TV Guide gave the film one out of four stars, and wrote, "the novelty of four directors did nothing out of the ordinary in terms of what appears on the screen." while The Cinema Museum noted "a tantalizing glimpse of the (Brooklands) airfield and some of the flying that took place there before the Second World War."
