Nick Millbourne: What's the trouble, Captain?
Captain Brent: I'm not happy about the port outer - she sounds a bit rough to me.
Nick Millbourne: Instruments check all right?
Captain Brent: Yes.
Nick Millbourne: The instrument say she's okay, the chief mechanic says she's okay...?

In the air, I am responsible for this aircraft and the lives of all on board her, and neither you nor anyone else - *including* the chairman of the corporation - is going to induce me to take her one inch off the ground until I am absolutely satisfied that she ...

Watched as thick fog really did cover the airports
20 December 2006 | by peachymead-1See all my reviews

I watched this on December 21st of December 2006, and it's really a thick fog covering most of the country, including of course London airports. The t.v. was full of pictures of massive crowds trying to get away. This film took you back to the same airport that is fog bound today. In those days it looked almost an enjoyment to be fog bound. It's a great old film full of atmosphere of the times. No drunken swearing passengers dressed as if they had come straight from work, all well behaved passengers who spoke very well and behaved admirably. None of the passengers complained it was the airports fault like today, all agreed it was the terrible weather. Good old fashion British black and white film, with stars of the day. Watch it again and again and you will find its different every time, its almost as if you were there It does what 'Oh Mr. Porter' and the 'Ghost train' did for rail travel fans, pure yester year atmosphere.
