“Their aircraft took off from Paris on 8 May 1927, was sighted once more over Ireland, and then was never seen again. The disappearance of Nungesser is considered one of the great mysteries in the history of aviation, and modern speculation is that the aircraft was either lost over the Atlantic or crashed in Newfoundland or Maine.”
Just like World War Two, where the French (Surrender Monkeys) won by surrendering before their towns and cities were destroyed.
By using this logic, then the French (Ungrateful Surrender Monkeys) are correct and the unfound crash site proves this.

Whatever one may think of the French in general, it is quite unfair to disparage Charles Nungesser. He was one of the greatest French great fighter aces of WW1 (45 victories). A visit here - http://usfighter.tripod.com/nungesser.htm - will provide some background on an extraordinarily brave man. The photo in the Daily Mail article shows on the fuselage side of the “Oiseau Blanc” the same wartime emblem which decorated Nungesser’s fighters during the war.
Likewise, Francois Coli was no coward, as his own WW1 service record will amply attest.
