    His book was the very first aviation book I have ever read. Later, I was given his e-mail address and exchanged a few e-mails with him. He was very kind and humble about his life and career. He had a tremendous impact on me during my childhood. I was lucky enough to meet him back in 2010, when I was already serving in the Czech Air Force, and to tell him that I served because of him and guys just like him. He was so happy to see me in that uniform!

    RIP Sir. You will not be forgotten.

      Zbysek Necas was my Step-Grandad, later to be known as John Pemberton. Like with yourself, I grew up adoring him with hearing his stories of his time with the RAF during the Second World War but also the story on his life escaping the Nazis. To hear that he has impacted others lives (like yourself), brings a huge sense of proudness to me and our family. We adore him so much. Thank you for sharing your story with us.

    This is very sad news. I had luck to meet Zbyšek personaly in Hradec Kralové, had great chat with him and have signed his book. R.I.P. dear Zbyšek.
