The aircraft used in the movie was a modified Lazair Ultralight. It did not actually fly, as it had no engine and was made of fibreglass. The airplane was fitted with a small electric motor to turn the propellor, when filming on the ground. With the help of a crane, the mock airplane was lifted and slowly swung around with the actors inside, for its scenes in the film, and the footage then sped up in post-production. An identical, but small scale radio operated model airplane was used for long shots. The full scale version would later be displayed suspended from the ceiling of Stringfellows, an aviation-themed restaurant in Bloemfontein, South Africa, part-owned by producer Boet Troskie. The airplane was later seen on display in Mimosa Mall, site of Troskie's Mimosa Films offices. Meanwhile, the radio controlled model plane would be seen hanging on display in a hobbyshop in Cresta, a suburb of Randburg, near the border of Johannesburg. See more »

Though not as funny as the original- the refreshing beauty of the children and the determination of the father to find them make this an enjoyable movie. Plus it was nice to see all the wildlife- including the badger from hell. This time there was more chemistry between the leads- believably romantic-- and the nature- how to survive in a waterless place was accurate.
