SPITFIRE – Limited Edition Companion Book to the Feature Documentary (John Dibbs and Iain Dougall)
Limited Edition Official Companion Book to the Feature Documentary Film – Spitfire. Authors John Dibbs and Iain Dougall.
‘Sptifire’ celebrates the most famous and beautiful combat aircraft in the world, the legendary Supermarine Spitfire. Featuring exclusive contemporary and historical imagery, ‘SPITFIRE’ tells the stories of the people who designed, built, flew and maintained Reginald Mitchell’s most famous creation. The breathtaking images by award-winning photographer and Director of Aerial Photography John Dibbs, are married with fascinating insights from veterans who flew the Spitfire, and its stablemate the Hurricane, during World War Two.
The development of the Spitfire and its role in some of the most famous air campaigns in history are described and brought vividly to life by the awe-inspiring and moving stories of the remarkable people that flew this aeroplane in combat. Restored archive photography brings the realities of war into sharp focus, reminding us that despite its beauty, the Spitfire was designed for fighting and killing.
The words of the Veterans interviewed for the ‘Spitfire’ Film together with the breath taking images captured by John Dibbs during the filming provided the idea for this Book. As the ‘Last of the Few’ live out the tail of their lives, it is so vitally important that the next generation and beyond understand what happened, do not forget their heroism and do their best to avoid such a catastrophic global war ever happening again.
