Trivia: During the Stuka attack on the radar station, the two Stuka radio controlled models that collide was a complete accident. It looked good so was left in the final version.
Trivia: During the scenes dealing with the dive bomber attacks on the RAF radar stations, the filmmakers used rather un-convincing radio-controlled models to portray the German Ju87 Stukas. Originally, the producers had intended to use Proctor trainers, modified to resemble the Stuka. However the British aviation authorities refused to pass them as airworthy, forcing the producers to resort to using the models.
Trivia: During the attack by Heinkels from Norway across the North Sea English Squadron Leader says "help yourself everybody, there's no fighter escort." In reality the Heinkels had an escort of twin engine Me 110s. In 1968 there were no airworthy Me 110s so the movie ignored them.
Trivia: The RAF Office with the skin grafts that we see later in the film is William Foxley. He was a trainee navigator during WW2 and received those burns attempting to rescue a fellow airman from a crashed bomber.
