Gone to Meet His Co-Pilot

Brigadier General Robert L. Scott, Jr., world renowned World War II "ace" pilot and author of the 1943 book "God Is My Co-Pilot," has gone to see his co-pilot. The spirited adventurer who flew fighter missions with the "Flying Tigers" in China, passed away this morning at the age of 97.

Full story here.

Double Damn. It's bad enough losing beloved TV personalities, but Scott shared his heroic adventures with us via his book, an inspiring work. Another member of the Greatest Generation gone.
