With a sad heart, I must inform you of the passing of a great American Hero, USAF General Chuck Boyd. He passed away last evening around 7:00 PM peacefully. As many know, he was a Viet Nam War Pow, shot down over North Viet Nam while flying his trusty F-105. He was a fixture around the airport at Warrenton, VA, flying his legendary T-34 with Air Force livery and Grey Eagle Logo. He owned and flew several different aircraft here to include an A-36 Bonanza, A Great Lakes, and a Legend Cub that incorporated the now widely sought out “Boyd Step” to help with entering and exiting the cockpit. General Boyd was a true friend to the airport, a mentor to many, and my friend. He served his country well. Where do we get such Men?
Sparky (Dave Darrah)
Airport Director, KHWY
