http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif I found this site with the Goof's and other info from Military Aviation Movie's.
It has some interesting info on Flick's from Ace of Wings 1927 to Flight of the Intruder 1991... and more.

Here is a few remarks from the site.


Flight of the Intruder
1991 *v
USN- D. Glover; Vietnam A-6 Intruder crew go on a personal strike "Downtown" to Hanoi. Shot on INDEPENDANCE, (also RANGER?), in Kauai, Hawaii and Savannah Georgia.

A-6E Intruders of VA-122, 128, 126, 165. C-2B Greyhound, SH-3 Sea King, A-3 Skywarrior, F-4 Phantom (both on deck only), A-7E Corsair II, MiG 17, and two (AD-4N and AD-6) Skyraiders. The Intruder markings seem to be Vietnam-era unit marks over the current low-vis scheme and don't look right. Background aircraft are clearly 1990's low-vis.


Flying Leathernecks
1951 *v
USMC- Disliked John Wayne as hard commander. F4U-4's Corsairs of VMF-232, F6F-5 Hellcats of VMT-2 from MCAS El Toro (as "Wildcats"!). Many F6F, F6F-5N hulks. SNJ as ("Zeros") PBY-6A Catalina, later blown up. R5D (C-47), R6D (C-54).
