North American T-6

Acting sometimes as a Messerschmit 109 straffing retreating troops and civil people refugees ...

LaBatIng 109-6.JPG

... or acting as Junkers Ju 87 Stuka over the beaches.

Hispano Aviación HA-1112-M1L

Buchons -late Messerschmitt Bf 109's Spanish derivative- played the Bf 109's opposition (!), the Hawker Hurricane.

LaBatIng RAF01.JPG

Supermarine Spitfire

Well-known archive footage seen as an overlay.
Same aircraft in other movies at IMPDb: Frequently Seen Aircraft (Military Fixed-Wing).

LaBatIng RAF03.JPG

Unidentified Aircraft

British types acting as Luftwaffe fighters.
Such windshield is shared by Miles Master and Miles Martinet. Very surprising as despite built by thousands, these types were no longer in use and no surviving aircraft is known. Despite seen 'in flight', no evidence of that : the closeup avoids wings, engine and propeller. If really such aircraft, a heavy work to reshape the greenhouse and fairing was done to convert this two seat into a single seat fighter.
Note the I./JG 27 emblem on the cowling ... not yet existing during the summer 1940 despite the unit really took part in the fighting in the early stages of the Battle of Britain !
With a Supermarine Spitfire in the background.

LaBatIng LW05.JPG

Seen again later with different markings (this Puma (?) emblem is close to a Hungarian one)
Note that some emblem are real like the 2/JG 3 or the one of Jagdgeschwader 2 (JG 2) "Richthofen" ; as well as Kampfgeschwader 26 (this one seen on a bomber) :

LaBatIng LW09.JPG

Fictional Bomber

English night bombing of Berlin. The machine gun was usually over the sight ...

LaBatIng RAF04.JPG

Vickers Wellington

Vickers Wellington bomb bay...

LaBatIng RAF05 Berlin.JPG

Heinkel He 111

... but when the same crew is dropping bombs, we see a Heinkel He 111 !

LaBatIng RAF06.JPG

Short S.29 Stirling

Same aircraft in other movies at IMPDb: Frequently Seen Aircraft (Military Fixed-Wing).

LaBatIng RAF07.JPG

Fictional Aircraft

Could be a Vickers Wellington but several points are uncorrect.

LaBatIng RAF08.JPG

Hispano Aviación HA-1112-M1L

Still acting as RAF fighters ... during the night raid (no escort fighter during such mission, especially in 1940 !).

LaBatIng RAF09.JPG

Various code seen on several Buchons during takeoff : RF°T and RF°L and RF°H and RF°N ...
RF was the RAF squadron code used from August 1940 to April 1945 by No. 303 (Polish) Squadron.


CASA 2.111

Among the Lufwaffe raid, if fighters are from British types, the bombers are these Spanish derivatives of the German Heinkel He 111, used in several other movies about the Battle of Britain (IMPDb: Frequently Seen Aircraft (Military Fixed-Wing)).

Same aircraft in other movies at IMPDb: Frequently Seen Aircraft (Military Fixed-Wing).

LaBatIng 13439.jpg

Messerschmitt Bf 109 F

The type reached the front line a year later ... and this model is of poor quality.

LaBatIng 13456.JPG

Junkers Ju 87 B Stuka

Models at first :

LaBatIng 14544.jpg

Perhaps one of Stuka archive footage used in Wrzesien - tak bylo... ?
