Had to look up Mallaig as it sounded familiar. I may not have been there but definitely been on the ferry from Oban to Lochboisdale as I lived in Baile a' Mhanaich (to use it's proper spelling) when I was little.
Mallaig station, Scotland. July 1980

A great series! Fond memories of the 1970s during school holidays! Unfortunately none of that footage is from the actual series. It is just a tribute/recreation using flight simulator footage with the original titles.Opening credits from the 1960s French TV show Les chevaliers du ciel (known as The Aeronauts in the UK). A show about a crack French airforce squadron. produced 1967-70
Note contrails at 0:49, and aerodynamic trails at 1:11
There are a fair few episodes up on Youtube, I'll relive my boyhood over the next few weeks and see if I can spot any others
Ah right, I was 6 when this was on telly so memories are a bit blurred, still, loving the episodes on youtube, and will report contrails when I spot them.A great series!

Side note: that was filmed on the famous Iverson Movie Ranch, near Chatsworth, California. The distinctive rock there is shown (from the other side) in the title image of a website detailing its history.
