Guys, (For those that live in Florida or used to live in Florida!)

For those who remember Neal Harris (former GravesRC Employee).

Neal Harris, 61, of Kissimmee was the pilot killed when his plane clipped power lines and plunged into the Suwannee River Saturday, the Lafayette County Sheriff's Office says.

It is with great sadness that confirmation has been acquired by news media that 61 year old Neal Harris (former GRAVES RC Employee) was the one who lost his life in a Plane Crash on Saturday (January 14th, 2017) at approximately 5:00pm on the Suwannee River in his Amphibian (Aeromarine Buccaneer).

I've enjoyed Neil's knowledge & help in years past while he was working at Graves. I also enjoyed flying models with him at a couple of out-door and indoor flying events.

Being a fact of life, our day too will come. My best hope is that I will go as Neal did, enjoying what I am passionate about til the very end.



Prayers and may he rest in peace.:o
