This happens in the original "Midway" movie wherein Charlton Heston climbs into a SBD, rolls off the deck in a TBF, flies in a F4U (no mistaking that one!) and crashing onto the deck in a Jet!  In 1942!

Much of the Japanese attack footage in "Midway" (1976) was from "Tora, Tora, Tora!" (1970). One glaring mistake is a shot of Japanese planes, supposedly making an attack on a U.S. ship at sea with a number of cranes in the background. I own both movies and the cranes were from the original Pearl Harbor attack shots from "Tora, Tora, Tora!"  One of my favorite goofs was from either "Dillinger" or "Melvin Purvis, G-Man" where the camera shot switches from tight to wide on a supposed "Chicago Street" only  to show the San Gabriel Mountains looming in the background. All that's missing is the Hollywood sign.
