Why were the five passengers so keen to leave Windhoek?
What I find hard to believe in this movie is why were the five passengers so keen to leave Windhoek in the first place?
Look at it logically why would five perfectly sensible people whose connecting flight had been delayed until the morning decide to charter a private two engine boneshaker to fly them from Windhoek to Johannesburg in the middle of the night (and pay extra money for it) when they were scheduled to take off in the morning anyhow. It wasn't as if they had to hang around in a departure lounge all night they had been given overnight accommodation in a first class hotel. Susannah York was taking a shower for goodness sake! I would have been happy to spend a relaxing night in a hotel room and wait for the re-scheduled flight which was at 9.00 am!
I know it's a minor point but it is the only illogical event in an otherwise excellent and convincing movie. For me it would have made the film one 100 per cent perfect if those five people had a justifiable reason for taking a charter flight in the middle of the night.
