Rest in peace.. sad a pilot had to leave this world, but I'm sure we can all agree that if we have to go, what a way to do it. I would want to die doing what I loved most, flying.

Today has been a horrible day for crashes. RDU closed, as well as a F-16 midair collision in Indiana.

If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!
