Just returned fron Colorado Cog to get a phone call this morning from the wife of a very close friend informing me that her husband had been killed on Sat when his glider crashed in the mountains near Hemet. Cause of death yet to be determined. We played snooker every Sun for 4hrs for the last 9 years when he wasn't flying and I wasn't rallying. They were his two passions, flying and snooker. He will be sorely missed.
