A Kette of Heinkel He-111s strafing American soldiers and vehicles during the Tunisian campaign. Although there are severel inconsistencies in this clip, namely:

  • The Heinkels are carrying out a daylight strafing run instead of dropping bombs
  • The Swastikas on the tail are too big
  • It is unlikely that POWs were held next to a Luftwaffe airfiels, separated only by a fence
It is still a nice clip which give us the chance to see He-111 in flight. Curiously, the Spanish-built Heinkels are one of the most filmed aicraft, since they were also extensively used for the 1969 film Battle of Britain.
