Helicopter skyrunner Anneka Rice races against the clock to find directions to treasure at locations worked out by studio guests from cryptic clues.
Did You Know?
The series used two Bell 206 Jetranger helicopters chartered from Castle Air. G-BHXU, piloted by Keith Thompson
, was the main helicopter used by the Skyrunner and her entourage. A second helicopter, G-SPEY, piloted by Geoff Newman
and later Michael Malric-Smith
, shadowed BHXU as a communications aircraft. BHXU made later appearances in Interceptor
(1989), among numerous other programmes, until a gearbox/rotor failure in 1995 forced it to ditch in the sea near Alderney in the Channel Islands. The pilot Michael Malric-Smith
managed to escape unharmed. See more
