USA Today: How Christopher Nolan shot those amazing aerial 'Dunkirk' dogfights
https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/mov ... 513407001/
"Most of what's in the film was done with real Spitfires," says Nolan. "The planes are in incredible condition and can do all the dogfighting, all the aerobatics. They are remarkable machines."
"I would be on the ground waving (them off) as they took off," says Nolan. "Craig would run the camera and fly the plane. They would do a half-hour sortie, come back and we’d look at the tape."

IMAX cameras allow for only three-and-a-half minutes of film shooting at one time, so the process was drawn out — each short shoot required a landing, review and film reloading.

"There were literally hundreds of take-off and landings. Up and down. Reload and shoot," says Hosking
