The Heroes of Telemark

Corrected entry: When the glider crashes you hear aeroplane sounds and then it explodes like a bomb. A glider has no engine or fuel tanks.

Correction: The glider is being towed by the tow aeroplane which develops an engine fault, and they both crash. It is the tow plane that explodes.

Factual error: The daylight air-raid on the Norwegian Heavy Water plant in 1942 was done by Boeing B17G bombers, with the distinctive chin gun turrets. These planes did not come into service until 1944, when they were introduced to counter the head-on attacks by German fighters.
