I watched Jesus Christ Airlines a few years ago on British TV, primarily to see the aircraft involved-I am very interested in old propeller-driven airliners.

It was very good from that point of view, but it was also a rather moving story, involving starvation and suffering, especially of children.

Very interesting interviews too with pilots, churchmen and other people involved in the Biafran airlift, which I'm able to recall dimly-I was 10 in 1968.

Overall an excellent piece of work, both as an aviation history film and as a documentary.
