Corrected entry: At one point, the German train that has been hijacked by Allied prisoners is attacked by "German" aircraft. The planes are clearly not WWII aircraft or even replicas. They are modern civilian planes - probably Beechcraft, painted camouflage and bearing German insignia.

Correction: The answer is not entirely correct. The aircraft are copies of the Messerschmitt ME-108, a side by side, two seat liaison aircraft that resembles the ME-109 fighter in basic fuselage design. The movie "fighters" are, more than likely, postwar French built copies by the Morane Company. The post war French AF used them as did some other European countries.
