Cessna T-50/AT-8/AT-17/UC-78 as a Japanese bomber in PT-109
The burning Spitfire replica at the end of Dunkirk with a broomstick attached to the prop. Come on guys, you could have put a scrap Jag V-12 in it.
On the Key Forum they often mention a European film that I've never seen with Buchons in RAF colors and (IIRC) Hurricanes as German fighters.
Pet film peaves: Round tail PT-13/17/N2S Stearmans as 20s-30s mail planes. At least get a square tail Stearman...or even a Travel Air or WACO would be more period correct.
However, I'd prefer to see a Bf-108 in a film than a Buchon. It looks better in profile than the Spanish Messerschmitts.
As a kid in the 60s-70s on countless TV series when they wanted to show an airliner, they'd use a cut away shot of landing gear being raised...usually it was B-52 gear.
Also on TV series they show a Lear or some other small bizjet, yet they'd have an interior mockup the size of a 707...or at least a JetStar.
Overall, I'm pretty tolerant of the usual stuff T-6/Zeros or the HU-16 subbing for a PBY in In Harm's Way
, F-84Fs subbing for MiG-15s in The Hunters
(that film has been used in many other films like Airwolf
)...and similar instances where close was really good enough.
