Battle of Britain pilot Archie McInnes dies after 100th birthday

A Battle of Britain veteran has died hours after celebrating his 100th
birthday, taking the number of surviving members of "The Few" to five, his
biographer said.

Archie McInnes, who retired to Cambridge, flew Hurricanes during the battle
in the skies over southern England.

He completed his pilot training aged 21 and was commissioned the next day.

He celebrated his 100th birthday on Wednesday. He then died that night.
