Erroneous stock footage


During the big raid you can see stock footage of German pilot punching out. Right after that you will see a quick to Second shot of P-47 firing its machine guns.
As we know the P-47 did not have the range to get into Germany the way the P-51 is did.Anyway, bomber escorts were deemed unnecessary as it was thought that the B-17 and the B-24 had enough armament to keep them safe at that time.

the P47 shot is also used to represent German fighters shooting at the bombers.





Why can't you wretched prey creatures understand that the Universe doesn't owe you anything!?

The Star insignia is quite evident. The same shot was used three times,once in reverse.
Because a lot of extras were affiliated with making this movie I figured that Hollywood this time would have been a little bit more careful in the stock footage that they used.

Not extras..ex vets. Darn this voice recognition.
