Trivia

The taking off of the Lancaster bombers was filmed at an old RAF Bomber Command station at East Kirkby in Lincolnshire, England. This is now a privately owned museum. One Lancaster was actually used for the ground shots, one of only four left in the U.K. The aeroplane used was 'Just Jane'NX611 (displayed at the East Kirkby museum) and as it is not airworthy, it was only allowed to race 'tail wheel up' along the runway at 80mph for 10 seconds before powering down. The pilot for the taxi-ing was a pilot with the R.A.F. Battle of Britain Memorial Flight. The scenes where the Lancaster is seen flying, footage of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Lancaster PA474 is used. See more »

Brilliantly acted, A masterclass for younger actors.
17 February 2003 | by Linda_freemanSee all my reviews

The acting of the senior cast of NIGHT FLIGHT (Christopher Plummer and Edward Woodward)was superb. It is a rare thing nowadays for the BBC to produce such a golden chance for the public to enjoy a gem like this. The writing was also faultless, but I can understand that the story could be confusing, and did not think enough care was taken in the casting of the actors playing the younger versions of the lead characters. I know they are on a HIDING TO NOTHING, as most people know exactly what Messers Plummer and Woodward looked like when they were young (they've had long careers) but even so it was difficult to work out who was who in flashback. The scenes of mayhem in the aircraft were also somewhat confusing. That said, just watching these two actors must have provided a masterclass for anyone with film and theatrical ambitions. Sadly but inevitably it does not seem there will be any chance of BAFTA'S or any other awards, but I hope Mr Plummer will be coaxed back across the Atlantic to do other things in the future. Apart from his big screen appearances we do not see enough of him in Britain. NIGHT FLIGHT underlined just how much we are missing out.
