If you have never seen the 2005 French movie Les Chevaliers du Ciel (Sky Fighters) and you like aviation or just spectacular cinematography, you should rent it. The movie itself is as bad as Top Gun, but the combat airplane sequences are probably the best ever filmed. Here are its best moments:
Anders Lejczak loves airplanes. He's also a great 3D artist capable of capturing every detail of anything from Spitfires to MiGs to F-16s with incredible realism. So realistic, in fact, that I have trouble distinguishing some of these renderings from real photos.
