THE INSPIRING LIFE AND TRAGIC DEATH OF AMERICA'S GREATEST P-51 MUSTANG ACE.
CAROLINA ACE is a real life superhero style blockbuster epic feature film that tells the incredible underdog story of a young American fighter pilot, George Preddy Jr., who against all odds persevered and fulfilled his dream of serving in the skies and through sheer will and tenacity becomes one of the greatest fighter pilots in history!
When George climbed into the cockpit of the legendary P-51 Mustang it became his "super suit" in which he accomplished incredible aerobatic feats while defending freedom around the world. This real super hero went from mild-mannered underdog to the top P-51 Mustang ace of World War II.
After George’s sister died suddenly at a young age, the teenager is forced to realize just how short life is, and from that moment on becomes determined to do more with his life, serve a cause greater than his own, and live out his dreams. With eagle eye focus he dedicates his every action to improving himself in order to prove himself, to those that don't believe he has what it takes to be a fighter pilot.
After arriving at his fighter base the commanding officer asks "are you sure that's the right guy?!" With quiet resolve George Preddy Jr. honed his skills and led by example, respecting his crew and helping his fellow pilots. Not only was he the right guy, he becomes a squadron leader and was well on his way to becoming the greatest ace in history when tragedy struck. On Christmas Day of 1944 his life was suddenly cut short by a shocking friendly fire incident. Allies on the ground were aiming for the enemy, but their bullets hit his Mustang. George was just 25 when he died.
A few months later, George's younger brother Bill Preddy, a P-51 Mustang pilot following in his beloved brothers footsteps, was also killed in action by ground-fire. The legacy of the Preddy Brothers becomes legend as the Preddy family endures the loss of both sons in the air wars of World War II.
CAROLINA ACE is a powerful epic set during the largest air battles the world has ever seen, told through the most human story of an everyman that evolves from the typical American life to traverse the world in the latest fighter aircraft to defend the freedom he holds dear. This visually stunning "Superhero Blockbuster" style film will inspire audiences of all ages while leaving them breathless from the experience of the real life experience as a top fighter ace in the largest air war in history!

"HE WAS THE GREATEST FIGHTER PILOT WHO EVER SQUINTED THROUGH A GUNSIGHT..."
- General John C. Meyer, United States Air Force Commander
In the fall of 1944, George Preddy Jr. was the leading ace in the European Theater, and was celebrated as a hero and celebrity during a tribute to his military medals and honors in the Memorial Coliseum in his hometown of Greensboro, North Carolina.
George could have stayed home after serving in both Australia and Europe by this time, and was offered a job to stay in the United States and use his ace status and celebrity to sell war bonds.
He declined the offer to remain in the U.S. and was eager to return to his squadron.
At the time of his death George Preddy Jr. was well on his way to becoming the top ace in history.
His life was cut short from a tragic friendly fire incident on Christmas Day of 1944 during the infamous Battle of the Bulge.
