Music from the Aviation Age

via Irish Elk comes a collection of flying songs from the twenties, thirties, and forties.

I suppose this is a fitting post in which to plug the movie Flyboys, a good World War I airplane movie with remarkable dogfights and only slightly lacking in script and acting. I am surprised the era hasn't enjoyed more Hollywood attention. Air combat was one of the most romanticized and least bloody areas of the Great War, and the movie Wings was one of the first giant hits in the budding film industry.
