Airborne combat missions are chronicled, featuring archival footage; and remarks from historians and veterans.

A loner and a social misfit, Beurling’s disdain for protocol branded him an outcast. Regardless, during the Battle of Malta no Allied pilot shot down more enemy planes. Against staggering odds, Beurling’s eagle-eye marksmanship and extraordinary command of his Spitfire helped win a crucial victory against the fascist powers.
