The Last Of The Few takes a detailed look at the Battle Of Britain Memorial Flight as it prepares for its 50th year of display & commemorative flying with a thrilling display at the Biggin Hill International Air Show in 2007. As Spitfires and Hurricanes undergo servicing and maintenance, the Avro Lancaster heavy bomber of the Flight is stripped back to its skin for a major overhaul. We follow the work involved as these aircraft are reinstated in the markings and colour schemes of machines flown by courageous and outstanding aircrew of World War II. Exclusive interviews with personnel of the Memorial Flight reveal the passion and enthusiasm that lies behind the expertise of those who maintain and fly these magnificent aircraft. Pilots who have previously flown the latest jet fighters describe the excitement and techniques of flying these classic warplanes, especially the huge Lancaster bomber. And in stark contrast, interviews with veteran aircrew of Fighter and Bomber Command, provide a chilling reminder of the reality of operational flying in hostile skies. Dramatic archive footage from WWII illustrates differences and similarities with the flight of today, while new material, shot with the full cooperation of the Memorial Flight, on the ground and in the air, allows us to participate in the Flight’s preparations for the display at Biggin Hill and the display itself.
