    Latest news report mentioned a fly past and his daughters 18th birthday party at home.

    Sounds like an accident when trying some sort of tribute.

    May be rip. Must have been tough for his family to see the crash, if they did of course.

    Would that be the grass runway you often see running alongside the railway line about 5-10mins after departing kilkenny on the dub bound train?
