This is the first Christopher Nolan film to be based on actual events. Effectively, even though the screenplay is original, Dunkirk is Nolan's first film inspired by a true story.

"When the two pilots discuss whether flying from 1000' to 2000' is worth the extra fuel consumption, there is no difference in fuel flow rate in a piston engine airplane between the 2 altitudes." While there would be no great difference in fuel consumption cruising at 1000' or 2000', changing altitude while maintaining velocity would require an increase in fuel consumption, although not to a great extent. What can perhaps be said that a tactical error, weather intended "in character" or an unintentional scripting error, may have been made in that even 2000' seems frightfully low to be entering into an areal engagement. But that can also be attributed to a lack of experience on the pilot's part, which would have been consistent with the experience level of the average RAF pilot of the time.
"The producers would like to thank all the veterans of Operation Dynamo who contributed to the making of this film by sharing their memories and insights from the events of 26th May - 4th June 1940."
