Tragedy struck the Thunder Over the Blue Ridge Air Show that was held on Saturday at the 167th Airlift Wing in Martinsburg, WV. The pilot of the T-28 Warbird, who was part of the Trojan Horsemen Flight Demonstration Team, died from the crash. An eerie silence fell over the crowd after the accident. People cried and hugged in an attempt to comfort each other. The sharp contrast between the shear joy of watching these awesome aircraft fly to the sudden sadness of witnessing the death of a pilot will not soon be forgotten by us. Life is too short; enjoy every day.
Over 300 cars showed up early, starting at 8:00 AM, for the recent Hendersonville Cars and Coffee cruise-in. World of Clothing in Hendersonville, NC hosted the event and cars were spread out all across their large parking lot.
