By all accounts, a great guy.

A nickel on the grass, my friend. Cleared for takeoff and unrestricted climb; proceed on-course. :(

Always sad to hear. I was present many years ago at the crash of a T-38 at HAFB. The demo teams make it look simple. It's easy to lose sight of the reality. A pleasure to watch them, a sorrow to see this occur.
