Default Blue Angels tragedy

We lost a great American over the weekend in a fatal F-18 crash during an airshow demonstration by the Blue Angels. I had the opportunity to meet Lt Cmdr Davis at couple of airshows last year. Though we exchanged few words, and I certainly can't claim to have known him well, it's always sad when such an accident has familiar face associated.

Here's a toast...

...and a nickel on the grass.

It's such a shame to lose a good American like that.

Didn't know him at all, but he was from Pittsfield, twenty-five minutes away. He's a writeup on him from the local paper: http://www.berkshireeagle.com/fastsearch/ci_5729973

Always a tragedy to loose a fellow serviceman. I hoist one in his honor.
