They were the 'it' girls of their era: the remarkable female pilots of World War II who overturned convention and took to the skies. These pioneers of aviation and equality were part of the Air Transport Auxiliary (ATA), delivering aircraft to the RAF during Britain's darkest hours. Using archive footage and testimonies from the surviving members and their relatives, Spitfire Women captures the stories of these unsung heroines, whose tales of courage and determination remain largely
unrecognized.
