Flying Officer Trubshaw (Bob Coote) is waiting in the ante room of heaven for his skipper Peter Carter (David Niven), who is supposed to have died when he bailed out of his burning Lancaster without a parachute. But the heavenly WAAF "angel" (Kathleen Byron) has no record of him ["There hasn't been a mistake here for over a thousand years ...') Has he been missed? Great visual design in this scene (spot a young Dickie Attenborough), and the portals looking down from the heavens inspired the design of a Midlands bus station!
