Trivia

RAF Hemswell was a well-established RAF bomber base. The aircrews would not have been billeted in tents, nor would there be a briefing tent. There was brick-built accommodation with heating and all the mod cons. It seems that this film seems to have borrowed its ideas from the SAAF experiences in the western desert campaign. See more »

Goofs

Solid WWII film.
26 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

This a solid air force WWII film. It goes well with the computer games my kids used to play when they were little.

I enjoyed this film, special effects were not up to the par. Was it like this in the real war? Acting is sometimes good, sometimes bad, I am not sure which way it is swaying.

The scenes of crash landing should of been done better, you can see it was some sort of special effect which did not turn out the best.

Plot is similar to any other WWII films of this type.

Camera work, is sometimes excellent, like the scene when they are running in the forest. Sometimes not so good, like in the plane sometimes.

If you like good WWII action film this one is for you.
