Scott Crossfield

The first man to fly at twice the speed of sound died this week. Scott Crossfield was killed in a plane crash.

He was piloting the plane.

He was 84 years old. Eighty-four and still flying planes. Gotta respect that.

Senator Wilder (Speaker of the Senate) is 80+ and still flys his small plane as well.

Personally I don't particularly respect it at all--I just hope he (and other octogenarian pilots) are not in the same air space as my husband when he's flying.
