Beat the drum slowly

Neptunus Lex

O Spirit Whom the Father sent
To spread abroad the firmament,
O Wind of Heaven, by Thy might
Save all who dare the eagle's flight,
And keep them by Thy watchful care
From every peril in the air!

  1. Hell of a way to start my day, I really enjoyed his posts and he struck me as a great guy.

    The picture they released makes it look like he bellied in just short of the runway (http://www.lahontanvalleynews.com/article/20120306/NEWS/120309948), might have made it, if that building hadn't been there. It doesn't look like he was going very fast when he hit the structure.

    Condolences to his family.

    I met Lex at a milblogger conference. This one really hurts, and I can't get my head wrapped around it. Fair winds and following seas, Cap'n. My deepest sympathies to your family.
