Wow, i was at Walmart the other day and they had a display of great war movies like 12:00 high, Battle of Britian, Guadalcanal Diary, A Yank in the RAF, and many others. $7.99 american dollars. They also had one of my all time favorites...The Blue Max. I saw this once when i was 8 yrs old. Havn't seen it since until i bought it last night. It was a great flik. One would think you can make a sim with WW1 in mind. They did have an SE 5, and a Fokker Triplane. Dont know what the other biplanes were though. I think they were trying to replicate the Albatros or something. Very good movie though. I highly recommend it.

Yeah it's always been one of my favorites. Haven't seen it for a long time but seem to remember the German pilots were flying mostly Fokker D VIIs, or at least replicas of them.

Great flick. I always think of it when I fly under a bridge, or see screenshots on the ss thread of that.

A better thread title would have been... has anyone NOT seen The Blue Max.

A very good film for its day. And more than just a war movie. A very good story.

With a nice, ruthless ending. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
