Trivia

The closing epilogue of this TV mini-series states: "Bennett's team became the heart of the R.A.F. Ferry Command. With their American allies they delivered over 25,000 aircraft from Newfoundland, changing the course of the war. More than 500 men and women died flying for Ferry Command. Captain Don Bennett went onto found and lead the Pathfinders, an elite group of pilots who led Allied bombers to their targets in Nazi Germany." See more »

Goofs

In scenes that were supposed to be taking place in England, Canadian telephones can be seen everywhere. One character is seen using one with a coiled handset cord, which was not available in North America until after the war, and considerably later in the U.K. See more »

The airplanes deserve an apology

Possible the worst movie on my favorite subject of aviation. Right up there with 'Pearl Harbor' for a what-were-they-thinking stinker. There are so many errors of fact that it is not worth sitting thru the miserable acting and plot to note them all. The announcement that the Nazis had two aircraft carriers (as already noted in IMDb goofs) was bad enough, but to have an American general arrive in a RAF Lancaster bomber was way beyond credible. Even the costuming was bad; uniforms did not fit, there were too many meal ribbons and why were neckties not drawn up correctly.

Only good parts were with the actual flyable Lockheed Hudson and all too brief scenes with the Avro Lancaster.
