Jan Zurakowski has died
I hope this is the right forum to post the news that noted test pilot Jan Zurakowski has died at his home in Canada age 88.
He flew gliders at high school, joined the Polish Air Force in 1934,
shot down 3 enemy aircraft in the Battle of Britain, became a test pilot with Glosters and invented a new aerobatic manoeuvre, the Cartwheel, emigrated to Canada and test flew the CF100 and the mighty Arrow.
The world of aviation is poorer for his passing.
