Hey! I watched that programme in work (i didnt get caught!) and I thought it was great! I didnt realise the aircraft was so versatile, and living under the approach for BHD (where they were all built) made it all the more interesting for me. The way the people talked about it reminded me of the way they talk about the DC-3. ie: the only replacement for a DC3 (or skyvan!) is another DC3!

Was pretty good, certainly better than many other aviation related documentaries.
I was surprised at the claim they brought the aircraft up to 29,000 feet.

Gee that's being kind! I would have said from the "backyard shed with wings added as an afterthought design school".
"I was surprised at the claim they brought the aircraft up to 29,000 feet."
Good grief! How long did that take and how come they didn't run out of fuel?
Sounds like it was worthwhile watch.

I think the Skyvan was the box the 1900D came in.
