Default RIP John Bonanno

John Bonanno lost his battle with cancer this past Friday. If you've flown at NALF Fentress in the past years you probably knew John, or at least heard him. Once a Fighter Pilot, always a Fighter Pilot, he was always pushing the envelope and doing it better, faster, or just "one more rotation before I recover". John was a great guy, always ready with a word of "encouragment" for his fellow pilots, but always ready to jump in and help.

It's hard to see him go. He will be missed.


Pic below shows John doing a deadstick landing on his TGA Mig-29. Never giving up.

It is hard to believe what some one has done for the hobby , till they are gone, RIP Yes I have never met the man but he is one of a group that never forgets.
