In 90 degree heat and Michigan weather,  director Michael Chait, cast and crew wrapped the last day of the pick-up shots for “Wolf Hound,” the telling of the historic real-life account of KG 200, the German Luftwaffe special operations unit that captured Allied aircraft as Trojan horses to wreak havoc on Allied bomber squadrons.

As Michael B. Chait tells it, “Here are some behind the scenes pictures from our pick-up shoot for “WOLF HOUND” I directed last week.  It was a whirlwind of filming and I’m truly in awe of the performances, action and visuals we were able to get on the screen.

He continues, “Aside from a very small special effects shoot this month (small compared to the two larger pick-up shoots) we are now fully in post-production with all shooting done, and are expecting to have the final movie ready by later this year.

“We’re going to be posting one more round of behind the scenes pictures from last week sometime within the next few days, as soon as the photographer sends me the final stills.

“Thank you sincerely so, so much to our awesome cast and crew for making it happen, especially in 90+ degree heat. Now back to editing and post-production. ”

The Yankee Air Museum in Michigan allowed Chait to utilize the original “Rosie the Riveter” bomber plant hanger as a major filming location. The museum also offered their North American B-25 Mitchell Bomber and Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress Bomber, of which there are only 10 still flying in the world.

Filmmakers also shot footage with P-51 Mustangs, a Supermarine Spitfire, Hawker Hurricane, and either a German Messerschmitt Bf 109 or Focke-Wulf Fw 190.
