Trivia

The taking off of the Lancaster bombers was filmed at an old RAF Bomber Command station at East Kirkby in Lincolnshire, England. This is now a privately owned museum. One Lancaster was actually used for the ground shots, one of only four left in the U.K. The aeroplane used was 'Just Jane'NX611 (displayed at the East Kirkby museum) and as it is not airworthy, it was only allowed to race 'tail wheel up' along the runway at 80mph for 10 seconds before powering down. The pilot for the taxi-ing was a pilot with the R.A.F. Battle of Britain Memorial Flight. The scenes where the Lancaster is seen flying, footage of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Lancaster PA474 is used. See more »

Good WWII-modern film
1 March 2002 | by frankiehudsonSee all my reviews

These days, anything with Christopher Plummer is well worth watching. He has a certain screen presence and there are none better at portraying the 'stiff upper lip' Englishman (even though he's Canadian). This film is no different.

Strange cast of characters, the Woodward one being quite amusing. Still somewhat confusing plot. Excellent, vintage Lancaster bombers used which really, excellently show just what it must've been like in Bomber Command during the War.
