[Three Spitfire pilots talk about their war time experiences in this documentary about the Supermarine Spitfire and the Battle of Britain. It is clear that for many pilots the impulse to be gallant was very strong, but, as the first pilot confessed, there could be a very high price to pay for being gallant. Another interesting facet of their experience was the strength of feeling each pilot had for his own particular machine. It felt different from other identical models that they sometimes had to fly and it even had its own particular smell. Start 29:40 minutes in.]
