    I´ve been watching a trailer of Taken, at the screen says something like "Germany, 1944", or something alike. The 3D animation of the air battle is incredible. I just wonder what any Emils doing there in 1944.

    It means that film makers haven't done their homework.

    Yes, I believe it is so. There's only one short scene in the first episode showing air battle (Bf 109s attacking B-17 formation), but that is all. Nothing more.

    It's Spielberg's 2002 sci fi mini series about Alien abductions (hence the title "Taken"). Here's a link to YouTube clip containing the aforementioned air battle (the scene is actually quite good if we disregard the fact that Bf 109Es were phased out of front line service long before 1944):
