Never Shown Again Since: Travesty.
22 June 2016 | by (Derbyshire, UK.) – See all my reviews

It's Not Beef ... No my review isn't either but this was how it all started with this being the title of the first episode ever shown in April 1995.

Many may like myself found that this series tended to remind those who remembered Buccaneer from 1980 of precisely that. They are not completely the same but definitely of the same genre. I would call both excellent though Peter Capaldi with THAT Irish accent makes for a strong lead character as more becomes known about him other than his frequent tendencies to tell people to sh*g off / get it sha*gging right the next time! In my opinion the effects of working as a pilot with responsibilities and his knowledge of increased trade being plied are well-portrayed when it comes to his character.

For the airline Buffs the Boeing 707-323C aircraft which this drama features was a real one in service with Burlington Air Express. The Aer Lingus Boeing 747-148s are also real as these once plied the Carrier's transatlantic routes out of Dublin. Principal location this drama was filmed in was Shannon (SNN) which means that on occasions one gets to see Aeroflot stopping over there too like they used to until the advent of longer-range Boeing 767-300ER and Airbus A310-308 aircraft on many services ceased this stopping over from being a regular requirement for the Carrier.
