A very full and interesting life indeed! On top of that, a man lucky to live to his age!

WOW!

There's at least one old, bold, pilot.

At one time, Brown was part of the British supersonic research. I believe it was with DeHaviland. Without notice or discussion, all the research was boxed up and sent to Bell Aircraft in California, and the British stopped working.
I don't understand why.
