|Sky Riders / Nebeští jezdci|
|Directed by||Jindřich Polák|
|Written by||Filip Jánský|

|Distributed by||Ústřední půjčovna filmů|
The film tells the story of the crews of No. 311 Squadron RAF, which was mainly crewed by escaped Czechoslovak airmen, and their bombing raids in the Second World War. It was filmed at Klecany military airfield just north of Prague.
The movie is based on the 1964 novel Nebeští jezdci by Czech World War II RAF and Soviet Air Force air gunner Richard Husmann, writing as Filip Jánský. Part of the inspiration for the novel was the story of František (Frankie) Truhlář, a member of Guinea Pig Club, No. 311 Squadron RAF gunner and later No. 312 (Czechoslovak) Squadron RAF pilot. In 1969 Hodder & Stoughton published an English translation of the book as Riders in the Sky.
Nebeští jezdci is often referred as the best Czech war film.
