The Aircraft Went Down In Open Field

It's been a horrific year for the airshow industry as much of the annual shows were cancelled due to the COVID crisis... but that pales in comparison to the worst news imaginable... the loss of a member of the overtly tight-knit airshow community. ANN regrets to note that it has confirmed the death of Team Rocket Aerobatics' Ken Fowler, along with passenger Hannalei Eder. Both were killed when Fowler's Harmon Rocket II (C-FZXS) went down 13 miles NW of Thorsby, AB Canada, Saturday afternoon.
