The story of Colin Pay, a crop dusting pilot from Scone, NSW and the restoration of a Spitfire fighter to flying condition. During World War II, more than 650 Spitfires were delivered to the RAAF. This one is a Vickers Supermarine Spitfire MK VIII built in 1944. It never saw operational service and for many years was kept at Sydney Technical College where it was used as an instructional airframe. The film shows how Colin Pay laboriously rebuilt the aircraft from a corroded hulk into a superbly restored flying machine. The film has some of the best air to air colour footage ever shot of a Spitfire in Australia. There's also rare archive footage showing Spitfires in Darwin in 1943 and interviews with pilots who flew them, including the former Australian Prime Minister, Sir John Gorton. There's a look behind the hangar doors at other aircraft in Col Pay's World War II collection, including the Mustang, Curtiss Kittyhawk, Harvard and Nakajima Oscar. The ideal film for aviation enthusiasts with some fine flying sequences of the world's best known fighter
