Military aviation is chock full of stories of heroism, extraordinary bravery and courage in the line of duty. Numerous pilots and crew over the past century have distinguished themselves while under fire, demonstrating their love of comrades and country, finding ingenious (and in some cases, positively miraculous) ways of thwarting the odds which were heavily stacked against them.
So, from December onward, we’ll be launching Milaviate’s Hero of the Month. Each month, we’ll post a tribute to a new hero from around the wide world of military aviation here on the website. If you have a nomination in mind, we’re very open to suggestions. You can leave us a post on the Facebook page on fill out our contact form on the site.
