to Herberts Cukurs, a Latvian aviation pioneer who built at least 3 own design aircraft and set long distance record solo flights with them in the 1930’s (Latvia-Gambia and Riga-Tokyo), he went to Brazil after WW-II and was hunted down by Mossad agents who attrated him to Uruguay under fake intention of starting an aviation business and was assassinated in 1965-02-23, accused of war crimes as “The Butcher/The Hangman of Riga” during his membership of the Arajs Kommando, since he would not stand trial for his alleged participation in the Holocaust.
