Trivia

Following filming of a flying stunt on M40 motorway in Buckinghamshire (which was newly completed but not yet open to traffic) Joan Hughes (pilot of the Tiger Moth) was charged but later acquitted of seven counts of dangerous flying when the 'plane failed to make contact with the surface of the while passing under a bridge. A crosswind had prevented Hughes from landing the plane on the road before passing under the bridge as stipulated as a condition of permission to use the location. Norman Foster (who supervised the shooting of this scene) was also charged but acquitted of three counts of aiding and abetting. In addition to the court case filming permission was revoked immediately, leading to the sequence being completed with a miniature set of the site and the model aircraft used for other flying sequences.

The plot is simplistic and cliché, but many scenes are lovingly crafted and entertaining in their own right
28 September 2001 | by (Florida, USA) – See all my reviews

These films have a certain style and flair, helped greatly by Barry Gray's music. The plot is simplistic and cliché, but has a dash of originality. There is the ongoing Thunderbirds obsession with the form and function of ships and other vehicles. The biplane acrobatics were very well done, and the music playing when the biplane first appears is comical and appropriate. Every scene and transition seems lovingly crafted and there is no doubt that this film is a work of art.
