Michael and crew should be heading to England towards the end of August. The UK scenes of Pearl Harbor, are to be filmed at an airfield outside the city of Bath, in the south west of England, possible at the RAF airbase in Colerne, which is the nearest airfield according to sources.

You can catch a glimpse of Michael Bay in the movie “Coyote Ugly.” He’s the photographer in the bar.
