I must admit that personally I don't get science fiction, but understand that many love it and have the facility to suspend disbelief when confronted by such tosh as teleportation etc.
There is artistic licence and there is taking the p*ss. Dunkirk's Spitfire was the latter.

Science fiction is obviously and knowingly fiction - comparing a film attempting to replay a real event with Star Trek is frankly pretty silly.

It's very easy to remove items like TV aerials in post production - I do it on my home computer for my own movies.

BTW I do apologise with my apprentice obsession with French TV aerials...having spent a several hours this spring replacing an old French UHF set up on our chimney with a modern "TNT" set up....and then had to clamber back up onto the roof twice to tweak the darned thing following strong winds it is subject close to my heart...I am now available as a consultant to the film industry on antenna, French, TNT....

Dunkirk (2017) - IMDb

Heard of the theory about multiple parallel universes?
I rather like the spitfire in the one where Germany successfully invaded Britain.
