    Found this link on another forum and its too good not to share. You may recognise the work of the guy who made this short fantastic peice of work....he did the 'Merlins' (Mosquito and Spitfires), and a number of WW2 related clips

    Good CGI but I'm not sure how accurate the depiction was.

    More accurate than Hollywood could ever dream of doing it! They'd unable to do this without throwing in 45 minutes of lovey dovey in these 6+ minutes!

    Would have been better with a better sound track instead of the Celine Dion puke music.

    Really beautiful work. Looks like a film about any air battle should be able to be made with that quality although I question some of the accuracy of the actual combat.

    Could they've been listening to her granny singing, in their headphones while flying?

    Seen that clip before pretty good representation...primary Zero EII-102 was flown by Shotaicho (section leader) PO 1c Tetsuo Iwamoto he became one of Japans top aces...The White fuselage stripes indicated the Zeroes were from the IJN Zuikaku..(single white strip for Shokaku)

    The only primary error were the Zeroes with the 'V' codes on the tail and Blue diagonal fuselage stripes, these were from the land based Tainan Kokutai whom did not take part in this carrier aircraft v carrier aircraft battle.
