Product description

The Supermarine Spitfire remains one of the all time classic fighters and certainly one of the most recognised.

In Britain it has become part of folklore: the aeroplane that helped save the country during the Battle of Britain. Aviation fans the world over often wonder what it would be like to fly this famous plane.

Alex Henshaw, Chief Test Pilot for Vickers-Supermarine at their Castle Bromwich "shadow factory" from 1940 to 1945 introduces the programme and explains about the development of the legendary aircraft - including a hair-raising crash in testing.

Other wartime pilots who contribute are Flight Lieutenant Donald K. Healey (17 Squadron) and Air Commodore Peter M. Brothers CBE DSO DFC (257 Squadron).

The centrepiece of the film is a take-off to landing sequence with aerobatic ace Tony Bianchi in Spitfire Mk. Ia AR213 (marked as PR-D).

In addition there is air-to-air footage of Battle of Britain Memorial Flight PR Mk.XIX PM631.

This stunning video offers you the chance to experience the pilot's perspective, with in-cockpit cameras.

Also features walk-arounds of the Mark Ia, Mark V, Mark XIV, Mark XVI and Mark XIX aircraft.
