    Such a shame. Hope the pilot is recovering quickly.

    Looking to read the details of what happened.

    Unfortunately the story mentioned a “fatality”.

    The loss of a priceless piece of history is tragic enough, but the loss of the pilot as well is really terrible.

    Sad. I travel by the airport on weekends and it is very busy now exercising aircraft for the upcoming show.
