Critical reception[edit]

  • TV Guide wrote, "thanks to an outstanding cast, this air-disaster film manages to limp to a landing with its "thriller" status intact." [2]
  • The Radio Times noted, "a star turn for Attenborough, who brings a convincing complexity to the role of bomber and bereft father." [3]
