Okay, I read the article - and I really don't understand what your beef is ... ?

Quote: "The Imperial War Museum calls Frantisek the "top scorer" of the Battle of Britain, and he is generally considered to be one of the top scorers of the entire war, despite his death in its very early stages."

So why not make a movie about him, and why not write an article about it? I suppose I'm a bit dense, but I couldn't find anything objectionable in the article.

Btw, since we're on the subject - my father remembered fondly the Polish airmen who took him in when he had been shot down over France. They had an aerodrome to themselves and seemed to be operating with considerable autonomy. And there was a language issue. It took a couple of weeks for him to get back to England; until then, he was 'missing in action'.
