We investigate multiphoton single ionization with intense femtosecond laser fields in aligned nitrogen molecules. We find that the temporal structure of the electron wave packet released into the continuum by tunnelling ionization is independent of alignment and thus independent of the spatial structure of the orbital it originated from.
