The Supermarine Spitfire was one of the British Royal Air Force’s most notorious fighters in World War II and has, along with the North American P-51 Mustang, become one of the biggest favorites of warbird enthusiasts. A documentary about the famed warbird was released earlier this year, screened first on July 9 at the Curzon Mayfair in London as part of the RAF centenary celebrations.

The story of the iconic airplane is told chiefly by male and female pilots who flew the Spitfire during the war and features stunning high definition aerial photography of the airplane flying over the grassy fields and white cliffs of Great Britain along with digitally remastered archive film from the 1940s. As such, the movie is best seen on a big screen, though the movie is available on DVD and BluRay as well.

Spitfire has been screened at a few select cinemas around the world. Reel Stuff Aviation Resources has been selected as the exclusive booking agent for Spitfire in North America. Public and private screenings at museums or other theatre venues can be booked by contacting Ron Kaplan at director@reelstufffilmfest.com or 937-212-8847.

In addition to the screening of the movie, people involved in the making of the film might be available for question and answer sessions, depending on the location and schedule.
