Default Sad news for the jet forum

I received information this morning that fellow moderator and jet buddy John Dunker has passed away.

I will post more information when I receive it.

This is such a shock. John has been around forever as a mod. He was a moderator way back when I was one. I thought he was always fair and he was certainly always a good guy. He will be missed.
God bless John, in my thoughts and prayers.

Rest easy J Dunker.

We also lost jet flier Bill Hunt over the weekend. Cancer took him from us. He was a great guy and will be missed.

There are some people here on RCU that are simply considered a part of RCU, John was just that. He WAS The RCU Jet's Forum. He was more than just a Moderator for this forum. John simply did whatever it took to make this forum an asset the RC Jet Community. He took good care of this forum as well. I never knew how he did as much as he did for this forum all the while living on a sailboat bouncing around the Bahamas. He will be deeply missed here.

RIP John!

That is really sad to news hear.. Over the decade or so that I have been here, the RCU Jet Forum has been a fantastic source of both information and entertainment for me. Thank you Mr J.Dunker.

Please pass on my condolences to his family and friends.
