The aircraft that carries Liam Devlin (Donald Sutherland's character) is a SIPA S.11, a French military trainer that was based on the German wartime Arado Ar.96. It resembled its German origins quite closely, but was powered by a Renault engine that altered its engine cowling and intake, while the cockpit and canopy was more streamlined in shape than the original German design.

When Mrs. Gray fires a revolver at Pamela, who is escaping in a car, she is holding the gun at waist level. This results in very inaccurate fire, since the pistol is not being aimed. Nevertheless, she scores several hits on the vehicle, which in reality would have been nearly impossible to do. See more »

This is an exceptional war movie about a supposed plot by the Nazis to kidnap Churchill. Michael Caine is a German officer who speaks perfect English and leads a team of paratroopers who are disguised as Poles. The cover story is that they are a Free Polish regiment on maneuvers in Britain. At the same time, IRA leader Donald Sutherland helps lay the groundwork for their arrival.
The story is very complex and the acting is first-rate. Provided you don't think too much, this is a highly entertaining film. Sure, the Nazis didn't attempt such a mission, but I enjoyed this alternative history movie.
