The Rocketeer 7 - 9

VIEW IN EDSHED

Over 20 years ago the film 'The Rocketeer' was launched by Dave Stevens.  Many of our children will not have even heard of this film but here it is, a remake in honour of the original for them to enjoy and be inspired by! 

The film is set during WW2 and features a young boy who dreams of flying.   One day the peace of this small farming community is shattered by a police chase. 

A tragedy is on the cards but luckily 'The Rocketeer' was on hand to save the day!
