    It looks like a Hispano Aviacion Ha 1112 Buchon
    Basically a G-2 with a Merlin

    It was the only ones they could get a hold of in any number (same with the He-111 :arrow: Casa's :arrow: He-111H with Merlins) as the Spanish were still flying them when the film was made.

    The mass shots were shot over Spain mostly.
    They took 2 Heinkels and 5 Hispanos Buchon 109s to England for the rest of the filming.

    Just to illustrate how the side profile of the Heinkel He 111 changed with Merlins to create the CASA C-2111D.The D was the bomber version while the E was the troop-carrier version.

    Another aircraft utilised for the movie was the Percival Prentice. Four of them were dressed up to represent half-scale Stukas, complete with cranked wings.
