    Interesting but also completely misleading. The vast majority of the combat footage, especially the train and airfield strafing was done by P-51's and P-47's of the USAF. There is also footage of a four engined bomber being attacked (it's a B-17) and most ironic of all at around the 7.20-7.30 point in the video, a Spitfire is shot down. This G/C footage came from German ace Gerhard Schopfel flying a Bf 109F in 1944.

    Still, it makes a nice story, even though factually it's b*****ks.
