Good for aviation fans ...
7 May 2013 | by (Columbus, OH USA) – See all my reviews

I saw this film on the compilation video "What Were They Thinking?" from Netflix. Based on what I found on the Web, I must be in a minority of reviewers, because I liked it. True, none of the performances are Oscar-worthy, but they are not abysmally bad either. Although this film is definitely "sentimental", I disagree with the adjective "cheesy".

The theme is aviation history. So even if you are a Jimmy Stewart fan, you will probably not appreciate this film unless you are an aviation buff also. It is a tribute to the Douglas DC-3, one of the most important airplanes in history, on the 40th anniversary of its introduction in 1936.

Bottom line: if you are an aviation or history fan, worth a view. Otherwise, probably not.
