Corrected entry: At the end of the 'bridge' sequence in which Bruno and Willy attempt to outfly each other, Willy's plane strikes a stone tower beyond the bridge and crashes in open ground. In the next scene, where Bruno is confronted by his commanding officer as to the circumstances of Willy's death, Bruno responds that he 'flew into the trees.'

Correction: Bruno was obviously deliberately lying in order to conceal the true facts of Willy's death, ie. that they were trying to outfly one another.

Mistakes

In the scene where Jeremy Kemp and George Peppard are playing daredevil in their planes and Kemp's plane hits a brick tower there is a shot of the plane plummeting to the ground. The alert viewer can see the shiny metal wires that were used to support and guide the plane on its way to the ground.

Trivia

The number of the Berlin hotel room Bruno Stachel stays in the night before he is to be awarded the Blue Max is '22', which equals the number of planes he has shot down. He needed only 20 to win the award, but he had to shoot down two more in order to make up for Willy's kills that he claimed as his own earlier in the film.
