Flight, with Denzel Washington.
Has one of the better movie crashes, although it still looks far from realistic...

Some I enjoyed over the years that have not been named:

Memphis Belle
Battle of Britain
One Six Right (a documentary about Van Nuys airport)
Apollo 13

Another famous one is Pearl Harbour, but apart from the flying sequences, I didn't like it too much.
