Remembering Poland’s finest
Having had its cinematic release last year, 303 Squadron is now available on DVD, Blu-ray and via digital download. Based on the 1942 book Squadron 303 by Polish author Arkady Fiedler, the 104-minute movie charts the career of Polish Hawker Hurricane pilots serving in the titular unit during the Battle of Britain.
It’s directed by Denis Delic, filmed in Polish and English, and features actors from the UK and Poland including Piotr Adamczyk, Maciej Zakościelny, Cara Theobold and Kirk Baker. The Historic Aircraft Collection’s Hurricane Mk.I P3700, owned by Guy and Janice Black, was flown by warbird pilot Dave Harvey for certain sequences throughout the shoot. The film in all its formats can be ordered from Amazon.
See the next issue of FlyPast – in shops around June 1 – for a chance to WIN a copy of the Blu-ray release.
