OK as entertainment, but disapointing overall for anyone with any aviation knowledge of the period.

Some things that made me go 'arrrgghghh'.
  • Spitfire pilot with no idea of deflection shooting.
  • Thinks it a great idea to close the canopy before ditching. Then doesn't know about the crowbar clipped to the door just for use in opening a jammed canopy.
  • Aircraft code leter missing on the spitfires. I have looked up the squadron code 'LC'. It was for RAF Fetwell which was a bomber station, so no spitfires there.
  • A spitfire that can glide forever. A competition glider pilot that saw the movie with me now wants to trade his high performance sailplane for a spitfire!
Some good air to air photograpy let down by the details.
/pedant mode off.
