Filmed in 2002 - Released in 2003

Nationwide started charter operations in 1991 ; scheduled domestic service was started in 1995. Today the airline operates a fleet of more than 20 aircraft featuring the Boeing 727 and Boeing 737 with service cities all around South Africa as well as to international destinations. Plans for long haul European service are being studied.

This program takes you for a selection of flights on the B727-100 and B737-200 to 8 destinations serviced from the Johannesburg International Airport hub including Capetown, Durban and Sun City plus a pair of international destinations in Zambia. We also get a chance to ride the Bac 1-11, about to be retired from scheduled service in South Africa.

This DVD was sold out for quite some time and after my first viewing of it I can see why. It's very rare in this day and age to see a BAC111-400, 727-100 or 737-200 operating in and out of your local airport yet alone have the opportunity to fly in one! This DVD features the operations of Nationwide Airlines to destinations in South Africa and Zambia onboard the BAC111-400, 727-100 and 737-200.
Some of the segments I enjoyed in this DVD were the flight to East London on the BAC111-400. This is a rare aircraft and it was quite a privilege to be taken on a walk around and to see firsthand how it is operated. The flights to Livingstone, George, Capetowne, Durban and Lusaka were flown on the Boeing 727-100 which is another unique and extremely rare aircraft. Highlights from this segment include an external walk around of the aircraft, cabin service, cockpit presentations and very scenic views from the cockpit. One of the views I enjoyed the most was the view of Victoria Falls on takeoff from Livingstone.
The 737 segment of the DVD featured many of the same highlights as the previous flights and offers a host of scenic views from the cockpit. Overall this is a fantastic DVD that features the operation of classic aircrafts in passenger service. As an aviation enthusiast with an appreciation for the classics, this is a DVD worth having.

What a great DVD showing us so much of South Africa and its scenery, Zambia too as well as some classics in the 737-200 the 727-100 and the BAC 111 which is so rare to see in the skies these days. I also liked the fact that this video was longer than others so you really got great value for your purchase. The airline recently acquired its first 767-300 from Air Canada so this should be interesting for it will allow them to operate longer routes. It would be nice to see a program with the 767. A great DVD and must have in my opinion.   Jeff Schapira, CANADA

Hello, just wanted to say, how much I really enjoyed both The European and Nationwide Airlines DVDs featuring the BAC 1-11. I flew on the BAC 1-11s for many years whislt in service with Quebecair, British Airways and British Caledonian. It has brought back many found memories. You produced great work.  Benoit Plamondon, CANADA

The Nationwide DVD is an absolute classic! Never before have I seen such an interesting documentary about 3 classic aircraft. The scenery of South Africa is just stunning from the aircraft. The pilot does a very good job of giving a cockpit explanation in the 737-200, and the flight from the cabin was amazing as the thrust bucket reversers kicked in after landing. The flight in the thuderstorm was really cool to watch, as the pilot struggled to keep the aircraft straight on the take-off run. I have watched this over 10 times and still notice new details and learn new things. Coverage of the 727 is especially interesting, as it still needs a Flight Engineer. An absolute must, highly recommended.

Since purchasing the "Nationwide Airlines" DVD, I have watched it at least a dozen times. I must thank the Flight Engineer for his contribution. That includes his walk around and his detailed explanation of the flight engineer panel on the Boeing 727-100. But special thanks should go to Captain Warren for his contribution. That includes a tour of the 737-200 cockpit. I enjoyed all of the 737 flights on this DVDs and thanks to all the crew members.

My 2nd DVD, Nationwide Airlines and I have to agree with all previous reviews this is a classic for anyones collection.Never having flown on a BAC111 this was indeed a treat and up in the cockpit as well WOW!. It was great to back on board the 727 and 737. Sights and Sounds are first class.I am ready to obtain my next DVD.Keep up the great work.   James Gibson, CANADA

This DVD is a classic!!!! WOW!!!! Three great aircrafts (B727-100, B737-200, and Bac-1-11) of which are disappearing from airline inventories. I bought this DVD to see the B727 but was equally impressed with the B737 and Bac1-11. Outstanding scenery of South Africa. Great briefing on the airline history by Mr. Charles Hoare and also a great briefing of the B737 cockpit by Captain Phillip Warren. I also enjoyed the views from in the cabin of the B737. Outstanding. This is a must have DVD that viewers will watch many, many times. Thank you so much World Air Routes.   Stan Lenox, USA

Just received my copy, 4th in my collection and by far the best. The 737 cockpit presentation is great and the walkarounds informative. The quality of the material just gets better.    Siegfried Schuttler, SOUTH AFRICA

I can only agree with Greg Rowland ; North Hollywood CA, USA. Wonderful DVD. Great to see the smaller airports in South Africa. Being from South Africa, it is great to it from the air on such a special DVD.

The Nationwide dvd is a great presentation of 3 classic jet airliner types. A comprehensive program including narrated walkarounds of all 3 types and cockpit presentations on 2 of them. A highlight is the flight in the cabin of a 737-200 from Livingstone to Jo'burg. Interesting and exotic scenery add to the enjoyment and the lightning flashes during the night time return flight from East London to Jo'burg aboard the Bac 1-11 are wild! The World Air Routes series is excellent!
