Factual error: When the bombs are being taken down the lane, in the background where the lane meets the road a white mini can be seen passing the entrance.
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.
Factual error: As the special bombs are being towed onto the base, a modern white saloon car is seen driving past on the road.
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.
Trivia: All of the members of the Norwegian resistance movement (the Ling) are ambushed and wiped out by the Germans on their way to attack the defences. This would suggest that Erik Bergman must have broken under torture and given the information about the upcoming attacks to the Germans - allowing them to know where and when to ambush the resistance men. So the Wing Commander's murder mission was a waste of effort (or at least too late).
