At Chilford Green Aerodrome, a small, privately owned airfield in the heart of England, the transportation of cargo takes place daily. But this is no ordinary cargo – as 18-year-old Chris Lomax (Louis Cabot) is to discover.

A keen motor mechanic whose enthusiasm for aircraft has prompted him to get a job at Chilford, Chris’s self-reliance and questioning mind are soon causing consternation for his employers.

As he gets alarmingly close to the true nature of the airfield’s operations, it becomes clear that Chris – and his young colleague, Sarah (Sue Holderness) – could be in serious danger.

Fly Into Danger was a seven-part action series aimed at a younger audience, however, its spectacular and rapidly paced airborne sequences ensured that the series appealed to viewers of all ages.

Written by Roy Russell (The Saint, The Queen Street Gang) and boasting a strong cast, Fly Into Danger was originally made in colour, but only two episodes still exist in that format. Black and white telerecordings exist of the other five episodes.

The aerodrome scenes were filmed at Halfpenny Green airfield at Stourbridge in Staffordshire.
