Very good as I remember it.
4 December 2007 | by welshNickSee all my reviews

This TV series came out of France in the late sixties and a dubbed version was shown on the BBC in the early seventies. As a small boy whose father was a pilot in the RAF at the time I found it all quite fascinating. As far as I can remember two pilots of the French Air Force were officially listed as missing but were in actual fact doing some quite dirty jobs for the French government predominately in North Africa. The aeriel shots for their time were quite excellent and by the third series they were making it in colour. At least one annual was brought out by the BBC (saw it on ebay) and almost all the boys I knew at school watched it. It is still possible to get the french version on DVD though I fear like so many others the English print has gone forever. I'd dearly love to see this again but I fear all I will have is some rather fond memories.
