August 30, 2016 will forever be a sad day in Aviation. It will be remembered as the day legendary engineer Joe Sutter passed away.
His vision, daring, wisdom, and wit, opened up a new era of aviation, forever changing the face of commercial air travel. He will certainly be missed.
God Speed, Joe. We don't make them like you anymore.
The Seattle Times ran a great article on Mr. Sutter's life.
