    Sure was Kane. Very accomplished pilot, and impressive to watch. His wife did the commentary during the display.

    Indeed, it's a sad loss for the aerobatics community, and for airshow goers in Australia.

    Yeah, it is indeed sad. I suppose on a positive note, he died doing something he loved.

    A great tribute Dave:D As the saying goes, there are old pilots and there are bold pilots. Aerobatic pilots are definitely the bold variety.
