The Flying Bandit (update)

The Fifth Estate

In 1991, we told the tale of The Flying Bandit. He was one of Air Canada’s best customers. Flying from city to city in Canada – to rob banks. Gilbert Galvan boasted he robbed 21 banks in year. He never used the gun he carried, but he managed to rake in $2 million. He was eventually caught, jailed in Canada and then set free after serving his time. But recently his name grabbed headlines again – and it was not a happy tale.
