I happen to come across this on youtube this afternoon.

An interesting tidbit of a little known fact of WW2. My question is this: How can a Bf 109 make it that far into Ireland? Thoughts or insights?

It's fiction, not fact; anything is possible to film producers (especially the Hollywood variety,) as that nonsense about Enigma being captured by American forces amply illustrates.

After doing a bit of research on this, I came across a couple links that makes more sense with a little more insight.

I now realize the video comes off as fiction, not fact. Thank you, Mr. Brooks.
