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.
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.
Thanks for listening and we do hope you have found this episode of interest. Stay-tuned as coming up next on the WWII Nation podcast, we speak with battlefield guide Mike Peters about the campaign in Sicily during the Second World War.
