The tension/denounement comes from Jimmy Stewart, who is a seasoned pilot because he just doesn't get the theory of aerodynamics: Flight is about weight, lift and drag whether a toy or a C5A(much less the new Airbus: super plane).
A very true statement ref the "Flight is about weight, lift and drag whether a toy or a C5A(much less the new Airbus: super plane)."
Did you know they actually flew the full sized "model" to make the movie? But it did kill the pilot. I thought the original was far better then the new movie.
