Beautiful computer work; realistic aviation sequence
18 February 2012 | by (Sacramento CA) – See all my reviews

A realistic dog fight - you hear the purr of the RR Merlin and the different noise of the DB603 - with an unusual ending.

I have heard both and the director went out of his way to get some realism. See why the Luftwaffe pilots called the sound of the DB-603 "The stone crusher" .

I got this as a web address floating on the internet - http://player.vimeo.com/video/31202906?autoplay=1 Quite a nice production - although I question how both got to "this end" - without spoiling it I cannot say more.

Watch it and you be the judge. I enjoyed it so much I bookmarked the address.
