A little late and pardon the redundancy if so, John Griffith's wife sent me a Christmas card saying he fell ill during a long Pacific Rim cruise, and came home to die on October 21st, 2011.

John of course, was a NACA/NASA test pilot who flew the X-1, X-4, and both D-558s.

Oh dear, how sad. I recall so vividly at the Gathering of Eagles in 2001 when he was describing to us at the dinner table how to roll an airplane without spilling a liquid beverage. Rest in Peace.

John was a gentleman... and a real friend to the collector. Sadly there were some who took advantage of his good and friendly nature. R.I.P.
