Moonraker (1979) (part 2 of 14)
Bond says he doesn’t think he’ll ever fly with anyone else, so the woman decides to make sure he doesn’t by pulling a gun on him. The pilot comes out of the cockpit, also holding a gun and wearing a parachute. He shoots out the controls of the plane, and then hands a spare parachute to the stewardess, who will not be seen again.
The pilot then commits a bald-faced example of the Fallacy of the Talking Killer™ while stupidly walking towards Bond with his gun. Bond makes him pay for this dearly when he springs into action and kicks the gun away, resulting in a fistfight. The match is fairly even until the pilot opens the door to the plane. Blatantly disregarding the First Rule of Movie Planes™, the cabin does not instantly depressurize. Instead, Bond and the pilot manage to stay on their feet for the remainder of the fight.
