Trivia / The Blue Max

  • Backed by the Pentagon: Sort of. The film was mainly made in Ireland, and the Irish Air Force provided pilots for the planes as well as logistic support, access to air bases, and necessary logistic back-up.
  • Ace Pilot: The aerial stunts were all done by the legendary stunt pilot Frank Tallman.
    • Although George Peppard did do some of his own flying and eventually after this film, he became an avid flyer.
