This DVD is a collection of very RARE films on the Famous RAF Supermarine Spitfire. The Spitfire arrived in history just in the nick of time. Hitler was on a terror and he was convinced that England would fall through Airpower. Ironically the little Spitfire went toe to toe along with the famous Hurricane airplane and beat off the powerful German Luftwaffe at the time. Without German Air supremacy, "Operation Sea lion" was cancelled. I'm absolutely amazed at this aircraft and there is truly amazing footage of the different Supermarine spitfire's in almost in all of there versions. We hope you'll enjoy.
1st Film; "Spitfire Versions". This is a RAF film that shows all of the different versions. From the Mark I to the Mark 21. Plus the Sea Marine Spitfire Mark 15. If you ever wanted to know the reason for the "Clipped Wing Mark VI" or the amazing "Mark XVI" and more, then you'll enjoy this film. Runtime 15:04 Min's
2nd Film; "RAF Fighter Pilots". This an RAF film on the planes and pilots that fought in the Battle of Britain. Short but important film footage. I'm grateful to have acquired these films. Runtime 8:50 Min's
3rd Film; "Battle of Britain". What a Story!!! Winston Churchill once said, "Never has so many owed so much to so few". The Battle of Britain was the first major campaign to be fought entirely by air forces and the outcome would determine whether there would be a German invasion called, "Operation Sea Lion". Runtime 52.45 Min's

5th Film; "A Message from Malta". This is a story most folks don't know about. The battle for Malta. The British held out for over a year with the folks of Malta in great defiance to German Luftwaffe and Hitler. With only a few RAF planes to fight back and very limited supplies, the Island held. Hitler was furious and bombed the island almost daily, but the Brits and the islanders held on. Amazing story. Runtime 11:02 Min's
