This is why I can't stand to watch a lot of the old 'air combat' movies-apparently, the Hollywood studios were given a few standard shots of air action-the P-40 wing guns firing, the Avenger dropping a torpedo, some Corsairs releasing either drop tanks or napalm, and of course, the two gunsight kills: one of a Zero bursting into flame, and one of the FW getting its wing sawed off. There were others, but you get the gist.

They were doing their best, I know, but it was always a buzzkill to see the wrong airplanes in the movie. I can't stand 'em.
