    Blue Skies Russ Snadden

    I read on the Black6 FB page that Russ Snadden passed away yesterday.
    I never met him but will be forever grateful to him and his team for their magnificent restoration of Black6.
    Without him many of us here wouldn't have waited a lot longer to see a real Bf109 fly.
    RIP

    Sad News. Russ was a Russavia pilot at one time. I remember talking to him about the 109 and flying the Varsity. RIP
