 I am sad to announce that Ken Hadden was killed shortly after 1 pm this
afternoon when the Pitts he was flying crashed on takeoff from Packer
Aviation in Delaware County, Ohio.  Early reports say he was doing a roll
after takeoff and crashed about 1200 feet west of the departure end of the
runway.  The aircaft was completley consumed by fire.  More details as
they become available.  Eric
