They crashed a county over from me several days ago. They were found. Regulars at Geneseo with their pink L16 and yellow T-50. VERY SAD! :(

What a way to start a Week...

Very sad news. I did not know them personally, but I know they were acquaintances with the crew up in Fawn Grove, as there are several pictures of their T-50 in the various photo albums in the hangar.

In the vintage/warbird aviation community, I don't think there are more than two or three degrees of separation from anyone. If you don't know someone personally, chances are someone you know does. Any loss is a loss for all of us.

Very sad. I did not know them, but I enjoyed seeing both the T-50 and the L-16 at Genny each year.

Blue Skies and Bright Stars to them both...
