About Plane Hunters

Born out of passion for aviation and history.

Plane Hunters is a mulit-media platform for the historic aviation enthusiast.

We produce short films and podcasts on anything from Sopwiths to Spitfires or Mustangs to Migs. We’re often out and about with cameras and microphones at museums, airshows and airfields.

We’re always on the look out for new stories of interest and often work alongside other organisations.
