Spellbinding! Thanks for the link, SB-1. The color movie of the Battle of Britain was very nice. As with all non-historical footage, allowances must be made for things like Hispano Bushons in place of Messerschmidt Bf-109s, but there just aren't enough of the latter in flyable condition left. You'd think the special effects guys could, by now, make the exploding models look more realistic, but I do tend to pick film inaccuracies to death. Anyway, great fun watching them, thanks again.

Cool!

But I always get a kick out of the credits in BOB where they list how many served and from what country. They list one Israeli even though Israel didn't exist for almost another decade.

Was the pilot a Palestinian?

Well ZG77_Spectre , the movie was made in 1969! Special effects in those days were primative, but they still did a bang up job!
