   Just watched the news , a crash near St.Louis Regional airport of an f-18
killed the pilot . He was practicing for an air show in Europe sometime in
the near future , just did a loop and then crashed near Betholto (
spelling?? ) do not know the reason yet no word from the faa , the pilot was
Jeff Crutchfield.... He had over 6200 hours in 110 different planes ,
suppose to of had around 2000 in the f-18 , he was a test pilot for 
McDonnell Douglas and flew airshows . Got to go to work will see what is on
at 5:00 pm .  Randy
