Some of you may be aware of my building an X-Wing, and as such may also be aware of my involvement in the local Experimental Aircraft Association, number 43. You may have also heard that an experimental ship went down two days ago. Well, one of the individuals who died was a member of the group, and was one of the very rare, dedicated volunteers who was going to inspect my ship on behalf of the FAA when the time came to certify her. He was an outstanding pilot, a fair-minded individual, and a huge contribution to the experimental aircraft movement in this country. He's gone now, and I just had to put this out there......his skills as a pilot, builder, inspector will be missed, but to lose such a good person.....tragic.
