G.W.Agiasottelis 5

GEORGE W. AGIASOTTELIS

As promised we are starting to add more airmen of Greek parentage, not only pilots, who flew during WW2 and other conflicts. Today we present you a short story of a Greek American ball turret gunner who flew 26 missions with 390th BG, B-17s and acted as a co-pilot when their bomber severely damaged and half of the crew bailed out under captains orders. He chooses to stay and helped him to split-s their bomber in order to put out the engine fire through the dive. They were lucky to live and fight again over Europe. You can read more about his story at the following link:

THEODORE LAMBROS

Dear friends, we added Theodore Lambros, short biography in Fighter Pilots section. With him, we finally presented all the pilots covered in our two volumes and from now on new biographies will be added covering not only pilots but bombardiers, navigators, and gunners. As you will soon discover this website will not act as an advertisement for our book but will supplement them. More photos from unknown airmen of Greek heritage as well as unique profiles of the planes they flew will be added. Our aim is to create a place where every Hellenic Parentage airmen can be easily found here, in a big database. We hope that you will enjoy our new venture!

JOHN AGORASTOS PLAGIS

Dear friends we added John Agorastos Plagis, short biography in Fighter Pilots section. The unique feature of this biography is that except two very small paragraphs in the begging and the end, the text was written by him, in a letter we have the honor to posses in our collection. Visit his subpage in the following link and take a look in some great photos and profiles while serving with the No. 64 Squadron. Our team believes that while reading the profiles caption many things about his personal Spitfires during his duty with the No. 64 Squadron will be clarified....enjoy.
