Tragic to lose a fellow flyer
By Jim McClain


January 28, 2006

As a retired aviator and warbird flyer, thanks for the from the heart story on the crash. Most papers would exploit the tragedy. You put the humanity back in.

Tragic to lose a fellow flyer, but he did what all of us, as professional aviators, have silently chosen to do... stay with the bird and do all things possible to preserve human life, even if it costs us ours.
