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.
Everyone dies except Hopkinson (Robertson's crewmate) but the target is destroyed correctly.
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.
