Flingwing206 - Memorial Thread

With some other info put together from other sources the Pilot was a regular on this board as well as a few other boards. That is not confirmed but there is a "handle" being listed by some and that person was a regular here. Keep both of these people and thier familys in your prayers please.
As a side note: There are several threads about this on JH and I for one am glad that the people who reside here show so much more class.

From one of his earlier posts here on VR:
<<<Thing is, I know a lot more car drivers, as a matter of fact, every adult I know drives a car. Stands to reason that it's likely I personally know people who have died in cars. Hell, I've watched people die in their cars right in front of me. I know a lot fewer helicopter pilots (by an order of hundreds, I'd guess), yet I know (as in personally met) two people who have died in helicopters. Which is safer? Well, at 1,000' AGL, I'll choose the helicopter any day!>>>
Sadly, we can't always fly up at 1000' AGL where it's safe. I never met John but he was always a good source of information here on VR and earned my respect.
His perpetual flight continues, now unconcerned with such earthly things as low rotor speed, torque limits, and settling with power...............
Blue Skies and Fair Breezes Swing!

"We all get old eventually, if we're lucky. The alternative isn't so good, but some of us do take that path."
Though I didn't know him it was a real blessing to have him here on the board helping everyone he could with the knowledge he had, especally all of use noobies. You will be missed Fling, both here on the board and to those who truly knew you. Gentle winds to you, where ever that may be.

My heart goes out to his family and friends. Any of us who have stayed in this industry long enough have gone through this. I hope the support for his family is there. To those who are close to John please take care of his family and friends and let them know what he contributed to this world.
