The Spitfire Series

Hosted by John Hudson, the UK military's chief survival instructor, The Spitfire Series explores one of the most iconic planes of all time - the Spitfire.

Featuring interviews with Spitfire pilots, engineers and historians, this series accompanies a spectacular, world record breaking expedition - The Longest Flight. This will see two intrepid aviators attempt to fly a Silver Spitfire around the world, taking in some of the most famous landmarks on the planet and taking the Spitfire to countries that haven't seen it since the 40s, and some that have never seen it before.
