A dark day.

To all my friends, and other regular visitors, following me through this website, these days are very sad. Last Sunday my brother Gerry died in a tragic accident after his aircraft crashed in Austria. Gerry was the one who learned me sailing and built his own boat back in the seventies. However, his passion was flying. He was my biggest fan and dreamed about building a fast composite aircraft, when he was retired. My other brother Ben designed his new to built house at the Atlantic Airpark, Chasnais, France, with a big hangar and workshop for his planes, to fulfill his dream, to enjoy his retirement together with his wife Joni. On January 2 we will bring him to his last resting-place, on the Zuiderhof cemetery here in Hilversum, near our beloved Dad, which grave is lying close to and in a continuation of runway 07/25 of Hilversum Airport, so that he could say Hi to our Dad when entering or leaving the field.
