RIP Maj. Brian Shul

Oh man. I really enjoyed his YouTube videos; talk about a man who took life by the balls and never let go.

Brian Shul (8 February 1948 – 20 May 2023) was a Vietnam War-era attack pilot and a major in the United States Air Force (USAF). He flew 212 combat missions and was shot down near the end of the war. He was so badly burned that he was given next to no chance to live. Surviving, he returned to full flight status, flying the SR-71 Blackbird. Major Shul completed a 20-year career in the Air Force. He wrote four books on aviation and ran a photo studio in Marysville, California, until his death in Reno, Nevada

I have his book Sled Driver (on PDF if anyone wants a copy). I think I read all of his other books, too. Sad to hear.
