The High and the Mighty 1954

This Cinemascope, John Wayne produced movie set the template for all the disaster films to come in the following decades. It seems pretty corny now but has a small number of miniature aircraft shots which are reasonably well done.

 There is a Douglas DC-4 and a converted to rescue duties B-17 model featured in the miniature shots. Along with the aircraft there is a single shot of a miniature ship which is difficult to see in all the fog.

There is a model ship buried in the gloom in this shot.
