    The first rule of making an airplane movie is to ignore physics. I choked a few times, chortled a few times, jawdropped a few times.

    That part wherein the officers at the Japanese anti-aircraft batteries were directing the guns with their swords. I liked that.

    Actually, in reality, not swords, but pointers. They had no radar and only localized, that is per mount/battery control. They shot at what the battery officer pointed.
