Bummer. A great loss, not just for his family, but for generations of aviation and history enthusiasts. So many of his books provided knowledge and enjoyment that he seemed to be in the role of my own uncle. -- And I'll miss him as though he really were.

Wonderful writer and a former B-47 pilot. His writing style put me in more than one exotic cockpit from the comfort of my reading chair. He will be missed, yet will live on through his writing.
