with a love for airplanes and stories I have never heard before like the story of Johnnie Plagis who flew  alongside Buzz Beurling in Malta.

I knew Buzz of course but not Johnnie Plagis until I got a cyptic comment by the Maltese Falcon.

Buzz Beurling  flew  for Sherbrooke  Airways after the war alongside a former Mosquito pilot with 23 Squadron.

Both met tragic deaths. Beurling in Rome, Italy on May 20, 1948.

Gagnon met his death in Windsor Mills, Quebec, Canada on October 21, 1947.

Now it’s  your  turn to  be  curious isn’t?
