Horrible. I am not sure about how I feel about the fact that a 80 year old was piloting an aircraft in such a demanding event where these planes are pushed to the limit.

It is amazing the toll was not much higher Sad

It seems he was only 74, Rookie. My Dad was an ace. He was grounded at 48.

Yea, The age was misreported it seems. I can see if he still wants to fly, it's cool. Chuck Yeager up to not long ago flew planes at Airshows.

But not in a competitive, all out air racing event. I daresay that kind of flying is very much like flying combat. One false move...

Either way, Condolences to the families of all involved.
