Remembering Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and the mysterious circumstances of his death

Which one is your favorite book?
How often did you and do you get inspired by it?

[Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and the Little Prince
Statue by Christiane Guillaumet, Place Bellecour in Lyon]

As you may know, The Petit Prince is my favorite book. After celebrating Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's birth, today we're talking about this death.

On July 31st, 1944, the French writer and aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, while being on duty during WWII, left the military base in Naples to carry out a mission in solo flight. He's disappeared with his own plane and his last message was a radio silence.
So the mystery of his vanishing began, while letting generations of fans puzzled about his fate and his death. It was only after almost sixty years, in 2003, that the remains of the aircraft were located and found beyond any doubt and the mystery of his vanishing was partially solved.
