Thus far, all we have that are remotely close upon such aerospace themes are "Wings of Honneamise" and "SkyCrawlers"--by Hideaki Anno & Mamuro Oshii.

Does "Porco Rossi" count?

Actually, I just Wiki-Googled "WoH" to verify the art influences. I was pleased to read a reference to a long-shelved sequel, named 'Blue Uru', to be tentatively set 50yrs afterwards and concerning [fighter] pilots; supposedly discussed at Tokyo Anime Fair by Gainax( Last paragraph on Wikipedia entry, Ref. [7]: 21 Mar '13, from ANN article )

There's also

Allison and Lillia

Princess and the Pilot

The Cockpit

Ziphang

Pilot's Love Song

Area 88 OVA and TV Series

And yes Porco Rosso counts BIG TIME.

Why hasn't there been a Miyazaki-Kawamori movie about planes yet? (Or have I missed it somehow?)

That would be probably be the most epic thing ever in Anime, one can only hope!

Does epic aerosexual three-way [1] romance saga "Yukikaze" count?

[1] The only anime love triangle ever between a bearded lady, a sentient fighter aircraft and a home decorator who just happens to be good at flying.
