    Spitfire trailer: first look at Charles Dance-narrated documentary on Britain's most beloved plane

    The RAF centenary celebrations continue with the release of the documentary Spitfire, telling the story of the fighter plane through first-hand accounts of the last last-surviving combat veterans.

    As shown in the first trailer, the documentary combines specially shot aerial footage from photographer John Dibbs with digitally remastered archive film from the 1940s to trace the aircraft's creation, its role in the Battle of Britain, and its enduring legacy. Narration is provided by the actor Charles Dance.

    Guardian review is a little different.

    Spitfire review – stirring salute to the plane that ruled the skies

    Only belatedly does it consider whether these motorised killing machines might be as problematic as they are emblematic.

    PG-rated and matinee-bound, the film can seem a trifle coy about addressing the consequences of combat.

    For non-buffs, Spitfire will seem as curious or niche as making a film in 2018 about the ack-ack gun.


    Yeah shame it was a British success when we were looking at invasion.
