Director: John T. Davis

Ireland on Sunday is proud to present a new documentary from one of Ireland’s most respected and admired documentary film-makers.
Acclaimed auteur John T. Davis here revisits his passion for aircraft, first touched upon in his powerful and very personal theatrical documentary, The Uncle Jack.

Through a series of interviews with WWII veterans – pilots and WAAFs, civilians and war-brides – Tailwind tells the story of tens of thousands of men and women from every Allied nation who came to Northern Ireland to prepare themselves – and their aircraft – for frontline action; and to participate in the Battle of the Atlantic.
IRELAND • 2008 • 86 MIN

Director John T. Davis and producer Michael Beattie will participate in a post-screening Q&A.
