Another legend goes West.

Bob Hoover died today at 94. I was aware of his exploits as a test pilot and airshow pilot. I did not know, until today, that he broke out of a POW prison camp in WWII and stole a German plane to fly to the Netherlands and freedom. A true patriot and badass of the first order.

We have had and do have some amazing people in this world.
It is just a shame that we don't hear about the good people that often or only when they pass and all we get to see and hear are the not so good.

Different morals and scruples these days I guess?
People like the one above just did what they could and had an attitude that we do really see a lot these day.
It really does bring a tear to my when I hear we lost another good one.
