Flying movies

Has anybody got any good tips about motion pictures dealing with planes or airports. With most movies I am terribly disapointed about how reality is distorted in the interest of sensation. Are there any good fairly realistic movies out there ?

The 1970 classic "Airport", based on the novel by Arthur Hailey, is not totally realistic, but it's not ludicrously wrong either. I think that the most realistic was "Airport '75".
