This is sad news. I'm grateful to have seen him fly a few times at airshows as well, especially his F-86 Sabre demonstrations which were quite the sight to see. I could be wrong but I thought that some years ago he was working towards bringing an F-5 Tiger II into the airshow demonstration circuit. A sincere thank you for his service and prayers for his loved ones.

My word! RIP Snort. frown


I only heard the tragic news an hour ago when I was checking Juan's channel about the Oshkosh festival. Juan posted a short video on Monday about the crash.

True! We may never know the exact cause. The NTSB investigations are extremely thorough so most likely they should be able to narrow it down to pilot error or mechanical issues. Of course, the NTSB investigations take a lot of time and the final report will probably not be available for a year or so.

I was thinking about Dale Snodgrass this evening. I watched some of Blancolirio's videos and then this evening I saw the airport footage which is hard to watch. I found a couple of pictures from one of my visits to the Tico Airshow. These are from 2010. I'm pretty sure he's piloting the F-86 but I believe he also flew the T-33 as well. I I've also seen him fly the Mig-17 as well. I really enjoyed his flight demonstrations. They were always impressive and a lot of fun to watch. I'm wondering if I saw him too in an F-14 Tomcat demonstration. Years ago they had an airshow at Patrick AFB(Mid 2000s I believe) and from our vantage point from a couple of miles away we watched a Tomcat demo.

Not for more sensitive viewers/readers due to the sensitive subject matter, but there is nothing graphic in the video, images, or words.
Update on the crash over on Juan's channel. Keep in mind that Juan, I believe was a former military pilot and current airline pilot (I believe this summer he may also be found at times in N. CA at one of the wildfire air attack bases), is providing educated speculation about the tragic event based on current known information.
