They got them from Spain:

From Wiki:

"Thirty-two flyable Heinkel He 111 bombers and 27 Merlin-engined Me 109s (of which 17 were made flyable) were also found in Tablada military airbase, Seville (Spain). The Heinkels were Spanish-built He-111H-16 models (CASA 2.111s) and were also powered by Merlin-engines. The single-seat "Messerschmitt" fighters were Spanish-assembled versions called the Hispano Aviación HA-1112 M1L Buchon. After the making of the film, one of the HA-1112 was donated to the Luftwaffenmuseum der Bundeswehr and converted to a Messerschmitt Bf-109 G-2 variant, now depicting the insignias of Gustav Rödel. In addition, two Spanish-built Junkers Ju 52s were used. Two of the "Heinkels" and the 17 flyable "Messerschmitts" (including one dual-controlled HA-1112-M4L two-seater used for conversion training and as a camera-ship) were later flown to England to complete the shoot [1]. In the scene where the Polish training squadron breaks off to attack, ("repeat, please"), the most distant "Hurricane"s from the camera were actually Buchons marked as Hurricanes as there were not enough flyable Hawkers to make up the formation.

In order to recreate Junkers Ju 87 "Stuka" divebombers, the film company acquired four Percival Proctor training aircraft and converted two of them into 1/2 scale Stuka replicas, complete with a cranked wing as "Proctukas" [1]. In order to duplicate the steep diving angle of the original Ju 87 attacks, large scale models flown by radio control were used in one scene for sequences of the Luftwaffe attacks against the British radar sites[1]. Radio controlled Heinkel He 111 models were also built and flown to depict bombers being destroyed over the North Sea."

No Proctors were used. They did not in any way resemble a Stuka.

The Stukas in the film were radio controlled models.

Some people seem to think they used them. Maybe converted and then not used as initially desired?
