 I regret to inform you that Larry Weeks, longtime president of Aerobatics
Canada, died Saturday afternoon in an airplane accident at the Brampton
Flying Club.

This information came this morning from Sport Aerobatics Canadian
Correspondent, Francois Bougie. I have since clipped the following item
from CBC Radio News:

"A man died yesterday when his single-engine plane crashed during takeoff
from an airstrip west of Toronto. Police said the plane was a home-made
aircraft assembled from a kit. They say, Larry Weeks' single-engine
plane went down on its maiden flight at the Brampton Flying Club.
Investigators from Transport Canada believe engine failure may have
caused the accident."

I have since learned that the airplane was an RV-6.
