"I am a big fan of these aircraft and have a collection of DVD's on the subject of World War 2 Fighter Planes. This is a very dissapointing set. I based my purchase on the review I read on this sight, so when I saw this copy I was amazed. The film is of course grainy (although the previous review says it's not!). It's lod it's bound to be grainey! 3 Hours yes but did the person who wrote the review actually watch them? I wonder. Because there is a hell of a lot of repetition across the four featured aircraft, of interviews, of flying footage and even V/O coverage of aspects of the wars these craft featured in. And when the famous German Figther ace Eric Hartman is talking the editor cuts away from him to show more footage of aircraft in action. WHY? I would rather have had a chance to see this quite rare footage of the pilot talking and the sound quality is quite poor so it is very difficult to catch what he is saying which is compounded by the fact that we cant see him talking. I had hoped for more indepth knowlege of the different types and factual information rather than all this repetition.
Definitely nice tro see the interviews with these ighter ace's but that not what it sais on the tin!

"As an avid reader - film viewer of this period of history anything available as long preserved as this is invaluable.
It is surprosong that so much is yet to be learned form this era however, the expose of the engineering and development behind these fighter aircraft realises that, unfortunately, war necessitates the rapid developement in egineering to give an edge to its exponents in the "mechanisation" of war. These DVD's provide an insight that is unavailable from other film in my collection. For those who share an interest in this period of history this DVD is a requirement and should be included in one's collection."
Great buy

"The package contains 2 DVD's, which covers 4 aircraft, for a total of 3 hours. The Hurricane, The Spitfite, The 109, and the 110 are all coverd in depth. The footage on the videos is of good quality, and not grainy. It shows not only historical footage of each aircraft, but also numerous flights of newly restored aircraft. The narration is easy to understand and follow. This is a great buy for any aviation fan, and I can see someone watching this a few times and not allowing it to collect dust on a shelf. I bought it used, so I deffinitly got my moneys worth on this one."
