    Thanks for showing that David, brought back memories of the tragic event at the time, but wasn't surprising to many as he kept pushing the envelope farther and farther and the law of averages caught up with him. I wonder how long it took them to find his remains and the craft? Never saw that video before. PJ

    My recollection is that for many years the decision was made not to look and to honour him that way
