The aerial shots of the airplane Major Strasser arrives in Casablanca are model shots of a single-engined Fokker F.VII. Only when the sequences of the airplane is on the ground taxiing to the airport terminal does it switch to a real Fokker Superuniversal. The Fokker F.VII was available in Europe as a single engined high wing monoplane beginning in 1924. Fokker later had his chief designer Reinhold Platz modify the plane in 1925 to a trimotor design. Some variants had the windscreen 'flush'(not integrated) with the leading edge of the wing. Later specimens had 'extended' windscreens bringing the cockpit forward of the leading edge. The Fokker Universal and it's successor Superuniversal had a squat profile with a somewhat rounded belly distinguishing them from their earlier cousin the F.VII. All in all while it's not impossible that the Germans would be flying a high official on an outdated Dutch airliner, it is HIGHLY IMPROBABLE that Strasser would be on a non-German non-metal aircraft.
