Torrent description

Discovery Channel - Spitfire Ace - part 2 of 4 - Dogfight (2004)


The Battle of Britain in 1940 is one of the most famous air battles in the history of warfare, But at its heart is one particular figure, the RAF fighter pilot. Famous for their dazzling technical skill and tremendous bravery, they are also part of a romantic mythology, with a combination of valour and glamour that has endured through to our modern age. But equally as legendary are the planes the men flew, and one in particular ? the Supermarine Spitfire.

"All our hearts go out to the fighter pilots, whose brilliant actions we see with our own eyes day after day. Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few." Winston Churchill, 20th August 1940

In part two of this thrilling four-part series about the most iconic symbol of the Battle of Britain, the number of modern-day pilots vying for a chance to have nine hours combat training in a vintage Spitfire has been halved. Just two of the modern-day pilots will go through to learn the dos and don'ts of learning to fly a Spitfire in combat. They will also find out more about the challenge that faced the RAF in the summer of 1940.

Veterans discuss the fighter pilot's life - on duty from three in the morning 'til ten at night; facing the enemy having never before fired their guns; how silk scarves saved lives; what it was like to be fighting one minute and chasing girls the next; and the crushing pain of watching best friends dying day after day.

As the two remaining young pilots undergo three hours training in basic Spitfire operation they face the rigours of g-force and blacking out, before one pilot is finally chosen to complete the full nine hours of advanced operational training.

The successful pilot will get the chance to fulfil every young boy's dream - to fly a Spitfire for themselves and master some of the aerobatic manoeuvers that made the Spitfire such a legend.
