WARBIRDS OVER EUROPE: The Fighters
Filmed in high definition with stunning aerial footage, War Birds Over Europe tells how the epic arms race in the skies was won during World War Two. Aircraft like the Spitfire, Hurricane, Mustang and Thunderbolt battled it out with deadly German Messerschmitts and Focke Wulfs in a merciless fight for aerial supremacy. War Birds Over Europe explores what made these impressive fighter planes so special; what they did, how they did it, and what they were like to fly in combat. Multiple interviews with veteran fighter pilots along with additional commentary and expert analysis from modern-day pilots brings the story of these aircraft vividly to life. Narrated by Sir Patrick Stewart. Discovery Military Channel 2010.
