During the crash sequence in the middle of the movie with Christopher Day George's B-17 the plane sbown burning is a B-29. See more »
When the ground crew and medics remove the dead bombardier from the nose of Lt Archer's plane at the end of the first mission, we hear the distinctive sound of glass breaking as they open the nose. The clear portions of the nose of a B-17 or any bomber are made of plexiglas, a plastic which makes an entirely different sound when broken. See more »
A fairly average B-grade movie that is pulled up by a sequence of low flying that is used on more than one occasion throughout the movie for different story line progressions. To see a B-25 coming over the trees and then missing the ground with the right wing by only a few feet is amazing to say the least. Most of the footage in the battle scenes is from war footage and low budget (nowadays) SFX but given the age and being made about the same time as "the Battle Of Britain" it puts up a reasonable performance. Aircraft buffs will like the flying sequences as they always will and for an afternoon diversion it is not too bad. Look out for the maintenance crew chief, Sgt Kreuger a few years before commanding his well known ship the Love Boat.
