SPITFIRE

THE PLANE'S STORY AS TOLD BY THE LAST-SURVIVING COMBAT VETERANS

IN-CINEMA GIVEAWAY
LATEST REVIEWS
By Charlie David Page
4th November 2018

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 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.

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.
