Anachronisms 

When Von Werra ducks beside the ice-covered road to avoid a car, the car is an early '50's Chrysler product, even though the story is set in the winter of 1940-41.

Whilst being driven to Station HQ at Hucknall he passes two aircraft on the flight line. The first is a DHC-1 Chipmunk which first flew in 1949, nine years after the film is set and four years after the end of WW2.

Continuity 

The bow of the ship that carries von Werra to Canada is seen in close-up travelling symbolically right to left across the screen. Unfortunately, the original stock footage was of a bow travelling left to right and the editor just stuck a piece in, reversed. The numbers are mirrored.

Factual errors 

When Von Werra crash lands, the cockpit canopy hood on the BF-109 mock-up is hinged on the port side and he exits on the starboard side. All actual BF-109's were the opposite; the cockpit canopy hood being hinged on the starboard side with the pilot entering/exiting on the port side.
