Just learned of the fatal crash of OV-1 Mohawk 15958 on Friday, November 1.  I saw this aircraft fly a couple of years ago at the Homestead ARB show.  A beautiful and very scarce aircraft.  The owner was flying the aircraft when it crashed near the Stuart airport in preparation for an air show this weekend.  A tragic loss.

Thank you for posting this.  I wanted to do it myself but have been struggling the past few days thinking about it.  I knew Dr Joe and have helped him out at a show in the past.  Was actually supposed to go flying with him in 958 sometime.  Cant believe this happened, he was a great guy dedicated to showcasing the OV-1 to the public and keeping its history alive.  This aircraft was also a memorial to the MIA from the Vietnam conflict.  All the names of those MIA in Vietnam were stenciled all over the aircraft.  Lost a great person, a great aircraft and a special memorial.  Still cant believe this happened.
