For me, it's Paul McCartney's "Jet"

Actually it's about his dog Jet, but still a neat song.

This should probably be in polls, but it might be fun to have a wider audience in this folder.... any others?

The Great Gig in the Sky by Pink Floyd.
Not exactly about flying, but about the fear of flying.
At least that's how the band members explain the "lyrics".  Smile

For a great song and a hilarious video it has to be the Foo Fighters' "Learn to Fly"

Filled with the stereotypes of flying too... fat seat mates, oversized carry on, mincing flight attendants...

What a coincidence, I'd been thinking about starting a thread on this subject for a while. And my favorite song's already been mentioned:

Quoting STLGph (Reply 2):
Jet Airliner, Steve Miller Band.

You have to love a song that mentions the 707 in it's lyrics. Of course if you listen to the words it's really a song about not wanting to travel, but it's still a great song.
