Last pilot of the Dambusters raids has passed (yipee, I get to mention the dog again).

Sqn Ldr Les Munro died in hospital in his native New Zealand on Tuesday following heart problems according to the N?ew Zealand Bomber Command Association.  There are now only two surviving crew members of the Dambusters missions: Canadian former front gunner Fred Sutherland and British former bomb aimer George Johnson.

Sqn Ldr Munro was still flying at the age of 95 and had co-piloted an Avro Anson plane in January.  The canine Laci approves.

None of this has anything to do with black labrador retrievers with politically incorrect names.
