The last flight of the last spanish republican pilot

Recommended Posts

Yesterday the last of the Spanish republican air force pilot, Miguel Ángel Sanz "Vallecas", passed away at the age of 100 in Marbella, Spain.

 

Aviadores republicanos

 

He was the last commander of the most famous fighter unit, "la tercera escuadrilla" flying the I-16s (there's one official skin ingame from his fellow pilot José María Bravo) and later was president of the ADAR (Asociación de Aviadores de la República - Republican Aviators Association).

 

Now the Tercera will is complete in the eternal heavens, glory to all those brave pilots.
