George Guynemer's demise. . .
Tue, 8 Aug 1995 02:57:03 -0400

All this talk about the event of the disappearance of Georges Guynemer brings
forth in me the thought that with the scarcity of hard evidence, a number of
scenarios exist that would explain away his vanishing. It is possible that
the airman, knowing that the Americans were in the war, and it being only a
matter of time, and that he had well and truly done his duty, both in and
over the front, and in the public eye, the aircraftman flew his rather
ordinary looking Spad Fighter to a field in Switzerland, set it ablaze, and
retired to live a peaceful life. They took his humanity but maybe he got
away with his life.
