Model Aircraft Movies up to 1969

This is a list of movies released up to the end of 1969 that I know ( because I have watched them) or I believe have shots of model aircraft in them.

I will be adding to this list from time to time as my research progresses, so this page is always under construction. It may be the case that some of the earlier films I have listed turn out not to have a model in them. I won't know for certain until I have located a source of the film and got around to watching it.

Please let me know of any I have might have missed, particularly from European  and Japanese films of which I know very little about and would like to know a great deal more.

Clicking on any link will take you to the page for that title. No link means I haven't done that title yet.
Some of the links will take you to a modelshipsinthecinema page where I have already covered that particular title which had model ship sequences in it and also featured a model aircraft as well.
