Just need a little help here folks.

I was recently rewatching DAS BOOT and I was unsure what type of aircraft it is that straffe's the Uboat as they are setting out to sea?

I am aware that it may be a mock up and not an actual warbird but if you can shed a little light I would be grateful.

Stuck here at work so I cant replay the video right now to find out.

Regards Balrog

P.S Top film btw if you havent seen it and well worth watching IMO

Great movie... In 1981 Wolfgang Petersen calls upon Jean Salis to regulate the sequences of attack of the base of submarine of the La Rochelle. T-6 of Ferté-Alais will be transformed into frightening bombers thanks to the camouflage, the cameras and the talent of Wolfgang. Pilot Jean Dirtied, Krine Jack and some friends as well as the Production will carry out this magic epopee for the cinema.

Excellent Woofie I should have know you would come up with the goods mate http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif Pint on me coming your way http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Should have guessed it was a harvard but I havent seen that many with the single seat configurtion. Was used by the Raf to train fighter pilots in the early days. Had a viscous stall characteristic too . Good bit about that bird in G.Wellums book First light.

an excellent read if your looking for material to get you in the mood for BoB.
