The one where Sinatra sings "Come fly with me"

Ever since seeing it in Catch Me if You Can it's reminded me of aviation, especially in the 60s (which is oddly before I was born ... )

"Gabriels Oboe" by Ennio Morricone. I always think of it when flying, especially Aer Lingus as it was in one of their adverts.

Perthshire Majesty By Samuel R. Hazo

It's very majestic. At 3:00 it reminds me of takeoff in a 757, very steep, with a great view out the window as you climb.

"Danger Zone" by Kenny Loggins. It fit the opening scene of Top Gun perfectly. I also think of F-14's when hearing this song.

"Learning to Fly" by Tom Petty is another that comes to mind.



There's nothing quite like a trijet.

I'd also add the Apollo 13 Theme song. I always listen to it when I'm flying.
