  • Pilot Jim Leroy dead after crash.

    Wow, 3 crashes in 2 days. I was heading up there tomorrow.

    Not good news.
    I'm wondering what the mood will be like at the show tomorrow.

    Oh no, I can't believe it. He was a star at our local air show and was easily my favourite stunt pilot ever since I saw him for the first time as a little kid.

    You're the best Jim, you will truly be missed.

      Damn, I saw him at Moffet Field a few years ago, the 3rd pilot from that show who has been killed. RIP.

      He flew the "Bulldog" Pitts by the way.

              I think he was at the Fort Worth Air Show last year?
