The Last of the Few

1 x 1 hr for the History Channel. Takes a detailed look at the ‘Battle Of Britain Memorial Flight’ as it prepares for its 50th year of display & commemorative flying.

Takes a detailed and in depth look at the Battle Of Britain Memorial Flight as it prepares for its 50th year of display & commemorative flying including a display at the Biggin Hill International Air Show-2007.

Exclusive interviews with personnel of the Memorial Flight reveal the passion and enthusiasm that lies behind the expertise of those who maintain and fly these magnificent aircraft. Pilots who have previously flown the latest jet fighters describe the excitement,as well as the challenges, of flying these classic war planes, especially the huge Lancaster bomber.

In stark contrast, interviews with veteran aircrew of Fighter and Bomber Command provide a chilling reminder of the reality of operational flying in hostile skies. Dramatic black and white, and colour archive footage from WWII illustrates differences and similarities with the Flight of today.
