The "Trident" aircraft used for exterior shots in the series was an ex-British Airways aircraft which suffered a heavy landing at Glasgow Prestwick International airport. It was found to be beyond economical repair to re-enter flight and became a training tool at the airport for tug-drivers and firemen. It was re-painted in "Air Scotia" colors specifically for the show. See more »
Fiendishly camp cleverly written comedy by Alan Cumming
The High Life, was unfortunate to be cast among the often discarded sitcoms of the BBC's dustbins. This was a brilliantly written comedy set around a scottish airline called Scotair. Although only six episodes and a pilot were ever released, they certainly brought pleasure to myself and many other people. Sadly it has only been aired once, although I think it was repeated in the week for those not fortunate enough to catch it on the Sunday. Again another series as indeed the Brittas empire not released on BBC video. (Although there was one 6 episode VHS tape released of Brittas.
High life was very camp but extremely funny, and it saddens me that a second series was canned.
