Great planes of fire

Eight Hill­siders face death in the face when they crash-land.

TV Plus (South Africa) - - 7DE LAAN -

A game re­serve get­away turns into a hor­ror show on Fri­day 7 July when Rickus (An­dré Lot­ter) and seven of his pals’ quick flight to Mpumalanga goes down in flames. In­stead of re­lax­ing fun, view­ers will be left ask­ing: will they all sur­vive?

7de Laan’s plane crash site is straight out of a Hol­ly­wood dis­as­ter movie.

Pi­lot Suna (Anelle Bester) is one of the worst-in­jured – that’s a tree branch stick­ing through her stom­ach!

In the sto­ry­line, the crash sur­vivors eat in­sects and other bugs. The cast didn’t have to do the Fear Fac­tor thing – the “meals” were just props.

A lot of the scenes were filmed at night – that meant long days for the cast, who were on set from 17:00 un­til 04:00 in the morn­ings.

Cre­ative di­rec­tor Ro­han Horn and Vanilla Sky Avi­a­tions or­gan­ised a Cessna Car­a­van air­craft but Ro­han re­veals that “the scenes were shot in a hangar at Won­der­boom Mil­i­tary Air Base with green­screen. The cast never ac­tu­ally flew”.

The make-up artists added loads of scrapes and scratches to the cast, like An­dré (Rickus) in this pic.
