My great friend Russ Schleeh died Sunday, May 6 2012, at home in Mission Viejo California with his wife Mary, daughter Brandy, son-in-law Ken and step-daughter Kay by his side. Russ was a great WWII bomber pilot, and Chief of Bomber Test. See his Air Force bio here, and here’s a good bio written for the Hydroplane & Raceboat Museum.
