Behind the scenes at the Spitfire Factory

Regular summer visitors to the Memorial at Capel-le-Ferne may have been lucky enough to have seen and heard a Spitfire paying its own respects to the Few.

Some of the amazing aircraft that grace the Memorial with regular flypasts are owned and operated by the Biggin Hill Heritage Hangar restoration group, which operates regular trips along the coast taking in the National Memorial to the Few.

The group is now the subject of a new TV series, Inside the Spitfire Factory, which has been made by Whitworth Media and will be screened on More4, beginning on Monday 28 September at 9pm.

The six-part series follows Spitfire Factory owner Peter Monk and his team of restoration experts as they bolt, rivet and hammer a 70-year-old Spitfire back to flying condition.

The series has taken more than a year to make, and looks set to provide a fascinating insight into this amazing, iconic, aircraft.

A trailer for the series can be seen here.
