The Tuskegee Airmen

Corrected entry: During the pilot training segment, Lt. Glenn informs the men that he is the only aviator with combat experience, however, Major Joy is wearing a purple heart, which is awarded only for a blood-drawing injury received during combat.

Correction: He is the only black aviator with combat experience.


Continuity mistake: In Morocco, when Lee, Capby, and Roberts take off, they still have their external fuel tanks under their wings, indicating they have not entered combat. As they are flying and do their mission, they have dropped their tanks. But after Lee says "let's head for home," you see one Mustang landing, external tanks and all.
