  • Chuck Yeager

    I could have put this elsewhere but seeing as how he is tied so closely to US military aviation it is best placed here to note the passing of the man today, Dec. 7th. Quite the pilot and quite the man may he fly with the angels now. Supersonic, of course...

    A great American for sure.

    One of the only shot down escapees who was allowed to return to active flying in WW 2.

        Pakistanis adored him. Don't know if India of that time hated him. I pray he finds peace in the afterlife.
