Facts about

Three of the airworthy Mosquitoes used in the film were TT35 models (target tug versions of the B35 bomber). These were made to resemble FB MkVI (fighter bomber) versions by painting over the clear perspex nosecones and side windows and fitting dummy machine gun barrels. The fourth airworthy Mosquito was a T3 model with a solid nose which only required the fitting of dummy gun barrels.
The Norwegian underground receives a message in Morse code telling them that "M Day" has been moved up to 0630 hours. It is actually sent in good Morse code, but the entire text of the message reads only "MX" and there is no sign-off.
The German "fighters" were actually 4-seat Messerschmitt 108 "Taifuns," painted to look like Me-109 fighters.
