Thanks for posting that video Alicatt.

A very fine tribute to Airdrop. It's hard to realize that some of us have known each other for over 20 years. I have met face to face, only 2 of the guys I flew with from EAW and IL2 . It really brings home the humanity behind the the forum usernames and avatars.


Rest in peace sir.

Rest In Peace, Airdrop.
My belated condolences to the family and friends and all of those that have had contact with him here.
I have been checking this thread for news of a fellow flying fan; obviously not often enough.
It is good to know there is so much heart here. I salute you all.

Thanks for posting the video Alicatt. Been avoiding watching it since you posted it knowing it was going to be tough to watch.

I have to admit, I hesitated on watching the video because I knew it would make me emotional. It was very well done. I'm taking a little bit of comfort knowing that he did a lot of "living" with his time here. Too #%&*$# young.

Rest in Peace Don. <S!>

I think quite often about AirDrop both because of the kind of man he was and also because it makes me think about my own mortality. We've now lost several SimHQ members within the past few years. It's really sobering.

We are all aging, Panzer, and a lot of us have illnesses of various sorts. It's an unpleasant part of getting old, losing old friends. Tony Draper's death shook me up a lot.
