It's from the new Indiana Jones trailer. Another looks-sort-of-but-not-quite-familiar Evil Nazi a/c from (I'm presuming) the wizards at ILM. Geeked

I had heard that the HE-111 started out as a airliner but ended up as a bomber.  Maybe that is supposed to be one of those but it seems to have a nose gun position.

Just a speculation.

I do know this, it doesn't look a thing like a B-52D.  Seen enough of them to know that much.

Gregg nailed it!
 
 I've seen all the earlier movies in this series and like any warm blooded model builder I'm looking forward to seeing this (last one?) on June 29th.
 Just wanted to add a good pic of that Nazi imposter for anyone interested. I kinda like it maybe better than the original. Things have come a long way from the aircraft and tank props from earlier episodes.
 

 

Hmm.. haven't been in a theatre in a few years...... popcorn emoticonI guess they stil have popcorn.

I've been a local movie theater regular since they reopened...that's where I saw the trailer! Big Smile

Popcorn's still as greasy and slightly stale as ever...but I love the theater big-screen (and live audience) experience. Even with the best of TV's, it's just not the same.

Down here in Orlando they have the tank from the third Indy movie on display at Epcot.  At least they did the last time I was there.

I haven't been to an actual movie theater since one of the Harry Potter movies.

Been years since I've been to the movie theater but the last few times we were going to those high-end, recliner, food & drink service places.  Really fun.

Thanks,

John

Didn't an HE111 have a single vertical stab?

Everything else cries out 111.  I suppose one could be modified easily enough.

The last movie I saw in the theater was Star Wars at it's inital release. Metal folding seats with almost no padding, had to smuggle in beer and food but at least there were ashtrays in the seat arms.

I wonder why a regular He-111 wasn't used.  The twin fins and second dorsal gun position are puzzling to me.  If they wanted a scarier looking real airplane with twin fins and two dorsal gun stations, there's the Ju-290.  Artistic license at the behest of the director?  Copyright?  Board of directors meddling?

In the original film, the flying wing had what looked like a Boulton Paul tail turret when a Ikaria cone turret would have been more appropriate.  Sorry, I'm just a Luftwaffe modeler thinking out loud.

'Cuz Hollywood. 

They are not going for historical accuracy in these movies so they build for effect and as you said somebody somewhere figured that looked cooler than the boring old real thing.

It was presented as an airliner during development and its initial roll-out.  But that was a cover to get around Versailles restrictions on German air forces.  It was intended from the beginning to be used as a bomber.

Is the airplane in the OP's image even real, that is, a physical aircraft? Or is it a CGI image?  I haven't seen any previews of the movie, so I don't know.  In the movie, does it appear on a ramp somewhere, and people have interaction with it?  And even in the case of people interacting with the airplane, it could still be computer-generated.

That is, I'm not sure anyone modified an existing He-111/CASA 2.111.

The OP's image appears to have Jumo engines, although ground shots with a real airplane would probably be Spanish CASAs with the Hispano engines.  The "tell" is the larger chin radiators of the CASAs.

It is a CGI image.

Just like the Panzer 1 was developed and built as a "large tractor"

Most of the Luftwaffe multi-engine types in service at the start of the war had ostensibly been developed -- as Herr Baron pointed out, due to Versailles restrictions -- either as passenger planes or...my favorite...'fast mail planes' with 'special cargo capacity.' (That would be bombs.)

It is indeed a CG image. I thought I spotted the CASA type nacelles the first time I saw the trailer, and wondered if they'd used airshow or other modern footage as the template for the image programming. The twin fins were never a projected He111 design feature, as far as I know...just added to look 'cool,' I guess, unless it somehow works into a bit of necessary 'business' on-screen..

All of the flying images are undoubtedly CGI, but it is shown pulling out of a hangar and taxiing on the ground, with actors in the same shot.  My gut feeling while watching that was it was real with that heavily modified tail section.

I thought the movie was a lot of fun.

Like the plane in the first edition, they probably have a "prop" to taxi around in .... but not for flying.

A lot of German equipment was designed as a civilian vehicle but was really intended to be a weapon of war. This was due to restrictions placed on them after WW1.

Most of their tanks were called "special purpose vehicles" or just tractors to hide their true purpose. Much like the British did with the original armored fighting vehicles; the Brits decided to call it a "tank" so folks would think it was a vehicle designed to transport liquids.

I went to see it but was mildly disappointed. It was OK but it was just one CGI stunt after another.

Since this was the final chapter of the series, the ending scene (although a bit sad) was done very well.

 My all time favorite scene was from the very first feature where he (and with that look on his face) just took out his pistol and simply shot that flashy swordsman..... easily believeable.

The theatre ticked me off by showing 25 minutes of movie previews (beginning at the advertised 2:30 feature) instead of it being when the movie finally started.......3 P.M.

An assigned seat?..... bull.

Haven't been to a theatre in about 10-12 years so I guess I've aged out.

That was the last one for me.
