A Friend Lost

I lost a friend, yesterday.  I was shocked to learn that air show pilot and friend Eddie Andreini was killed yesterday at an air show at Travis Air Force Base in Solano County, California

Eddie was an incredible pilot and performer.  He was small in stature but big at heart.  He performed in many different aircraft but he was probably most proud of his recently acquired P-51 Mustang.  During the past three or four year,s he's flown the gleaming P-51 at many air shows to thrill so many. 

Eddie was killed in an accident involving an inverted ribbon cut.  He was flying another of his aircraft, a beautiful Stearman, at the time.

My thoughts and prayers go to Eddie's family.  We have certainly lost a great man.
