Default Lost a good friend today

Kent Keller a long time friend, lost his battle with cancer today, he was 64. Some may remember him as the pilot that landed a Continental Airliner in Orlando several years ago with the landing gear on one side up. All 150 plus on board were saved by his heroic actions. He was a long time Can Am racer that raced the Little Caesars Pizza Camaro in the 70's. I will always remember him telling me what was the first thing I did when I got in the race boat. I told him I strapped in and he said NO, you are strapping the boat to your a$$ and through the seat of the pants you can tell what the boat is doing. I never forgot that. You will be missed my friend. RIP Roger Ausley
