yes, sad. but as ive said on here before, there are only a few pilots that should try low level 'batics in certain types of planes. for all i know, he could have been one of those guys, but doing a roll just afer takeoff is best left to guys like bob Hoover.

the first fatal crash i witnessed was at a small flyin at Calhoun Ga back in 83, on a private strip parallel to I-75-several old jets and a couple of C47s can still be seen there.

an incredibly experienced airshow pilot took off in his Citaubria, snap rolled as he usually did in his performance, and stalled out. I couldnt believe it. I wish they would wait till they get a little airspeed up before they do that.

Poor guy.

There are old pilots, and there are bold pilots...

but there are no old, bold pilots.

Not much consolation, and of course a great shame, but I suppose he died doing what he loved. How many of us will be able to put that on our headstones?
