“I was waiting for a movie about Squadron 303 my entire life – so the people in Poland and all around the world could see on their own eyes a story of great Polish heroes, including my grandfather – Sergeant Stanislaw Slowikowski. That story is full of emotions, drama, brotherhood and an unimaginable joy coming from the triumph against overwhelming forces of the enemy. It’s a movie that everyone should watch!”

– Antoni Dmochowski, grandson of Sergeant Stanislaw Slowikowski from 303 Squadron
