Equinox ‘Spitfire’ (1990’s UK TV Documentary)

Comparison between the Spitfire & Messerschmitt 109

Equinox examines the creation of the legend surrounding the Spitfire aircraft, namely that a dwindling handful of Spitfires flown by a small band of debonair young playboys defeated the German Luftwaffe in the Battle of Britain in summer 1940, and suggests that, like most military legends, it is not entirely true. The programme makes a `road test’ comparison between the Spitfire Mark V with its main adversary, the last surviving German Messerschmitt 109 captured in 1942.
