Willie-O 40 Years ago, I was ten. Hendrix died... (33) RE: 40 Years ago, I was ten. Hendrix died... 14 Mar 10

Glenn Miller wasn't exactly "shot down" by the RAF. It's recently been concluded--because someone finally realized that they'd seen it happen--that his plane was off course and had strayed into a dangerous section of the English Channel. The area was the designated dumping zone for bombers returning from missions, which still had un-dropped bombs on board, to dispose of them in the Channel. Unfortunately a Lancaster dropped its bombs directly onto Miller's low-flying plane. Talk about bad luck. A crew member in a third plane in the area observed the incident--don't know why it wasn't reported at the time, or if it was, connected with Miller's disappearance.   

Hendrix. I was fourteen. Didn't quite make an impression on me until later.
