Over Britain, Malta, the Channel, the North Africa desert, the beaches of Normandy, they wheeled, dived and fought for mastery of the skies. In the darkest days of the war, the very names Spitfire and Hurricane symbolised the mood of Britain's defiance.
Narrated by Douglas Bader, with special contributions by some of the other surviving fighter Aces themselves, Fight for the Sky is the unique story, told in words and pictures, of the aircraft and their pilots, and of what it was like to face the Bf 109, Bf 110 and the Focke - Wulf 190 alone above the clouds.
