Buzz Beurling on CBC radio
I've always been a fan of George Beurling and his feats in the skies above Malta. A friend and I have been e-mail back and forth about Beurling and the new Osprey book on Malta Spitfire Aces. I'll put up a review of the Osprey book in the next few days, but until then here is an interview with Beurling from CBC radio. I assume it was taped in 1944, but it was not aired until May 21, 1948, a day after Beurling's death in a Norseman crash in Italy. There is also a nice pic of Buzz with his RCAF Spitfire IX MH883 VZ-B of 412 Squadron.
