Al Worden was one of the least remembered pioneering-time astronauts, having flown in space only once as Command Module Pilot of Apollo 15 in 1971 together with David Scott and Jim Irvin.

Blue skies forever Al Worden.

RIP Eric Denis, only 52 years old, corona victim.

“...Eric Denis was also part of the European Hockey Federation (EHF) Umpire Development Program and the ARBH International unit. But it’s undoubtedly in the clouds that Eric Denis' true career unfolded. He was a high-flying pilot, captain on the Royal Falcon and on the Belgian Army Airbus, pilot of the famous Seaking helicopter and commander of the Melsbroek military base. He was an instructor and pilot, both in the army and in the civilian sector, with TUI, Netjets, and until recently with Norwegian Airlines, where he was ‘base captain’ of their operation in Barcelona"...

I saw many messages of sympathy in the 15th Wing Facebook Group, well appreciated it seems. He'll be missed.
