1941, the Third Reich seems to be winning the war. Luftwaffe (air force) general Harry Harras enjoys the good life as highly respected technician and Berlin ministry/HQ official.
In this movie, these aircrafts (Swedish designation : B 3) are trying to represent a fictional aircraft industry building Mohringen Mo-xx. They used several convincing pictures of Swedish Air Force Junkers Ju 86 K which were in operation until 1955. These Ju 86s had been built under license in a SAAB plant in the 1940’s as SAAB B 3. These ones might be some of those Swedish built Ju 86.

The General's flat is full of memories, pictures and models of aircraft.
