"Some of the best flying sequences ever filmed". With a leader like that, you couldn't miss it! Sit back, turn up the volume and watch Peter O'Toole's character attempt to lift off an aeroplane when he has never flown one before.
It's the roaring sound of the aeroplane engine that does it. No other movie has given me the same realism of flying, because no other movie produces such a mind numbing loud and realistic engine sound. And when he get's it up in the air, how O'Toole depicts the shear joy of flying. It's all so exciting because of the sense of realism. Remember, turn up the volume.
