Laguna’s Spitfire Legacy: Remembering the Forgotten Few

Two Masters Students Sofia Hartwell and Emma Middleton from the City’ University of London, needed a hard-hitting story and subject for their final project dissertation submission in Masters in Journalism and Broadcasting in 2020. This saw them produce a 15 minute film, that ensured all the skills they had learnt employed to produce a highly “polish”ed end result for submission.

The story takes the viewer through the journey of the project origins, the history of Spitfire P8331 and her last pilot Wing Commander Piotr Laguna. This included following the journey of recovery of the aircraft, and contacting and befriending the Laguna Family as well as talking to the descendants of the Polish Air Force Pilots, Crews and Ground Crews about what it means to them to see such an ambitious project come to such global attention.

We really appreciated how well both Sofia and Emma put together this excellent piece of work. This truly captures the essence and feeling of all whom are involved with or eagerly watch on as the prospect of the world’s only genuine flying 303 Squadron Spitfire P8331 “Sumatra” RF-M takes off, as well as becoming the world’s only MKIIb Spitfire flying too.
