Note: This film utilises a significant quantity of Computer Generated Images (CGI). Aircraft portrayed in this film may not be entirely accurate and have been identified as closely as possible to real aircraft.

Season One

Fictional Supersonic Airliner

Close to Concorde but designed by Germany, we could talk for hours about the source of inspiration, the similarities and differences between this nice Made for Movie Rocket as written on the engine nacelle (£) and Concorde ... starting with the cockpit windows which are unrealistic, to say the least, on a supersonic plane!
(£) Lufthansa ME9-E Rocket Ship (according the book). On the TV screen, the nose is wearing Reich Air. Greater Nazi Reich.

Season ?

Alternate Kamov Ka-27

Seen at the beginning of the 4th season during the summary of the previous seasons.
In dystopian alternate inuverse, a helicopter of the Navy of Empire of Japan.
Basic shape is the Kamov Ka-27 mixed with some Ka-25 and/or Ka-32 features. Of the usual two large boxes on the starboard side of the cabin, the lower one is missing as like the twin gyromagnetic compass unit under the boom. The rear split cabin door is here a sliding one (as there was on the Ka-25). It's not the civil Ka-32 not only by its Hinomaru (Japanese roundel) but too by the radar's active phased array antenna under the fuselage and the front undernose radar.

Season Four

Alternate Mil Mi-24 Hind

Episode 01 Hexagram 64
Or should we consider this attack helicopter as a Made for Movie ? What seems to be a Mil Mi-8 modified with two "stove pipe" and small wings for weapons.

Dornier Do 31

Episode 01 Hexagram 64
Reg. D-9129. (*)
Vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) jet-propelled transport reaching operational status in this uchronic world.
In our real one, this design was made by Dornier Flugzeugwerke and three aircrafts, two flight-capable and one static airframe, were constructed and used for testing. The maiden flight occured on February 1967 and the Do 31 performed its final public flight on 4 May 1970. The two flyable airframes are now on static display (at Friedrichshafen, Germany near Lake Constance and at the Deutsches Museum Flugwerft Schleissheim (near Munich, Germany).

(*) We are in the alternate universe ... In our world (the real REAL one, not the P. K. Dick's one!), D-9129 is for a Schleicher ASG 29 sailplane c/n 29061 which crashed on short landing (without injuring its pilot) on Wednesday 21 August 2013 in Italia.

Saturn I

Back in the 'real' world but still with some small historical error (§) : the fourth test flight was launch on 28 March 1963 not in September 1964 (newspaper dated by 18 September).
This uchronic Washington Post issue used the right picture of one of the first three launches.

(§) this is a common pratice in this series : for example, Staline is still alive in 1954 (dead on 5 March 1953).
