He packed more than most into 97 years and survived it all.

Guess he can pay Ridley back with a stick of Beeman’s now.

RIP, Sir!


In all my years I've never seen the like. It has to be more than a hundred sea miles and he brings us up on his tail. That's seamanship, Mr. Pullings. My God, that's seamanship!

A loss of a real legend and a great man.

The death of a true aviation great.


Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Someday your life will flash in front of your eyes. Make sure it is worth watching.

No doubt that Yeager was one of the greatest pilots of all time, but what impressed me most about him was his devotion to duty. His attitude toward flying the X-1, when others were asking for large amounts of money to do so, was that "The Air Force already pays me".

You are what you do when it counts

I will do terrible things to protect myself and all that I've worked for.
But even in your deepest, darkest nightmares you can't imagine the horrific things I'll do to protect my family.
