The Aviator

The main role was played by the famous Leonardo DiCaprio. This is a movie in which the talent of the American actor was incredibly revealed. At the same time, he was also joined by an incredible cast, including Cate Blanchett, Kate Beckinsale and John C. Reilly.

The film tells the story of a playboy, a test pilot, an aircraft designer and a businessman who suffered from obsessive-compulsive disorder.

Amelia

The film stars the famous Hilary Swank in the title role. The film is a fascinating biopic about the exploits of a real-life pilot Amelia Earhart, who overcame a dangerous journey to become the first woman pilot to fly around the world on her own.

Although not all the scenes of the movie take place on an airplane, the film fully reflects the life of a real aviator.

Planes, Trains and Automobiles

An explosive comedy featuring star actors John Candy and Steve Martin. The plot is based on the interaction of two opposite personalities who, by chance, are forced to travel together and even sleep in the same bed.

The incredible story with perhaps the longest travel delay in history. Flight delays, broken trains, and dangerous rides create a hilarious comedy with sharp characters.

Catch Me If You Can

The famous movie by the legendary Steven Spielberg with Leonardo DiCaprio, who plays a real FBI fraudster. According to the plot, one of his cunning ways to escape from FBI agent Carl Hanratty (Tom Hanks) is to impersonate a Pan Am pilot.

The movie is filled with vintage aviation details from the 1960s that will appeal to history buffs.

Snakes on a Plane

The film tells the story of a young man who becomes an unwitting witness to the murder of a prosecutor in Hawaii by a member of the Yakuza. Under the tutelage of two FBI agents, they try to transport him to Los Angeles on a regular passenger flight.

However, the mafia, having found out about this, loads a container of flowers onto the plane, where, in addition to flowers, there are a large number of poisonous snakes. And this is where the fun begins.
