Trivia

The bomber flown by Pete and Dorinda is the Douglas A-26 Invader, used by the US Army Air Forces in WWII, and the US Air Force in Korea and Vietnam.

Ted flies a Super Decathalon, an aerobatic airplane. See more »

Goofs

When Al's engine catches fire, he is heard saying "My engine's on fire, you believe that?" while it is clear that the actor is saying "you believe that shit?" In fact, you can still hear the "sh" sound from the cut-out profanity at the end of the spoken line. See more »

Quotes

Ted Baker: [being serenaded by the other pilots after a botched exercise] This is first place, right?

A Minor Classic
12 February 2001 | by (Lake Butler, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a feel good romantic comedy that will be in movie viewers libraries for years to come. Great cast lead by Richard Dreyfuss and well supported by Holly Hunter and John Goodman. Throw in a glimpse of Audrey Hepburn, and you have the making of another fine movie from Steven Spielberg. "Always" has all the ingredients to become a minor classic with staying power. I rated this 8.
