The first two pictures show a 'de Havilland D.H.89A Dragon Rapide Mk.6', which started its life in 1939 as the RAF version 'Dominie' (Reg.No. NF875). The third picture shows another Dragon Rapide/Dominie.

Actually it's not a chase. There's a Lancia Thema, Peugeot 505, Audi 100, MB 190 (W201) and BMW 5-series (E28) racing against each other in a race track. Almost all of the cars get destroyed (they were quite new when filmed!). There's a scene where the MB 190 does a huge jump and slides with it's nose a few metres. Just WOW :D

I haven't seen the film for a long time. The film is rare because it flopped big time. I just wish I could see the racing scene again.

this was one of the few ..british tv shows (in this time period) ..to actually go on location.! (They filmed all around Europe ...unlike earlier British TV shows ..which just showed 'Stock/archive footage'..and then filmed the close up shots in a back lot London film studio.!! (there are some notes with this DVD set ..saying how hard it was ..in those days ...to move about in Europe ... get reservations for Stars & film crews etc... tough long days.!) ...when I come across these notes again..I'll add them to the top of this page. ;)

Do you know if they went on location to Czechoslovakia or faked it somewhere else? I imagine that the Communist government didn't want western capitalist film crews running round, although the prospect of earning hard currency might have persuaded them to open up a bit.

Milos Forman did go home to make Amadeus in Prague but that wasn't until 1984. In 1972, four years after the Prague Spring, the authorities would probably have been much more nervous about westerners.

It seems to me a small film unit was there (only the contessa visited a friend to return a stolen item)..but quite a few scenes shown (..I've not checked on the net to see if this was real ... but my guess is they did film.!)

Thanks for doing the Prague captures, stronghold. I went there ten years ago and reccognise a lot of the locations. Of course it helps that they're famous landmarks. :)

Incidentally Prague airport will appear in the next Bond film, Casino Royale, posing as Miami. It's been extended in the last few years and looks completely different from how I remember it:

Many thanks to Steve for this very nice pictures of cars, planes, famous europeen sites, girls, hovercraft ;)
About plane, I love this DH Dragon Rapide!
The Swissair jet is rare Convair 990 Coronado 1962
The PanAm jet is common Boeing 747-100
...and the front view jet might be a Boeing 727, I guess... though I thought also about a Hawker Siddeley Trident, but quite not sure
