    You've just about had it with movies in which children vanish from planes; psycho killers ply women with Sea Breezes at the airport bar; and Liam Neeson, Wesley Snipes, or Kurt Russell so much as go near a 747. You'd rather not think about pilots getting drunk, Air Force One being taken hostage, or snakes somehow making their way onto your flight. Chill out, Hollywood.

    Luckily, not every movie scene involving air travel will put the fear of god in you. There's Rick and Elsa parting ways at the Casablanca airport. There's Snoop Dogg playing the world's most stoned pilot (we hope). There's George Clooney racking up miles. That we can live with.

    Click through to see some of our favorite flight scenes. Nothing scary, we promise.

    Goldfinger (1964)
    Funnily enough, James Bond (Sean Connery) and pilot Pussy Galore (Honor Blackman) never quite joined the Mile High Club. Their sexy banter must have at least fogged up the windows, though.

    Airplane! (1980)
    This classic disaster film parody is full of gems, but the female passenger getting shamed for dying single is a favorite (and for some of us, a tad relatable).

    Planes, Trains & Automobiles (1987)
    If you happen to be squashed next to a chatty salesperson who insists on removing his or her shoes, be patient and have an open mind. You may be inviting them over for Thanksgiving. Or maybe, you'll just submit them to Passenger Shaming. Either way.

    Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989)
