Saw it tonight -Christmas night. It was pretty good, the airplanes looked cheesy (you could easily tell they were computer generated) and they went a bit too far with the obsessive compulsive(?) thing as far as Howard goes, but overall a good movie. A bonus was that the all the chicks he hooked up with (except for the girl that played Kate Hepburn) were hot. Anyone else go to see it???

I too saw it and loved it.
One question: what was the plane he broke the speed record in (and then ran out of gas and crashed)? I'm sure they had mentioned it, and I just missed it.
Would love to fly in that plane....of course never gonna happen!

I'll have to look for it in the Air & Space Museum the next time I am up in D.C. Judging by the crash photos of the H-1, the damage didn't look too bad. A new prop, and some polish would probably take care of most of it.
