If I may go off-topic a bit with some trivia:

IIRC, "Airplane!" was aired as an in-flight movie at least once. And I
don't know of Miyazaki's "Porco Rosso" was, but it was intended to be
shown on JAL flights originally, anyway -- it has some aerial combat at
least, I don't remember if there are crashes or not.

Some airports have DVD rentals now -- I'll have to remember to check the 
next time to see if their rental catalog mirrors the no crash provision.

Anyway, given what the networks are getting like, we'll probably have all 
kinds of stuff in a decade or so.
