The opening credits included the flat we had in Park Drive Parkville near the intersection of Gatehouse Drive. Gaynor and other air hostesses lived there. It took about 30 crew all day just to shoot the day and night scenes they wanted. See more »

24 April 2007 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I do agree to a certain point, yes .. Skyways was cheap & tacky maybe (i agree) but some people really like these kinda soaps for all there own reasons. Speaking for myself (as a born Aussie now living in Holland) the first time i saw it i was totally hooked to Skyways (and i am not a soap person, believe me). But this series did have a charm all of its own somehow... At the time (mid 80's) it was shown on the UK satellite channel "Sky Channel" (which was on cable-TV at the time here in Holland) and believe me: i did not want to be disturbed when this cult-show was on... But cult it is, and 25+ years later it still has a cult status all of it's own, so whenever you have a chance to watch this again somewhere (which will never happen !) just watch it and enjoy! :-).
