Inspiration of a Nation
NZ Herald 3.5/ 5 Stars "Worthy of note is its examination into the role that women played; whose skills were not only employed in the manufacture and design of the aircraft, but also their piloting prowess in delivering the 22,000 Spitfires to the airfields."
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 aeroplane that was forged in competition, shaped as the war clouds gathered, and refined in the white heat of combat â€“ 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 â€“ told in the words of the last-surviving combat veterans. With stunning aerial footage from the worldâ€™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.
Narrated by Charles Dance (Game of Thrones).
Directed by David Fairhead, Ant Palmer
