Imperial War Museums
An anthology of personal stories from those who designed, built, maintained and flew the iconic Spitfire. Tales of courage, humour, wartime drama and peacetime triumph; from the 1930s to the present day. Includes the extraordinary tale of the fighter pilot who only discovered the tragic truth of his last Spitfire flight fifty years on; how a businessman’s blank cheque changed the course of the war; and the determination of a ninety-five-year-old former Royal Air Force engineer to be reunited with his beloved ‘Spit’ aircraft. Drawn from documents, letters and photographs in the collection of the Imperial War Museums, plus exclusive first-hand interviews: a revelatory collection of small but significant histories of the Spitfire, all to be treasured.
