German propaganda film, telling a story of bomber crews, taking part in invasion on Poland and attacks on the British shipping. One of the crew, forced to bail out will be save by a Heinkel 115.
Seen throughout the whole movie.
During the air battle, the left Jumo 211F is hit, starts smoking and then stopped, the propellers feathered. More actions display all the stations.
Probably the only movie shot featuring this czech fighter. Acting under the polish colors to simulate a PZL (monoplane !) fighter.
Same action reused in other movies at IMPDb: Frequently Seen Aircraft.
On the ground, the bombing has destroyed the base. Several aircrafts are burning. Through the smoke, the shape of some polish bomber PZL 37B are visible.
(probably) Another unique shot among the film industry story.
Interesting view showing side by side the Junkers Ju 87 A (front) and the Junkers Ju 87 B (behind).
Same aircraft in other movies at IMPDb: Frequently Seen Aircraft.
Send to rescue the downed crew.
Start of the BMW 132K engine.
France and Norge have had this Curtiss P-36 variant in their Air Force inventory and some dozens fall in the german hands at the armistice. One of them is used to act as a british Curtiss Mohawk (despite it was only used for advanced training by the S.A.A.F. or fighter on the CBI theater but never on the European theater).
