    I remember seing a tv show,an episode of a supernatural/mystery series whose title I don't remember,where the crew of a modern day(70's or 80's) airliner flying to Berlin picked up conversations over the radio between World War 2 Raf Bomber crews.
    Fascinating, can you remember if this was American or British? and to open this up wider, can anybody identify it?

    Might be Jaycad's earlier suggestion Return Flight, an episode from the 1972 BBC series Dead of Night. It is currently available on Youtube.

    "No Highway", 1951. Not brilliant but very watchable and it has James Stewart, Marlene Dietrich, Glynis Johns, Jack Hawkins, Kenneth More... and Janette Scott in a juvenile role

    Another Stephen King one: The Night Flier (1997) Obscure, but pretty creepy!

    Arh yes, this is the stuff. I knew The Twilight Zone wouldn't let me down. You can always count on that series to come up with a plot/story that caters to your wishes. TV gold in my opinion. Thanks for the episode suggestions.

    "Destination Nightmare", an episode of the unbroadcast but readily-available series called THE VEIL, which is hosted by Boris Karloff, who also appears in the episode.

    The Poirot episode "Death in the Clouds" should fit the bill.

    The programme I remembered is indeed Return Flight from the BBC Dead Of Night series.I watched earlier tonight together with A Woman sobbing(which wasn't so good) after searching them out on Youtube.Worth having a look if you haven't already done so.

    I haven't seen it in a good while, but it used to show up regularly on the tube. What I remember most was Stewart had that lost puppy look and Dietrich looked like she wanted to jump in his lap and devour him. That isn't what the story was about, but that is the vibe they were bringing.

    I would second the earlier recommendation for Cone Of Silence.

    Sorry a little late to this thread but if you are still on the lookout for aircraft based stuff Poppy...
    How about 'Always' (1989) with Holly Hunter and Richard Dreyfuss - Directed by Spielberg,it is a remake of 'A guy named Joe' (1943) with Spencer Tracy and Van Johnson but with the wartime bomber scenario replaced by the cast flying classic Water bomber aircraft including Douglas A26 Invader,Catalina(PBY) and Fairchild twin boomer from memory.
    A great little film that Dreyfuss and Spielberg really wanted to make... one of my favourites
