Spitfire (DVD)

David Fairhead, Ant Palmer

Spitfire is a cinematic, 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 craft ever made.

Credited with changing the course of world history, this is the story of the Spitfire - told personally in the words of the last-surviving combat veterans including Allan Scott, Geoffrey Wellum, Joan Fanshawe, Joy Lofthouse, Ken Wilkinson, Mary Ellis, Nigel Rose, Paul Farnes, Tom ‘Ginger' Neil and Tony Pickering.

Breath-taking aerial footage from the world’s top aviation photographer John Dibbs is combined with rare digitally re-mastered archive film from the tumultuous days of the 1940s, when the Spitfire’s power in the skies was unrivalled. 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.

Spitfire also explores how this extraordinary aircraft thrives today and how it has become an international icon.

Directed by David Fairhead and Ant Palmer, Spitfire is an Elliptical Wing Production presented by British Film Company, with Haviland Digital and Mark Stewart Productions. It is produced by Gareth Dodds, Christian Eisenbeiss, Mark Stewart and Pat Mills.
