187. Eugene Bullard. WWI Flying and fighter ace pilot
Eugene Bullard. WWI Flying and fighter ace pilot

see his wikipedia page.

amazing story.

Ameria would not let him be a fighter pilot. but Franc did.

Part native American and an ex patriot in Paris, he had to flee the Nazis in 1940-1 as they were STILL pissed at him for shooting down their pilots in WWI.

He ended up an elevator operator on wall steet, i believe.

and died in relative obscurity.

I am working on a screenplay which deals with his story.I have done a lot of research on him.
