The Story of the Donegal Spitfire

Author: Claudy aviation historian Jonny McNee

 

‘The Story of the Donegal Spitfire' charts the events behind the discovery and excavation in 2011 of Pilot Officer Roland ‘Bud’ Wolfe’s Spitfire P8074 from deep

beneath the peat on the Glenshinny mountain in the Inishowen peninsula

 

Mr McNee found the fighter plane last year and embarked on an ambitious year-long project to have it excavated and preserved.

 

In the book, he records the highs and lows he experienced to ensure this unique excavation went ahead, culminating in an emotional visit to Derry in November 2011

by the pilot’s two daughters and other members of the extended family to commemorate their father’s war time career.
