“Spitfire” is a cinematic, epic, sweeping tale of determination, vision and courage. It is the story of an airplane 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 Spitfire’s 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 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. An original score from composer Chris Roe, and the roar of the famous Merlin engine, creates an incredible soundscape.

Combining film screenings with dynamic speakers, veterans and film makers, the film series brings aviation history alive on stage and on the theatre’s six-story screen. Tickets are available at the theatre’s ticket counter, can be ordered online at afmuseum.com/livinghistory or by calling 937-253-4629.
