Cabin Pressure, Series 4 Episode 2 of 6

Comedy by John Finnemore about the wing and a prayer world of a tiny, one plane, charter airline staffed by two pilots: one on his way down, and one who was never up to start with. Whether they're flying squaddies to Hamburg, metal sheets to Mozambique, or an oil exec's cat to Abu Dhabi, no job is too small - but many, many jobs are too difficult.

Episode 2:
As Carolyn and Martin turn a short hop into a long climb, Douglas and Arthur get to play with an airport.
