Jim "Fang" Maroney Headed West

It's a sad way to start a week. I learned this morning of the passing of air show pilot, former Marine Corps and Air National Guard Fighter pilot, Jim "Fang" Maroney. He was enroute to Georgia and to his first air show of the year when he failed to show up at a fuel stop. Search crews spotted the wreckage of Jim's Super Chipmunk this morning. More details to follow as I receive them. No words are sufficient.

Just picked up this news report from WATE-TV in Knoxville, Tennessee.
