+1

Ultimately the movie has to show a profit at the box office, so the script & cast are designed to appeal to as many consumers as possible. Discerning aviation nuts such as ourselves, including real pilots, air combat historians, air force veterans, etc. etc. don't exist in sufficient numbers to rake in the huge receipts needed just to break even. Lucasfilms knows we'll still go, anyway, and hold our noses at the arcade/romance/social message bits while enjoying the more credible air action sequences. Tommy can still bring Suzie Rottencrotch to a date 'n grope movie in the back seats, while Mom 'n Dad can also bring the kids (dunno what the movie rating will be).

Meanwhile, Tiefighter Georgie Lucas will be able to pay off the backers and talent and still have enough left over for his 401K's (yeah, like that's a concern! LOL).

Really? I'm pretty sure the Germans controlled all of Europe. In what alternative universe was that not the case?

Probably for the same reason that Americans were doing the exact same thing.

You're second...
North Africa was a minor sideshow for the Luftwaffe.

And I have no idea what Romania has to do with this. I didn't bring it up.

Nor am I surprised that you won't even attempt to explain whatever idiotic connection you apparently dreamed up.

Geez, guys, what is the point of all this? I guarantee there's no audience watching this side show and cheering for anyone. All anyone here is doing is showing off how much of a jerk they can be.
