This Royal Canadian Air Force film shows a military plane crash and its aftermath, with one uninjured crewman doing his best to keep injured cohorts alive until help arrives. The title of the film is not certain (because the opening title is missing!) but we believe it is called “No Time to Lose”. The scenario unfolds as the plane’s crew, already low on fuel and with an engine out, learns that their base is completely fogged in. Moments later a second engine failure dooms the plane, and the crew prepares to make a crash landing.
The aircraft seen in the film DG-641, appears to be a real crashed airplane but so far we’ve been unable to identify it. If you have any information please leave it in comments below.
The film has many similarities to a production of the USAF entitled “Live and Land in the Arctic”.
