WWII Czech air ace František Peřina dies- May 06, 2006.
One of the greatest Czech heroes of World War II, General Frantisek Perina, has died in Prague at the age of 95. General Perina won a reputation as an excellent fighter pilot during the Battles of France and Britain, but was forced out of the Czechoslovak Army by the Communists after the war. He went into exile in 1949 and spent many years in Britain and the United States before returning to the Czech Republic in 1993. The general received many state honours both at home and abroad, including the Czech Order of the White Lion.
