RIP Chuck Yeager

First to break the sound barrier. Ace in a day during World War II. Lent his name and likeness to not one but two flight sim games.

RIP to a guy who has The Right Stuff.


Growing up in West Virginia, he was one of those few idols all the textbooks gave as examples of famous and important West Virginians. I am sad that one of my childhood idols passed, even if he was forced on me.

RIP to a living legend.

If you've never read his biography it's a great page turner. From WW2 to all his experimental flight work. He was a workhorse of a guy. Humble and truly the ace of everyone. I could fly a cardboard box basically and still kick your ass in the air.
