They say she was beautiful. A dream. But for all her good looks, she was also a killer. Spitfire is an epic, sweeping tale of determination, vision and courage. It is the story of an aeroplane that was forged in competition, shaped as the war clouds gathered, and refined in the white heat of combat. Credited with changing the course of world history, this story is told in the words of the last-surviving combat veterans. This film contains stunning aerial footage from the world’s top aviation photographer which is combined with rare digitally re-mastered, archive footage from the tumultuous days of the 1940’s when her power in the skies was unrivalled. This film is a worthy reminder in this RAF centenary year of the bravery displayed in Britain’s darkest hour and contains some truly wonderful stories that are both poignant, honest and deeply felt.
