With 2018 marking RAF100, we turn our attention to looking at one of Britain’s most iconic wartime aircraft – the Supermarine Spitfire.
And in this episode of the WWII Nation Podcast we speak with Co-Director David Fairhead about his new film documentary ‘Spitfire’ out in cinemas next week.
Listen To Talking Spitfire Here:
We will be discussing all things Spitfire related and finding out a lot about this remarkable aircraft from David. As well as talking about what it symbolised to the British people, why it had such a longevity of service and how it still manages to capture the imaganiation of generations to this day, we also hear the thoughts of those veterans who flew her – such as ATA pilots Joy Lofthouse and Mary Ellis, RAF Fighter pilots Paul Farnes, Tom Neil and Geoffrey Wellum.
