This is why I'm really excited to see the upcoming movie "Midway". I know a guy who was an extra, and he says they really went out of their way to get the planes, ships, uniforms etc. correct. Now if they can just get the script right...
Hope they did a better job than the producers of "Pearl Harbor" (2001).
They used CGI to recreate the U.S. battleships and the Japanese attack force, but mixed in footage of modern guided missile cruisers and destroyers. Lame.
Tora! Tora! Tora! was a much better film about Pearl Harbor.
