Default RIP Eddie Andreini Died today at Travis AFB

I was there today and was a good performance. Awesome plane and pilot. Not sure if wind or what cause it but gone now. Sad on many ways as may lead to no more civilian plane performances on AFBs.

Very sad indeed. Seen Eddie at a few different airshows in his signature Stearman with that one and only sound from the engine. Great pilot
Was this at the end of his routine after several passes?
