Ugo Drago passed away?

Hello!

Rumours has reached me that the Italian fighter ace Ugo Drago (http://surfcity.kund.dalnet.se/italy_drago.htm) passed away during May 2007.
Is there anyone who can verify this and if so, have an exact date on his passing?

Best wishes/Håkan

Re: Ugo Drago passed away?

I can unfortunately confirm the sad news, but I have not the exact date...

A huge loss of a great man, a great pilot and a great commander.

P.S. For some more details (in Italian) and images, have a look here: http://www.150gct.it/modules.php?nam...er=asc&start=0
