Quotes from

Peter Penrose: I'm afraid I'm strictly amateur.
Flight Lt. David Archdale: There aren't any amateurs and professionals anymore, just good pilots and bad pilots. The good pilots stay alive and the bad ones don't. And that's not true anymore either.


Flight Lt. David Archdale: [reciting] Less said the better, the bill unpaid, dead letter. No roses at the end of Smith, my friend. Last words don't matter, for there are none to flatter. Words will not fill the post of Smith the ghost. For Smith, our brother, only son of loving mother, the ocean lifted, stirred, leaving no word.


Squadron Leader Sil Carter: Well, chaps, you don't need me to tell you, the target's the same as yesterday, and the day before, and the day before that.

Facts about

The poem "For Johnny" read by John Mills is as follows: "Do not despair, For Johnny-head-in-air; He sleeps as sound, As Johnny underground. Fetch out no shroud, For Johnny-in-the-cloud; And keep your tears, For him in after years. Better by far, For Johnny-the-bright-star, To keep your head, And see his children fed."
First cinema feature of Murray Matheson.
