Now here's somebody who's led an interesting life. He’s Gino Narboni. And no, he’s not Italian.
“I started in North Africa, in Algeria,” he said.
He’s a softspoken 90-something-year-old man now, but what a life he’s led. He ran off to join General de Gaulle’s free French movement. When they asked him what he wanted to do, he said, "I want to fly. Ha! I was barely 20 at the time.”
The free French didn’t have any airplanes then, but Gino eventually got his wish.
“I was sent to the United States for pilot training,” he said.
