MAYDAY is a 12 minute black comedy based on true events at Humberside Airport on the 9th October 2013.


Pete is a pilot and Frank has never flown. Today is Frank's 70th birthday and Pete takes him up flying, but mid flight Pete passes out. At a small airfield, Roger picks up the Mayday call and has to teach Frank to fly mid air.

MAYDAY centres around the radio conversation between Frank and Roger as it veers from nail-biting tension to laugh-out-loud funny and back again.
