Piece of Cake (1988)
10/10
Simply the best, most realistic aerial combat story ever told!

Sure they zoomed in on the same bad model explosions from "Battle of Britain" or that the annoying moving shadows on the tight cockpit shots. (mostly overcast) What triumphs is the powerhouse talent and real flavor of events. I watch it regularly,the spit scenes are languorous(?) and beautiful. the fact that the squadron is the main character,allows for characters to come and go (albeit painfully) Its lovingly art directed (This was a matter of national pride) - and directed with a sure hand.

I'm sure somebody in here in Hollywood caught this on cable and immediately wanted to make the rumored "The Few" With Tom Cruise. History has to take a bit of a hit to make a memorable movie.
