From the BBC website:
"A Battle of Britain pilot who once told off the Duke of Cambridge for "flying choppers" has died at the age of 99.

The Battle of Britain Memorial Trust said it was with great sadness that it announced the death of Flying Officer Kenneth Astill Wilkinson AE.

Mr Wilkinson, of Solihull, West Midlands, was "a true gentleman", the statement added"

RIP
We will remember

Very sad to hear about this. A brave man indeed as they all were. May he rest in peace.

All the best.
