Had a call about this yesterday, he was a legend. I met him several times and although he was a tough nut to crack he had a very sensitive side and was a true gentleman. Maybe they will dedicate the new Hawk to him?

Sad news, I had the privilege of meeting him a few years ago. A true titan of the industry.
