Damn.... I am very sorry to hear that. I may not know him, or didn't see him in action very often, but, I hope he can continue playing WOWP in the Afterlife. Who knows what lies in Afterlife, but, I am sure he will continue soaring to the air.
My mom told me that my grandfather were the flight engineer for C-47, from India to China during WWII, known as The Hump Express. I hope the Capt will meet my grandfather in the Afterlife.
Rest in Peace, Capt.
