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
