The Man Who Wanted to Fly

The Man Who Wanted to Fly

Offering a unique insight into a disappearing world, The Man Who Wanted to Fly tells the story of eighty-something-year-old bachelor farmer, Bobby Coote, whose lifelong dream to fly has remained with him since he left school at thirteen.

Joined by his neighbour Sean, Bobby sets aside his own field of dreams by cutting out a runway and even built a hangar in a small rural community in Cavan. Despite a lack of encouragement from his brother Ernie, Bobby has used his life savings to buy a plane in the hope of making his aviation dreams a reality. Even if it is the last thing he does.
