Storyline

A young girl, who struggles with her pilot father's death in a plane crash years before, visits her grandmother in Newfoundland. While there, she encounters the ghosts of two pilots, who are condemned to Earth to constantly re-live their own crash that occurred in 1927. The girl decides to help the pair by helping them re-build their airplane and complete their flight so they may be released and, in turn, deal with her own emotional bondage.

Trivia

This movie is based on a true event. Capt. Charles Eugene Jules Marie Nungesser and Capt. Francois Coli were a pair of French aviators who may have crashed in Newfoundland as they sought to become the first pilots to fly nonstop from Paris to New York in 1927 - just two weeks before Charles Lindbergh made aviation history with his successful nonstop flight in the opposite direction. Their plane was the White Bird. The wreckage and their bodies were never found. See more »

Lovely film about learning to let go
23 October 2004 | by (Bauhaus, Germany) – See all my reviews

I loved this film although I'm not a young girl.

I think quite a few people have difficulties in letting go.

This film tells the story of a twelve-year-old girl who learns to live with the untimely death of her pilot father through meeting two ghost pilots and helping them. On the way she also meets typical adolescent problems (conflicts with her mother and grandmother, other jealous? girls who try to sabotage her plans, a boy who might later on fall in love with her), makes mistakes and learns how to cope with them.

Just a lovely film about growing up and letting go.
