"Fascinating interviews, well worth a watch"
5 stars"

The interviews with all the last surviving pilots that fought and served in WW2 are really interesting, and great footage of the planes.

"Looking back at the aircraft that changed history."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

World war two is now lost from memory of most, yet there are some who were part of what the Spitfire did for the world. This is their final word.

"Excellent service"

Purchased on Mighty Ape

DVD very informative but the background music overwhelmed the speakers. Disappointing

Description

Spitfire is a cinematic, 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 going on to become the most famous fighter aircraft ever made.Credited with changing the course of world history, this is the Spitfires story told personally in the words of the last-surviving combat veterans.

Through their recollections, we experience the terror and exhilaration of combat five miles up, the sudden loss of friends and the grim determination to see the job through.Breath-taking aerial footage from the worlds top aviation photographer John Dibbs is combined with rare digitally re-mastered archive film from the tumultuous days of the 1940s, when the Spitfires power in the skies was unrivaled.

A beautiful original score from composer Chris Roe, and the roar of the famous Merlin engine, creates an incredible soundscape to make this a striking and poignant film.

Critics Reviews of Spitfire

  • “It's the kind of documentary that doesn't require an interest in the subject to make it worth your while. Certainly, the intoxicating imagery is both sad and thrilling, but it's the fascinating personal accounts that resonate most.” – Toby Woollaston, New Zealand Herald
  • “It's quite a sedate film, rarely bringing the terrors of aerial combat to life and never tiring of present-day shots of Spitfires above green fields, but it's full of interviews worth hearing.” – Edward Porter, Sunday Times (UK)
  • Spitfire is an excellent documentary telling the story of the iconic fighter…with the help of a splendid selection of pilots, plotters and female delivery pilots.” – Matthew Bond, The Mail on Sunday (UK)
