The following quote was taken from a recent Maltese newspaper report.
"Adrian Borg, a 32-year-old motorcyclist from Qawra, died in a collision in Burmarrad on Sunday afternoon.
The police said that Borg was driving a Kawasaki when the accident occurred involving a Toyota car, driven by a 37-year-old woman, of Guardamangia. The motorcyclist died on impact as a result of his serious injuries.
The driver of the Toyota and a passenger escaped injuries but had to be treated for shock".
Adrian Borg was a very likable lad and was a member of the Hell Fighters squadron. He was known to us all as HF_Scuba, a callsign adopted due to his line of work. He was a scuba instructor in Malta.
Adrian Borg was an exceptionally likeable young man, and will always be remembered for his enthusiasm, friendliness and sense of humour. He resided in Malta where he was employed as a diving instructor. A keen aviation enthusiast, he formed a jet fighter squadron within the realm of Lock On Modern Air Combat in January 2006, named The Fourth Element Fighter Squadron.
The Hell Fighters wish to extend their deepest sympathy to the family and friends of HF_Scuba. He'll certainly be missed by one and all. May he rest in peace.
At 1500 hours (US Central) on Sunday, April 29, 2007, the Hell Fighters will pay their last respects to a man who made this world a better place to live in. We would like to extend an invitation to all interested pilots regardless of squadron, to join us on this day. The game will be hosted on the Hyper Lobby and will be played in IL2 Sturmovik/Forgotten Battles version 4.08m. Communications will be in the Hell Fighters channel on the Com Central Teamspeak2 server.

For pilots who are unable to practice during the week, please be advised that a rehearsal flight will take place at 3.00pm on Sunday, April 22. We would appreciate that all pilots attend this rehearsal so that we can determine if there are any current lagg issues.
The host for all practice sessions and the actual mission will most likely be HF_RB, so do not hesitate to join the game. The password for entry to all practice sessions and the actual mission will be hellfighter
