Something I didn't realize when it first came out, but Airplane! is actually a spoof on the 1957 film "Zero Hour" staring Dana Andrews, Linda Darnell and Elroy "Crazylegs" Hirsch. (yeah, I've never heard of any of em either.)

Here is a great shot-for-shot comparison of the two films, thanks to "Icecoldkatie" from YouTube.
