Did You Know?


In the original script,Kees Brusse's character Dick did not fly from Curaçao to the Netherlands on his own, but was accompanied by Monique van de Ven as Claudia and another character played by Rudolf Lucieer. During production, Van de Ven fell in love with cinematographer Jan de Bont which let to friction on set. Eventually Van de Ven became stressed out and had to leave the production. De Bont was replaced by Theo van de Sande and the script was hastily rewritten. Now Dick made the flight on his own, Rudolf's Lucieers role was written out completely and Van de Ven was sued for breach of contract for 500.000 guilders by producers Pim de la Parra & Wim Verstappen.

An excellent masterpiece about a man who loves to fly
28 July 2006 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Being a pilot myself for more than 33 years, I must say that I never before enjoyed a movie with this explicit detail of profession, as the main actor performed; my sincere compliments to Kees Brusse!

For myself, it took me 32 years to rediscover this film, after its initial broadcasting in 1974. I never forgot it and now it is available again!

Not only for pilots but for all DC-3 enthusiasts; this film is a real MUST HAVE!

Spell the word that all pilots and people interested in flying may see this movie! Dr. Volker Klein
