Not a bad list, not in order I would put them.

battle of britain and memphis belle would be at the top for me.
I would love to still see The Blue Max though

i dont think though there have been much films about fighter pilots in the later part of ww2 are there – that is, say the mustang pilots during the allied bombings ? There is Red Tails but what else?

its a subject that could easily have more films
