One of the 400 built after WW2 for the French Air Force.
With the AAC 1 Toucan on the left.
Acting as a british transport, the next one wears a false registration (G-AFDX).
Shot probably used again in Les carabiniers.
Perhaps a Supermarine Spitfire.
This shot from the end of the movie.
A Dornier Do 17 Z forward gunner is firing.
Same archive of aircraft in other film at IMPDb: Frequently Seen Aircraft.
Same aircraft in other movies at IMPDb: Frequently Seen Aircraft.
During a short scene, a four engine flies low over the frozen sea. Fw 200 or C-54 ?
Probably a Handley Page H.P.52 Hampden.
Jump ! Commandos react when light turns green.
Several are seen towed by the next two bomber types.
Probably a upper wing three engine burning. The three blade propelers and engine cowlings are probably a late aircraft of this formula (Savoia Marchetti ?).
Sorry for the poor quality of this creenshot. At left, in the distance, a Douglas DC-3. At right, a Lockheed model 10 or 14.
Waterborne (RAF type M ?).
Perhaps two Messerschmitt 210/410 in the distance. The wing on the foreground is part of another type of aircraft.
