First World War, USA still not in war in Europe but some American boys volunteered French army before USA entered War. They were trained in France and they fought with German pilots over France and Germany.

There is action, drama, love and spectacular fight scenes. There is not that many movies about First World War, specially about war in the air so it is worth to see this movie but maybe not that often as Platoon or Black Hawk Down :)

Year 1972, Vietnam, pilot Jake Grafton (Brad Johnson) and his bombardier flays in a mission to destroy some strategic vehicles. After bombing it looked like there were no vehicles, and bombardier is shoot to death. Jake starts to question the purpose of this mission. He starts to fly with experience bombardier Virgile Cole (Willem Dafoe) and together they fly on self mission…

This movie is ok, sometimes boring but still ok. Good actors plays here and also pictures of jets in fly are nicely done. At the end 3 planes are destroyed by some anti aircrafts gun which is a little bit stupid but I still like it because it is about Vietnam war which is cool.
