    Great selection!

    Miller’s plane disappeared over the English Channel. The reason why is unknown, and many ideas abound. This Wikipedia entry reports that a popular hypothesis was shown to be untrue: that the plane was struck by a bomb being jettisoned over the channel by a bomber mission that was returning from an aborted mission (certain areas of the English channel were deemed off limits so that bombers could safely dispose of unused bombs after aborted missions).

    His loss was our loss.
