CZECH SPITFIRE CLUB-OFICIÁLNÍ WEB

The association remembers not only the history but also the patriotism, high morale, courage and other significant positive characteristics of over 2500 Czechoslovak citizens fighting in the RAF, which have the potential to become a significant positive example especially for today and our youth.

Spitfire - A feature documentary film, currently in production, about the people and aircraft that helped win the Battle of Britain and ultimately, the Second World War. 

The Supermarine Spitfire was born with a reputation, thanks to its Schneider Trophy racing pedigree. This reputation was cemented by the wartime film, The First of the Few, and not surprisingly it helped to create a few myths around this extraordinary aeroplane. 

Through people personally connected to the events, this film will investigate those myths and tell the story of how the Spitfire, it’s stable-mate, the Hawker Hurricane and its great adversary, the Messerschmitt 109 came into being during the huge advances in aviation in the interwar period. And then how the pilots fared in combat, three miles up in the troposphere. 

Unlike the dozens of programmes that have been made for television, this film is intended for theatrical release. We intend its scope to be larger, its investigations wider-ranging and its storytelling more involving than anything that has come before. We won’t shy away from the engineering aspects of the aircraft’s design, nor neglect the history of the era. Through air-to-air filming, dramatic CGI and re-mastered archive film, we will bring to life the emotional, thoughtful and detailed recollections of the veterans who lived through those dramatic days.
