Disc 1 - The Story Of The Spitfire: Mount of Battle of Britain aces like South African AG 'Sailor' Malan and Johnnie Johnson, the Supermarine Spitfire's deadly duels over Southern England with the Luftwaffe's Messerschmitt Bf 109 helped turn the course of war in the Allies' favour. The classic combination of airframe, Rolls Royce Merlin engine and dual cannon/machine gun armament struck terror into the hearts of the enemy's most fearless flyers and won the type a place in history as a timeless thoroughbred fighter. The spitfire fought in the front line throughout the war, and rightly remains an aviation legend today. Combining dramatic wartime film with colour footage of surviving Spitfires in flight, this is the definitive documentary of a thoroughbred fighter.

Disc 2 - The Story Of The Hurricane: It's eight wing - mounted Colt - Brownings spitting flame, the Hawker Hurricane swooped to despatch over two - thirds of all enemy aircraft destroyed in the Battle of Britain. Courageous squadron commander Douglas Bader, 14 - kill hero 'Cobber Kain, Ginger Kacey - the top Battle of Britain ace with 18 victims - and many other RAF pilots owed their reputations and their lives to this toughest mount of all. The Hurricane was outnumbered but never outclassed, designed to hit the enemy hard, absorb tremendous punishment, yet live to fight another day. Featuring colour footage of the last surviving aircraft alongside original combat film, this is the definitive documentary of a fighter plane that truly changed the course of history.

Disc 3 - De Havilland Mosquito: In 1941 the RAF was being pressed to fill new and ever more demanding roles in the war against Hitler. Although first-class modern fighters, Hurricanes and Spitfires, were in abundant supply, the Air Chiefs had a serious problem with the Bomber force. This uncomfortable gap was filled by a revolutionary fighter bomber, one of the most original and versatile designs of the entire war - the de Havilland Mosquito.

Disc 4 - Fighters Of World War II: The development and operational history of the best and most famous fighter aircraft of World War Two. Some of the fighters in this DVD changed the course of the conflict, others gained spurious fame through the propagandists, some marked the end of an era in fighter design, whilst others signified the beginnings of a new era.

Disc 5 - Air Battles Of World War II: Featuring dramatic action of battles fought during the Second World War. Dogfights over England between the British and German's during the Battle Of Britain, the Japanese Zeros versus the American Hellcats and Corsairs. The famous bombing raids of the 617 Squadron on the Mohne, Sorpe and Eder Dams and against the V2 Rocket launching site at Peenemünde. The USAAF raid on the Ploesti Oilfields in Rumania. The fighter battle for the Island of Malta and the air war over the battlefields of the Kursk Salient between the Russian and German aces.

Disc 6 - Wings Of World War II: One hour of unique full colour, action packed sequences never seen before. A unique film depicting the outstanding and legendry aircraft of World War Two.
