de Havilland Venom Crash: RIP Marty Tibbetts

Recommended Posts

I saw this posted yesterday at SOH:


I found this news story, apparently it was a De Havilland Venom that crashed into a barn. The pilot is confirmed as having died upon impact and two farm workers were injured. Very sad news.


The pilot was Marty Tibbitts, president of the World Heritage Air Museum, which owns/operates quite an expansive collection of flying vintage jets. They were scheduled to be bringing the de-Havilland Venom and a Gloster Meteor to Oshkosh for this coming week, as part of the celebration of 100 years of the RAF. Absolutely tragic news.

This is a truly sad beginning to what is supposed to be a week of absolute delight. :s_bgt:
