Come Fly with Me.

The first film set in the world of WWI aviation for decades has finally got a distribution deal. "Flyboys" has opened in the U.S. and is set to open in the UK soon. You can see a large number of the props and vehicles over at Manston Air Museum, including the two aircraft pictured above. The interesting part about those two is they're flat, for setting up in the back of shots. There's several three dimensional aeroplanes inside though, including a large Gotha and a copy of the triplane made famous by the Red Baron.
Incredible value as well, anyone under sixteen gets in free, everyone else pays just a quid with the additional attraction of the totally free Spitfire and Hurricane Museum opposite.
