Event description

Description

This new film reveals the incredible previously untold story of the secret Spitfire factories in WW2, where civilians built thousands of the iconic planes. In 1940 the German Luftwaffe bombed and destroyed the Spitfire factories in Southampton believing they had stopped the British being able to manufacture any more of the famous plane. But the British already had plans in place to manufacture Spitfires in complete secrecy in rural areas never previously associated with industry. Young girls, women, boys, elderly men and a handful of engineers went on to build thousands of Spitfires in bus depots, garages, barns. woods and even an hotel!
