BASED ON A TRUE STORY

1939. After the invasion of their country by the German army, hundreds of Polish pilots joined the RAF to continue the fight among the allies.

One of those squadrons has made History, becoming the most formidable opponent of the Luftwaffe during the Battle of Britain

"Never was so much owed by so many to so few."

- Winston Churchill -

recording the most victories of any squadron in the RAF. Its name, the 303 Squadron. The 303 squadron gave rise to many tales of valour and legend celebrating their combat skills and lives in England. One of which relates that the pilots secretly brought a little piece of Poland with them by distilling their own vodka near the RAF bases. This unknown great story resurfaced decades after the end of the war with the discovery of a vodka flask that belonged to Walerian Zak, one of the 303 Squadron leaders. This was the beginning of the Squadron 303 vodka adventure.
