What was it really like to be a fighter pilot during the Second World War?
Only a select few pilots ever shot down more than five enemy aircraft and earned themselves the title of ‘Ace’. What made them a breed apart from their fellow fighter pilots? What separated the hunters from the hunted?
HUNTERS IN THE SKY is the definitive film documentary series on the fighter aces of World War Two. Surviving fighter aces from all sides in the conflict - British American, German, Russian, Japanese and many other nationalities – now share their experiences – and provide their own, exclusive, vivid and graphic first hand accounts of aerial combat.
This extraordinary series is fully illustrated with the pick of air combat footage shot at the height of raging dogfights, or as fighter interceptors attack bomber formations. You’ll relive aerial combat as the Aces themselves experienced it - through the gun-sights of their Spitfires, Mustangs, Me109s and Zeros.
