June 2000 - for eighty-year old Peter Walker, ex-Battle of Britain pilot, an unexpected new challenge is about to begin.
As he re-lives past glories, losses, wartime experiences, family memories and the heady days of blue skies and battles, he searches for the answer to the biggest question so far!
Personal, charming, funny and inventive, ‘Spitfire Solo’ blends theatre, music and film.

Beyond Glory gathers these men together in the present to look back on the defining moments of their lives and to examine the meaning of courage, duty, and ultimately, humility.
