During WWII, a remarkable band of female pilots fought against all odds for the right to aid the war effort. These trailblazers were part of the Air Transport Auxillary - thousand strong organisation that delivered aircraft to the frontline RAF during Britain's darkest hours.

Spitfire Women is the dramatic story of these unsung heroines, who came from across the world to fight for Britain but whose tales of courage and determination remain largely untold.
