Hey Octopia,
Nice to see you again. Thanks for coming back after a long time. While
I'll see what I can do about getting a list of airship movies, I'll
not stand in the way of researchers who might be able to come up with
it faster.

By the way... are you looking for fiction movies only? Meaning,
documentaries about real airships will be excluded. Or do also want
movies about real airships?

Hi Techtor, 

Good to hear from you as well.

Well, they can be fiction or documentary. Problem with the documentary
though is that they are more difficult to obtain. So, at the end of
the day, I am trying to see a list of movies that I'll get to see :)

All the best...
