Re: Sad News: Luger Dies in Winter Olympics
I can remember meeting Chuck Yeager about five years ago, when Yeager was 80 years old. He told the group of us a story about how he had recently made a run in either a bobsled or luge (I forget which), adding that the next day during a competition he saw someone beheaded in a crash. I never checked out Yeager's story, but what made an impression on me was how "matter-of-fact" he seemed to be about the event. It may take that kind of personality to make a successful fighter pilot and test pilot.
