Based on the continuity this car is in the same spot as the convertible with the CC 9205 plate, but the more I look at it, the less like it it looks.

^ I'm referring to the truck and the two cars, not the planes. :D

imdb only lists US film locations, but this looks northern UK, maybe Scotland for stone architecture, so maybe some generic Brit footage inserted.

Quote With complete cooperation from the RAF, including extensive use of RAF stock footage, the studio was allowed to film actual aerial battles shot by a camera-equipped aircraft.

@dsl: Very likely. There are notes on both IMDb and AFI (the latter citing 'many contemporary sources') that Britain's Air Ministry sent the studio oodles of stock footage of British planes. There's no reason to suppose all of it was footage of aerial fighting. As the camera follows the running airmen we see an airfield, which is then shown as apparent background projection as Tyrone Power gets into his plane, and I would agree that's stock footage (also because of the number of planes shown).
