Oracle ties to Flyboys movie

The Wall Street Journal has a neat story about the risks of filming dogfight scenes in the new aviation movie, Flyboys.

Apparently the movie project languished until Ellison’s 23-year-old son, David, heard about it and got involved. The paper described David Ellison as an aerobatic pilot and aspiring filmmaker.
