With its black cowling, here on wheels as SOC-2(usually on floats as SOC-1 or SOC-4).
Sorry about the poor screenshot ! The four engines, twin tails and yellow wings with a natural metal fuselage is a Consolidated PB2Y Coronado.
Another one is seen in flight among the flypast at the end of the movie (sorry for the small size of this screenshot).
Seen too through a model.
Fitted with a cowling design for a radial engine and acting as the latest british fighter !
Some others are seen near the Consolidated PB2Y Coronado (one in the Blue Grey paint scheme, the other one in the old Chrome Yellow -like the Coronado-).
Between the red cowling and the yellow wing of two Grumman F3F.
Northrop BT-1 of VB-5 "Red devils" but wearing the VS-41 badge. Only 54 of this aircraft have been built.
Another one more colorfull (the blind canopy is yellow and in place of the engine, the pre-war US roundel).
One of the numerous objects linked to aviation seen throughout the insider scenes . This unidentified shape (which looks like a Wedell-Williams Special) worn the sentence : "Bachelor Officiers Quarters / Naval Air Station Pearl Harbor".
The type entered service in 1943. In 1941, it was in flight testing since the beginning of the year.
