The Defender

This documentary is about Bob Diemert of Carman, Manitoba, and his dream of building the world's next great fighter plane.

    «Call him what you will, dreamer, oddball, but we should celebrate his ingenuity and grit. Canada needs more folks like him and we should support people like him before we send our money outside our borders» — jestlloyd, 2 Jan 2012

    «It is unfortunate that the film portrays Diemert and sidekick, Chris Ball, as oddballs – which, to a certain extent, they really are. But look at what South Africa came up with 20-plus years after the fact and tell me it doesn’t have ‘Bob Diemert’ written all over it! http://www.firstpost.com/fwire/first-africa-built-military-plane-unveiled-94224.html» — Bruff, 10 Nov 2011
