Scott Crossfield

Scott Crossfield died the other day in a plane crash. He would be best known to those who read "The Right Stuff". He was a test pilot who flew 30 missions in the X-15 rocket plane. He was in his 80's and was the pilot and sole occupant of the light plane he was flying. In a way, it's poetic that he died at the controls.
