Man O War: Detachable Pontoons, Armed
DeLeon grew up with his father, a plane maker, who inspired DeLeon with a passion for flying from a young age. He never knew his mother and avoided school as best he could, flying with his father to remote corners of Portugal. They moved to the US, where his Latin Ways intrigued the girls and charmed other boys. When he turned 13, his father died crashing an experimental plane.
With no one keeping track of him, DeLeon joined the military as an aviator. During the war he relegated to gunner… until the day his pilot had to bow out at the last minute due to a sudden flu. They turned to DeLeon, who amazed them with his expert flying. Soon he was a decorated Ace.
DeLeon in Around the World in 60 Days
Guest Starring: Thomas Kretchman and The Shamrock
While filling his plane, DeLeon spotted a flash over the hill. Shots burst out around him; he threw the propeller and got in as it rolled forward under fire. He barely made it off the ground and turned to take on the ambushers when a plane dove toward him out of the sky. Despite several shots piercing Man-o-War, he managed to maneuver, blinding the following plane with the smoke pouring from his plane, before rising up and finishing off his ambusher.
Later, DeLeon hired Thomas to carry his plane across a long gap in the Pacific where refueling would have been difficult. Enemy agents tried to storm the decks of the Princess Greta to sabotage DeLeon’s plane… but were thwarted when Thomas broke out a stash of tommy guns and chased them over the side. The Shamrock, a fellow passenger, noticed a few raiders trying to sabotage Man-o-War and joined the fight!
