Sad news indeed.
I loved First Light - easily one of my favorite books about BoB. Thinking of his flight in incredible bad weather, meeting this lonesome Ju-88 in the middle of nowhere always gives me goosebumps.

I just realized, also Tom Neil, another of my favorite writers, past away just a few days ago, on July 11th, also at the age of 97. May he also rest in peace.
