Haha its kinda a habit i have. First thing I do when seeing historic recreations is look for mistakes. Its understandable when using real rare planes, films like "Battle of britain" with its late model spits and spanish Buchons as the 109s and "Top Gun" with its fake Mig F-5s. My guess is that the cgi models are stock from a previous film, maybe pearl harbor? that would explain it.

edit: curious, I had a look at Pearl Habour's cgi 109s. Theyre not the same. Pearl Harbor has Me109F's

Maybe they're supposed to be the remnants of Hungarian fighter pilots? (The Hungarian's did use E's in '41-43 on the Eastern Front, with F/Gs as well...)

Yeah I'd be pretty sick to my stomach if I or someone else wrecked that RC Plane. Lot of money down the drain with one failed flick of the controls.

And they even made up the name for the MiGs. I've never seen or read anything on a MiG-28 before. (Silly 80s Flight movies.)

From the excellent youtube channel "UnknownWW2InColor"..

Look the relic of a Me-163-Komet at the end of the video!!!













Here we see even the famous "three antennas" near Dover!
Some original films suggest how the environment is faithfully reproduced in IL2..

This isn't a video.. more of a slide show really.

It's bombers in a whole lot of trouble. I'm amazed some of these were still flying...



And this is only 2 seconds long but, that's how quickly your life can take an unexpected turn.
