Pisarek's story is interesting and so typical of many Polish aviators who fight for the RAF and USAAF in WW2.

In the US, we're more familiar with Bolesław Gładych, better known to us as "Mike" Gladych.

Beautiful Work. I like the tribute color scheme to W/Cdr Pisarek.
We should never forget the brave pilots of WW II.

Cheers, Mike
