Default RE: Blue Max on Cinemax (ww1)

You must be talking about Billy Barker the Canadian Ace. And his last episode in a Sopwith Snipe nearly killed him. Were it not for the fact that he crashlanded near an aid station he most likely would have died. There is a book about him.. its his biography. His death was much celebrated in Canada when he died testing a new aircraft. He flew with one hand and didn't fully finish a loop. Probably was pilot error. Yes his life was pretty colorful and may make a good movie.. His Camel was numbered #6313. The most combati missions for any Camel of WWI.
