    Default Charley Fox R.I.P.

    It is my sad duty to inform you all that legendary Charley Fox D.F.C. was killed in a motor vehicle accident near Tillsonburg, Ontario on Saturday.

    For those of you who don't know, Tillsonburg is the home to the Canadian Harvard Aircraft Association.

    Details to follow.

    Charley Fox is mentioned in the anecdotal literature as the Spitfire pilot who strafed and injured General Erwin Rommel on 17 July 1944.

    Any update to that incident? The web tells me that an American P-47 may have done the deed.
