Curtiss SB2C Helldivers are shown in use alongside the Grumman TBF Avengers just prior to and during the Midway portions of the film. The Helldiver was not employed at Midway or prior to it. See more »
Movie gives authentic view of TBM carrier torpedo bombers of mid-WWII. The tensions before the battle as well as the battle and aftermath are well covered.
Acting is down-to-earth and realistic in terms of Combat Aircrew and Deck crews. More of a 'documentary' and memory bank for those who flew...and those who died! The USA won the battle AND the War. The TBM survived and saw service in the Korean War.
A REAL FLAG WAVER!!!
