When one of B-17's in the first raid in the film is noticed to be a straggler; the colonel radios the stragglers lead aircraft to get him back up with the group. But when that pilot looks out the window to his left the plane he sees a B-17 thats direction of travel is 90 degrees from that of the formation. That would be a completely lost aircraft not a straggler. And later the next views of that plane have that aircraft just trailing the formation; not going in a completely different direction.

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.
