Remember seeing The Right Stuff film when it came out in the early '80s.  Piqued my interest as a young teen in the history of aviation.  

Saw a 2000 something interview with Yeager talking about the sound barrier record, said it was just one of like 10 different test flight projects he was working on at the time.  Sounded like another day at the office for an extraordinary gentleman.

Somewhere I have a picture of me with him when I was a kid. I think it’s even signed. I met him at a fundraiser for Duncan Hunter Sr. Got to meet a couple of cool guys through those. I’ll have to see if I can find it. Might still be with my dad. God Speed buddy...we know you’ve been close before.
