Condor’s Nest (2023)


A decade after the fall of Nazi Germany, an American aviator travels across South America in search of war criminals and encounters more than he bargained for.


American war veteran Will Spalding uncovers a secret Nazi headquarters in remote South America. He is in for more than he bargained for as he seeks revenge against the sadistic Nazi colonel who executed his bomber crew.

  • The interior B17 scenes in the film’s opening scene were shot in “Texas Raiders,” a B17G bomber which the production team flew for several hours as they needed in-flight footage to match the continuity of the scene.
    • Texas Raiders crashed in Houston a year later, making Condor’s Nest the final film in which airplane appears.
  • The production’s art department spent over a year building the crashed B17 bomber featured in the opening scene of the film.
    • The plane was engineered in conjunction with historians, aviation enthusiasts, and the producers themselves, and carefully constructed in a field in eastern North Carolina with over 30,000 rivets.
    • The fuselage and wings are made of plywood, framing lumber, and low-grade industrial aluminium, but the cockpit housing, engine cowls, nose canopy, and bent propellers are original parts salvaged from wrecked B17s.
    • The airplane’s top turret and fiberglass propellers were originally built for and featured in war movie Memphis Belle (1990).
  • The Buenos Aires bar in which Jorge Garcia performs as its proprietor is the same bar that features in Sony Pictures title Point Man(2019) where it was a GI bar in 1960s Saigon.
    • The crimson bull from the original set is visible in the background, but with the words changed from Vietnamese to Spanish.
  • The shot of the Nazi flag unfurling over the Pacific coast of South America was a last-second decision after director Blattenberger grabbed the flag out of the prop box on a whim as the crew left for the airport.
    • The crew spent two days location scouting and drove hours into the sand dunes of Paracas, Peru, to achieve that shot.
  • Arnold Vosloo, James Urbaniak, and Bruce Davison, who did not speak a word of German prior to accepting their roles as Germans, learned the entire farcical archaeological discussion in German.
  • The opening shot of the film was the last shot filmed during principal photography.
    • The original opening scene began inside the bomber, but the producers made a last-minute decision to open the movie in an extending sequence on the ground.
  • The scenes in the HQ tent in the Bolivia desert were filmed thousands of miles apart: the interiors with Michael Ironside in North Carolina, and the exteriors in a remote canyon in central Utah.
    • The art department broke down the tent, drove it cross country, and reassembled it in the canyon to produce an exact match.
