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

The registration number on every Hudson aircraft seen is the same. The reason for this is that there was only one Hudson available to the film makers - it is actually an exhibit in the collection of the North American Aviation Museum in Gander. See more »

I rather enjoyed it!!!
30 October 2006 | by nancyhanaSee all my reviews

A very nice little show, I've only seen part I also, and am looking forward to part 2.. I am not a WWII buff, so I don't know of the accuracy of all the situations. But as a good Canadian movie I thought it was great! I thought the actors did a good job in portraying the era. The main characters had good interaction between each other. I liked the plot including a small town NFLD, playing a major role, I would like to see how real/accurate this movie was. (As the person above noted many mistakes.) I noticed they have some online information about the what really happened and real pictures and comments. Even some help for teachers. Overall I enjoyed it and am eagerly looking forward to watching part II :)
