real airbases... a whole lot of propaganda..but lot of nice equipment.

I would also recommend watching Soviet war movies from 70-80's. Although they are hard to find. Mostly they also filmed it on real airbases, ships etc... Even with the whole bunch of propaganda can be a nice reference for modelers,  etc..

'Toward the unknown' - also good.

A pity Toward the Unknown isn't out on DVD -- one of my favorites of the time period (young James Garner bites it in the "XF-120"). Another would be "X-15", which I have on VHS.

Found the trailer for The Hunters:

Along the lines of Bridges at Toki-Ri, would be "Men of the Fighting Lady"

Return 2 Base . The air combat on the city between the skyscrapers is really impressive!! Nice movie.
