I wasn't sure where to post it, but it might be a good place for it here. Probably a lot of people here have seen it already, but just in case for those you haven't. This movie is from 1942, old school one, no Hollywood garbage, no computer generated airplanes, no silly love plot that nobody really want to see in movie like that. Keep in mind that it's a movie not documentary. Enjoy.

Yes, it is just a movie - Mitchell never came up with the name "Spitfire" - that was an Air Ministry decision. His reaction was, reputedly: "Just the sort of bloody silly name they would chose."

Still, one of my favorite old aircraft movies.
