Goofs

All the shirts in the RAF in World War 2, and in fact up until 1971 were 'Collar unattached' which means the collars were attached by front and back collar studs. It meant that having the top button and the tie down could never have happened as shown when they are relaxing. See more »

Excellent job for such a low budget
27 February 2019 | by jimthethingSee all my reviews

Despite the cost of this movie coming in below £80,000 it easily held my attention for the full ninety odd minutes. Yes, if you look closely you can see some irregularities, and the action scenes are very few and far between. On the whole it is worth watching. The Merlin engines sounded fantastic at the cinema, and the story really conveys the desperation of the brave bomber crews, whose lives could end at the flip of a coin. It also did a great job of showing how living as fully as possible on the brink of disaster took its toll on the ground crews and families of those involved.
