    DescriptionSouthern England. Late summer 1940. The nation is fighting for its very survival. All that lies between invasion and salvation is the 'thin blue line' of RAF Fighter Command and its pilots. Discover what it was like to fly a fighter plane in the Battle of Britain. Who were the Spitfire and Hurricane pilots of 1940? How did they spend a typical day? Pitched together in combat at 30,000 feet, which was the better machine - Spitfire or Me109? Read Life as a Battle of Britain Pilot and then ask yourself: would I have been up to the job?
