The Thomas Crown Affair (1968) is included with Amazon Prime by son_of_flubber
I recently watched this movie for the first time. It's pretty good. I'd be curious to hear people's views and recollections about the film, especially if you were flying in that era (or in the movie).

Fixing longitudinal crack in wood canopy rail by George Haeh
