Airplane Disaster Movies (1939-1995)

A Listmania! list by James McDonald
The list author says: "Many films have been made over the last 73 years that include drama, suspense and tragedy aboard an airplane. As film making and special effects significantly improved, the movies became more of a big-budget production. The four "Airport" films of the 1970's are the cream of the crop and began the disaster film genre using an all-star cast. They are fun to watch. Well, I mean it's fun to see the celebrities act.
Unfortunately, not all Airplane Disaster Movies are available on VHS or DVD, especially our favorite tv-movies in the 1970's, 1980's.
