The code letters "DF A" seen on an aircraft in this film (e.g., 54:58) are the identification codes for the famous Memphis Belle, the subject of a widely acclaimed William Wyler film. Memphis Belle flew with the 91st Bomb Group. The makers of this film did a good job of copying the style of the letters, which was a nonstandard style. See more »
Near the beginning of the movie when they are attacked by Me 109's, there is a view of a wing with three machine guns firing from the wing. No 109 had three internally mounted MG's in each wing. See more »
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.
