Modern military aircraft in "brother joining squadron" scene?

Please help. I am watching The Red Baron for the first time - it was on BBC2 in the UK on Boxing Day and I recorded it.

I have just got to the part where General von Hoeppner brings Manfred's brother Lothar to join the squadron.

Manfred is walking the general across to look at his kite and they pass behind a motor car and in front of some photographers.

Is it my imagination or is there a fin, tail fairing and part of the fuselage of a modern military aircraft, painted in grey/green camouflage, in the background?

It's only a fleeting glimpse but, with it being recorded, I am able to pause and play it in slow motion.

Thanks to anyone out there who reads this and responds.

Interesting observation and would not be surprised if a moddern palne snuck into view. However, I'm not going to spend time searching thru RB just to find out.

cheers, Boom

I saw it yesterday . Thought it was absolute rubbish . It was the sort of thing I would have enjoyed when I was 10 or 11 after reading a Biggles book.


Cheers

Morning All.

I started watching this on BBC iPlayer last night but fell asleep after an hour. Can anyone tell me if he lives or dies in the end? I never knew that Great war fighters could climb at close to Mach 1 either. My education will not be complete until I watch the end of the film.

Yours in sarcasm

John.

An antenna?? And its not a quick 1 second, they almost zoom in on it, and its pretty clear.

No reference to MVR's time in the trenches- no reference to his time in 2 seaters, oh, but this is a fictional love story, based on 1 photograph, and no information on Kate Otersdorf.

I love the HUGE Modern hanger, with a shiny cement floor, for 1 Albatross, and MVR SCREAMING at his mechanic to paint it red.

"The Blue Max" has its share of goofs, but its fiction and has Ursula Andress. "They play Var games together"

Thank you Beto

Glory be - I can't stand films where the hero dies in the end. For putting me out of my misery thanks.

Seriously, I have now seen the last reel and it didn't really improve on what had gone before. As for a nurse wandering around the base in a dressing gown, had she been reported to matron dismissal would follow in an instant. Trained professional nurses recuited in the early years of the Great War were almost exclusively from moneyed homes and as such were decently (though not extravagantly) educated and generally 'well brought up'. As such, they were expected to behave most properly in public. It was only when recruitment widened that some of the volunteer nurses might have been rather freer with their favours. My grandmother, Harley Street trained pre-war, served on the Western Front, Gallipoli, survived the sinking of HMHS Britannic (I have seen a photograph of her and her colleagues outside the hotel where the Queen Alexandra's Imperial Nursing Service sisters were put up pending retrieval) and ended up in Italy. She remained 'proper' up to her death in 1977. The German pattern of nursing services was very similar.

I am also uncomfortable at the number of motorized ambulances available in the film, so available as to be comandeered by a party of nurses for a night out. The British and French relied heavily on horse drawn ambulances throughout the war. I feel a project coming on.

Regards
John
