Episode Info

Richard Matheson's first full-fledged Twilight Zone script was written for this February 5, 1960, episode. Kenneth Haigh stars as Flight Lt. Decker, a WWI British flying ace who passes through a queer-looking cloud in 1917 -- and ends up on an American Air base in the year 1960. Naturally, no one believes Decker's wild story, but General Harper (Alexander Scourby) and Major Wilson (Simon Scott) are in for quite a jolt when elderly British Air Marshal McKaye (Robert Warwick) pays a visit. The stunt flying sequences were handled by Frank Gifford Tallman. "The Last Flight" received the ultimate accolade when excerpts were included in the Twilight Zone advertisements shown on local CBS affiliates in early 1960.
