    I only saw it in regular 70mm, so I suppose I don’t know what I was missing.

    Cillian Murphy’s character isn’t a pilot and wasn’t rescued from a plane. He’s rescued from a ship, and before then he was on a rowboat instead of a plane.

    There are some German fighter pilots, but their purpose is to protect the bombers, who in turn posed the large threat to forces below. It’s bombers who tend to have a tail-gunner (because they are frequent targets for attack). The most notorious German bomber was the Stuka dive-bomber.

    Another movie about an allied defeat at the hands of the Germans is “A Bridge Too Far”, about Operation Market Garden. It’s much less inspiring than this one, as befits the actual events.
