The mighty Spitfires flown by England's Royal Air Force (RAF) during the Battle of Britain were a major factor in the victory over Hitler's Luftwaffe bombers. About 740 of these planes with their 1,000 horsepower engines roared into the skies to protect the British. This program recalls the mighty prowess of both the pilots who flew these planes and the planes themselves. Viewers will learn about their ability to fly up to 380 miles per hour while using sophisticated radar that clearly caught Hitler's forces off guard. Many historians believe that the Spitfires allowed the RAF to honor Churchill's request to avoid surrender at all costs.
