Blind Gun

Disney feel-good movie about a blind fighter pilot.

This would be a family-oriented feel-good movie in which a blind man, through sheer grit and determination, and against the nay-saying of naysayers, becomes the top fighter pilot in the US air force.

To make the plot believable, the pilot would rely in his seeing-eye dog, Orville, who would sit on his lap during flights, and yelp and whine to communicate what's happening in the air. To enhance the cuteness factor, the dog would be outfitted with a helmet and goggles.

At the climax of the movie, the hero would single-handedly save America from terrorists, to the tune of "Don't Stop Believin'" by Journey.

       So I take it you didn't like the "Air Bud" series? (See link). How very tragic!

       "The airliner of the future will have a crew of three - a Pilot, a Man, and a Dog."   

       "The Man is there to feed the Dog."   

       "The Dog is there to bite the Pilot if he tries to touch the controls ..."

       In other news, the USAF has just let the first pilot missing a leg return to flying.

       That's nothing. In England we used to have a prime minister with no balls.

       Oh, hang on. We still do.

       Older than the _RAF_ pilot Douglas Bader? Nope.
