I didn't recognize the name at first, but I searched and saw he had credits on lots of airplanes i've enjoyed. TBM700, ALPHA BLEU CIEL Corsair, CL-215 all have been my default flight plane at one time or another.

Seem like they are falling like dominoes here lately. Makes me feel guilty that I don't really appreciate designers' work until they are eulogized.
