Retired Brig. Gen. Robert L. Scott, credited with 13 aerial victories in World War II, died Monday morning, according to the Macon (Ga.) Daily Telegraph. Scott, 97, was the author of “God is My Co-Pilot”—a memoir of his war experiences—that was later made into a film and other books, including “Boring a Hole in the Sky.” Scott, a Macon, Ga., native, graduated from West Point in 1932 and completed pilot training a year later. He commanded the Flying Tigers, formed by Gen. Claire Chennault.
