From the YouTube page for this movie (part 1).....

 

" Principal frontline aircraft used by the Chinese Air Force at the beginning of war: Curtiss Hawk II/Hawk III, Boeing B-10 bomber and P-26/281 fighter; replaced by Russian made Polikarpov I-15's and I-16's when American made aircraft were depleted, and the USA largely ignoring the events transpiring between China and Imperial Japan.

 

Principal frontline aircraft employed by the Imperial Japanese as seen in this film: Mitsubishi A5M fighters and G3M bombers."

I always knew that the Hawk III was the best of them all! After watching all that "Buck Rogers" special effects, it makes me want to go out and smoke (blow up) some bombers! Where do I buy me some of them flying goggles?

I just love the older movies. Thanks for sharing.
