Re: Dunkirk

Spitfire 1a G-CGUK and G-AIST, and Hispano HA1112-M1L Buchon G-AWHK were used for the air actions.
Also Spitfire Vb G-CISV.

Haven't seen the movie (yet), so more a/c may have participated.

They were based at Lelystad and sometimes Hoogeveen airfields, the Netherlands, during the filming of "Dunkirk", around July 2016.

The fishing port of Urk in the IJsselmeer (the former Zuiderzee, or Zuyder Zee for our English speaking friends) was the place for the ship actions.

And if Belgium was forgotten in the movie: the seaside town of De Panne (La Panne) played a quite important role in Operation Dynamo as well.
But then of course the film is called "Dunkirk" and not "La Panne".

Regards,

Leendert
