Chuck Yeager, 97, died last night

Aviator, test pilot, first to break the sound barrier,

RIP, from a different age where technology was all about pushing new boundaries in aviation and rocketry. Hopefully with the likes of SpaceX we're now returning to those times!

I remember reading a column by Jeremy Clarkson many years ago where he was making the argument about never meeting your heroes citing Chuck Yeager as the most unpleasant man he'd ever met.
