I don't think he was a member of this forum, but he was a long time experimental/sport pilot.
On July 2, at 10:30. Ed, who was a flying buddy of mine took of from Calhoun, GA, and crashed his Jabiru-Powered Sonex, about a mile from the runway.
Ed was 84, and still kept his medical certificate and was an avid North Carolina style "Shag-Dancer." He had flown for 60+ yrs. He flew for a while as Epps Aviation/Atlants corporate pilot.
We will miss him diving into the Cartersville airport in his Fergy II.
