    Prodigy lead singer dead at 49.

    Keith Flint, lead singer of dance-electronic band The Prodigy, has been found dead at his home near London. He was 49.

    Flint was the stage persona of the band, whose hits “Firestarter” and “Breathe” fused techno, breakbeat and acid house music. The band sold 30 million records, taking rave music from an insular community of party-goers and bringing it to an international audience.

    Last real life Great Escape prisoner dies aged 99


    Former squadron leader Dick Churchill was one of 76 airmen whose escape from the Stalag Luft III camp in Nazi Germany in 1944 was immortalised in the Hollywood film starring Steve McQueen.

    Mr Churchill, who lived in Crediton, Devon, died on Wednesday, aged 99.

    Chief of the Air Staff Sir Stephen Hillier said: "He was from a selfless generation who offered bravery and sacrifice to secure our freedom."

    "On behalf of the RAF as a whole I would like to offer my condolences to the friends and family of Flt Lt Richard 'Dick' Churchill, one of the RAF personnel involved in the Great Escape.

    "He will be sorely missed. Per Ardua [the RAF motto]."
    99 years is a darn good run....Godspeed Flight Lt. Churchill......

    The Great Escape


    • Stalag Luft III opened in spring 1942, and held air forces personnel only
    • At maximum it held 10,000 prisoners of war, covered 59 acres, with five miles (8km) of perimeter fencing
    • Some 600 prisoners helped dig three tunnels, which were referred to as Tom, Dick and Harry
    • The "Great Escape" happened on the night of 24 to 25 March, 1944
    • Seventy-six men attempted a getaway through tunnel Harry, which was 102m (336ft) long and 8.5m deep
    • Seventy-three of them - including Mr Churchill - were recaptured by the Germans within three days. Two-thirds of them were executed on Hitler's orders
    • The camp was liberated by Soviet forces in January 1945

    The first movie I ever saw via VCR. My favorite movie of all time. Watch it several times per year and recently read the book and a book that was about what happened afterward in the hunt for the nazis who killed the escapees. Awesome and humbling.

    Brett, is there anyway to pin this thread at the top so we don't have to search multiple pages to post? Thanks.
