Sad

I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Fitch ~16 years or so ago at a Maserati club event at some small classic car dealer down the road from Lime Rock Park. He appeared there in his Fitch Phoenix. He was very pleasant, gracious and amazingly spry for his age. He gave a very interesting talk that touched on cars, racing and flying but mostly on the technical aspects of his various contributions to motor vehicle and driver safety.

I had gone with a friend and there were only 20 or so folks in the audience and we wound up talking to him for a bit and told us the story of his shootdown of an Me262 and how he was later shot down.

There are not many like him left.
