Trivia

As there was only one B-17 available, the shot of the bombers in formation was made using multiple exposures. (The same technique was used to show the Colonial Battlestar fleet at the beginning of Battlestar Galactica: Saga of a Star World (1978).) See more »

Quotes

Narrator: Friendly fire - that's what it's called nowadays. One wonders who could have invented such a ludicrously cosmetic term for such lethal mistakes. In the Britain of 1942, these episodes were offically known in military circles as balls ups, and sadly they happened all to often. And not just to the British. These incidents afflicted both of the opposing forces - and the Germans too, I shouldn't wonder!

Over Here extra
26 September 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I had a 'few'bit parts in this,from running around the airfield when being bombed and strafed by the Messerschmitts,to being one of the actual pilots on the B-17. I can be seen exiting the aircraft on the hardstand and walking towards the camera.Another scene of me is in the briefing room where we are being introduced to the 'English' way of life & speaking.I can be seen in the 3rd row back in full flying gear(sheepskin flying jacket and trousers)chewing gum.The room was made to 'Look cold' but being under the lights for hours filming and in all that gear it was rather hot.When not filming i had the chance to talk to some of the main actors and have a look at the Messerschmitts parked up in the old hangers.I also had the privileged of having a chat to the Late Mark Hanna ( one of the Messerschmidt pilots). How i got to be an 'extra' in this was because i was working for the USAF at RAF Alconbury in the 10th Trans, Yup i think i was the only British person from there to take part in this very funny TV film.
