Corrected entry: As the Squadron is getting ready for their mission, the hero gets in a jeep to drive to his plane. He actually travels about 10 yards and stops at his plane. Couldn't he have walked and saved the fuel? There is a war on after all.
Other mistake: A lot of the aircrew are wearing a 1939-45 Star medal ribbon. This medal was obviously issued after the war's end.
Trivia: Vintage aircraft fans do not hold this film in very high regard. During filming a perfectly serviceable Mosquito was wrecked deliberately for a crash scene. Considering the scarcity of flying Mossies it's considered almost a criminal act in the vintage aviation world.
