633 Squadron DVD cover.

Movie (1964)

Starring:
Cliff Robertson (Wing Cmdr. Roy Grant)
George Chakiris (Lt. Erik Bergman)
Maria Perschy (Hilde Bergman)
Harry Andrews (Air Vice Marshal Davis)


When Norwegian resistance leader Lieutenant Erik Bergman reports the location of a German V-2 rocket fuel plant, the Royal Air Force's 633 Squadron is assigned the mission to destroy it.

The plant is in a seemingly-impregnable location beneath an overhanging cliff at the end of a long, narrow fjord lined with anti-aircraft guns. The only way to destroy the plant is by collapsing the cliff on top of it, a job for 633 Squadron's fast and manoeuvrable de Havilland Mosquitos.


De Havilland DH98 Mosquito

De Havilland Mosquito, at least six examples seen in the movie. Three in flying condition, some used for static or taxiing scenes and one destroyed in a airfield crash and explosion.

North American B-25 Mitchell

When filmed the plane was in use in a peace-time role, possibly in RAF Transport Command by the white upper fuselage.

SNCAN Nord 1002 Pingouin II

Same airplane is used in Mosquito Squadron - IMPDb: Frequently Seen Aircraft.

This pretending Messerschmitt Bf.108 is actually the post war French built and Renault engined version S.N.C.A.N. Nord 1002 'Pingouin' II from 1946.
