    Lt. Meira was indeed a brave pilot. Low level bombing runs on defended positions was extremely dangerous business, even late in the war. Brazil can certainly be proud of his bravery and will to fight. Great history, thanks for the post.

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them
