The full-size OS2U Kingfisher replica on catapult of the USS Arizona set was built to perfect scale
using a Wright R-975 engine, complete interior fixtures and even a rear mounted Browning machine
gun.    (courtesy of Air Classics magazine)

Another view of the fiberglass Kingfisher replica. Interestingly, the aircraft lacks the red circle within
the national insignia; one of the few mistakes in authenticity made by the production crew.

B-25J Mitchell bomber that was used in the scene where a Zero crashes into a hangar (seen from within).
The question is: why was this B-25 given a single vertical tail, instead of the twin tail that all Mitchells had?
