A great old film! I had fun watching it.

I've been looking for this film ever since I built my my first Scientific Skymaster kit that said 'as featured in the movie "The Long Flight"' on the box. There were also several articles in the popular magazines of the time describing the film and I enjoyed finally seeing it.

Besides the Skymaster I also recognized the Comet Cloud Buster as first model the boy attempts to fly. Korda's Wakefield is the easiest to identify, but the model used in the Wakefield fly-off is elegant and unusual. I found these photos on a MySpace devoted to the movie that show the models more clearly.

Thanks!

(Tip: Should anyone wish to save the movie on HD, VIXY does the job......please note that you must paste the proper Youtube-URL in the box, i.e. you must open the movie from Youtube to get the URL)

I have it on DVD and the image isn't any better. If anyone has a better version, let me know

Does anyone know anything about the F1B the man uses in this video. I was aware of the shoulder wing fad that crept in during the 70's and 80's, but the dihedral on that craft is extreme, and the T-tail is a bit unusual, too.
