Quote of the interview: "Jack Reeder was the best test pilot I ever knew... and Chuck Yeager was the worst!"

Part 2 of this interview was broadcast last night and will be on line next Wednesday.

Sad quote of the segment (Jim talking about Neil's passing): "He really didn't need to go, there were some issues post surgery that could have been handled better."

This relates to the pacemaker that was placed on Neil's heart, the bypass went well and Neil was up and around but 'something' went wrong and the world lost a great man too soon.

I've now listened to both of these and they are FANTASTIC. Lot's of interesting background information on Neil's life and the process of working with him on the book. Some real tidbits of gossip! Download these and put them on your MP3 player for your walk - highly recommended.

Much obliged! Thank you sir.
