Spitfire Women

During WWII, a remarkable band of female pilots fought against all odds for the right to aid the war effort. Without them the war may never have been won: they were the Spitfire Women. Using interviews with the last few surviving veterans, archive footage and dramatic reconstruction, this documentary brings to life the forgotten story of the Air Transport Auxillary – a 1,000-strong crew that delivered aircraft to the frontline RAF during Britain’s darkest hours.
