Acclaimed film-maker Martin Scorsese had to overcome his fear of flying to direct new movie The Aviator.

The 61-year-old GOODFELLAS director took to the skies to shoot several mid-air scenes for the new film - due to be released this December (04) - about the flying days of tycoon Howard Hughes.

He says, "The more anything upsets me, the more I want to learn about it."
