    You know, I have a bone to pick with you...how could you use a pun at such a sad moment? Fossett was someone to be genuinely admired. He took many risks but had gusto and a true sense of adventure.

    Yeah, the puns are a bit much. It's too bad- this was a guy who dared to follow his dreams, and accomplished some great things.

    So was this chap the US version of Richard Branson? Never heard of him myself but he's been popping up all over my RSS inbox.

    Very much in common. Fossett did a lot to advance the boundaries of aviation and especially the Experimental Aircraft Association in the United States.

    The Experimental Aircraft Association is more commonly known as the EAA and is the association for people who build their own aircraft whether it be an ultralight or a Lancair.

    A big event that EAA puts on is Air Venture. If you are interested in aerospace this is quite an event and is worth taking a holiday across the pond.

    So long Steve.
