SPITFIRE is an epic, sweeping tale of determination, vision and courage. It is the story of an aircraft that was forged in competition, shaped as the war clouds gathered, and refined in the white heat of combat – going on to become the most famous fighter plane ever made.

Her beginnings were as a race-winning seaplane in the 1920’s. In an era of wood and canvas biplanes, designer RJ Mitchell created a 400mph metal monoplane. Now racing against time, he created the new fighter as the Nazis rose to power in Germany.

Delivered to the Royal Air Force a year before war broke out, its moment of glory came in the summer of 1940 during the Battle of Britain. The young fighter pilots of the RAF fought a deadly aerial war with Hitler’s Luftwaffe in the skies over Southern England. If they failed, Britain would fall.

But against all the odds, they won and paved the way for the eventual victory over the Nazis. As the war continued, the Spitfire would change and adapt, always remaining at the forefront of the fight. And even today, the legend lives on.

Credited with changing the course of world history, this is the story of the Spitfire – told in the words of the last-surviving combat veterans. With stunning aerial footage from the world’s top aviation photographer, the film also contains rare, digitally re-mastered, archive footage from the tumultuous days of the 1940's when her power in the skies was unrivalled.

Her place in history assured - Spitfire also explores how this extraordinary plane thrives today and how it has become an international icon.

SPITFIRE features interviews from veterans Allan Scott, Geoffrey Welham, Joan Fanshawe, Joy Lofthouse, Ken Wilkinson, Mary Ellis, Nigel Rose, Paul Farnes, Tom ‘Ginger’ Neil and Tony Pickering.
