Filming took place during the winter of 2010 and was hampered by the heavy snowfall that year. Only on the two days when the scenes of the plane crash in the snow were filmed, there was no natural snow and snow machines had to be employed. See more »
In the long shots of the Airspeed Ambassador outside the terminal the propellers can be seen slowly turning. The Ambassador was a piston engined aircraft, the props would not rotate slowly like a turbo-prop engine. See more »

I've only just finished watching this film based on the Munich air disaster and how Manchester United cope's with the loss of their players and friends. Now I've never written one of these reviews before and with all honestly it'll probably be my last, but I thought the BBC did such a good job with the entirety of this film that it deserves someone whether they read it or not to give some feedback. I'm not a Manchester United fan but I do love football - not soccer - Football! And I am a fan of well written and directed films and this has an abundance of both. I'm not going to write of the details of the film basically because you should all know your history and I don't want to spoil a perfectly good film. All I can say is David Tennant once again like every performance he gives is outstanding, alongside with Dougray Scott and a young Jack O'Connell whom plays Sir Bobby Charlton (clearly before he receives his knighthood). You don't need to like Football to enjoy this film, you just need to enjoy good films...
