I just got wind that one of TBM’s long time supporters, Dave Johnson of Thunderbird Archery, was killed in an ultralight plane crash. I do not have any additional info at this time, but will keep you all posted … unless you beat me to it.
I used to hot-rod in Marine choppers, which was plenty insane, but you couldn’t get me into an ultralight death-trap. Along from Dave and countless others, these dangerous toys have taken John Denver and one of the Costeau boys. Well, death is always tragic, but none so tragic in my mind as an elderly decaying body and mind that have never truly lived, which is a sorry majority today I fear. At least Dave beat that.
