I cannot remember if we've covered this particular film on here yet but figured I might as well post it again:

It follows Stephen Radcliffe through his pilot training up to his first flight as second officer. At the time he was the youngest pilot to join BOAC. VC10s are included :mrgreen:

Saw that on youtube a while back. Apparently Radcliffe was killed not long after in a road accident.

I had a look at PPRuNe, it says there that he died from a fall off a cliff during a camping holiday. That was in 1971, so a year after the film was produced. Another reason to promote it then, it is a small tribute to a career and a life which were both way too short.

The captain looks a bit like Graham Hill I thought.
