The world of the airline pilot is the utter darkness or the brilliant sunshine at 35,000 feet, landings through fog and cloud, and slip stations along the route...
This BBC documentary film shows in detail the job of flying one of the giant jets which cruise just below the speed of sound - B.O.A.C. Boeing 707 Flight 900, bound for Beirut and the Far East.
Pilots of three British airlines provide the comment on a professional life which is at the hub of national prestige and international controversy.
