Official teaser for The Shamrock Spitfire released
From Pixel Revolution Films and 101 Films International, The Shamrock Spitfire tells the quite incredible story of this Irish fighter pilot Brendan ‘Paddy’ Finucane – known the world over at ‘Spitfire Paddy’. At the age of just 21, became the youngest ever Wing Commander in the Royal Air Force (RAF). By then, he was one of the RAF’s tenacious and most celebrated fighter aces of World War Two – and who was gone too soon…
The story of a life shaped by fate, courage, and destiny, it is also a story of the power of grit and determination and triumph over adversity, The Shamrock Spitfire is a tribute to a now largely forgotten Irish hero - a man who in his short life inspired a nation and became a living legend.
The Shamrock Spitfire is slated for release later this year.
