Well, we'll try to print up the 2nd review on this fine series unless it disappears into "Cyberspace" as in the 1st. Maybe just facts this time ? As a pilot, an A/C buff & dare we say a self proclaimed Historian of WW2, I really liked this series as a fictional account of the RAF's early years of WW2. For the Spitfire fan or addict this is a great DVD series with lots of T/O's, patrolling, dog-fighting, in-cockpit action shots, etc. Of course the true Historian will see many inaccuracies such as in the early part of the war the RAF never had Spitfires stationed in France. At this early part they flew Hawker Hurricanes in France. But, you get to witness as well as hear Spitfires doing what they do best & to me personally that alone is well worth the price of this DVD series in itself. I won't bore anyone with the wrong marks of Spitfires Hornet Squadron were flying when they returned to English soil to fight in the Battle of Britain or the reasons why? A really great cast of characters that fit their parts & no Hollywood heroes. A little humor, romance, sadness, fear, bravery with a touch of insanity all mixed in. Just as in a real squadron personality clashes could & did happen as in Hornet Squadron. A great series & quite like it was in reality or so I've been told as well as reading of such. Actually the wife & I got into this series looking forward to meeting the boys almost as if they were family as each segment opened. The new pilots, the old gang, no favorites dealing with MIA or KIA. We especially enjoyed the review narration at the beginning of each segment catching us up on the last segment to start the next. And the music just took us away to a bygone era. DEFINITELY FIVE STARS.
