Not perfectly on point, but Battle of Britain is a great movie. It has some fantastic flying scenes and the DVD can be purchased in the discount stores (Wal-Mart; Target; Fred Myers; etc.) for under $10.

Here's a great Battle of Britan book to read - "Fly For Your Life"
, by Larry Forrester.
It's about Robert Stanford Tuck, Britain's leading ace. He gets shot down and escapes from a prison camp to the Russians with a Polish pilot. Then they both have to escape from the Russians.

Different but good is a British miniseries "Piece of Cake" also about the Battle of Britain, told as an ensemble character study of "Hornet Squadron." Very well done and also occasionally brutally funny.
