On December 31st a 47 year old pilot and his 22 year old daughter died in airplane crash in Bosnia close to town of Prijedor.
That’s a real punch in the gut as someone with daughters about that age. Tragic.
I didn’t know him personally because he was bit younger and he wasn’t a member of local aeroklub 30+ years ago when I used to visit their airfield. However, such a tragic accident of fellow aviator, especially involving family member, really feels as a hard punch in the gut.
