Trivia

The "Trident" aircraft used for exterior shots in the series was an ex-British Airways aircraft which suffered a heavy landing at Glasgow Prestwick International airport. It was found to be beyond economical repair to re-enter flight and became a training tool at the airport for tug-drivers and firemen. It was re-painted in "Air Scotia" colors specifically for the show. See more »

I loved this series, and have been waiting patiently for it to be repeated. Imagine my surpise when searching the internet I found that it has eventually been released on DVD (including the pilot episode).
