Ben Scaman of Banff, Alberta, was flying Spitfires with the Royal Canadian Air Force when the V1 flying bombs, often called doodlebugs, began to rain down on England in 1944. Remarkably, Ben pioneered the technique in which a skilled pilot could tip one of these murderous missiles off balance, causing it to crash harmlessly into the countryside.
