We are saddened to relate that Herb
Berkman was tragically killed in an aircraft crash of his RV 6A home
built airplane. He was on final approach to runway 34 at Greeley
Colorado on the morning of June 25, 2007 when the aircraft hit some power
lines. The news reports indicated that there might have been some
unusual engine noises before the impact. The aircraft nosed over and hit the
ground with an ensuing fire. Both occupants perished in the crash.
Terry Langen from Tucson
was Herb's passenger. They both had spent the
weekend at the Rocky Mountain Fly-In held at the Front Range airport south
of Denver International Airport. They both have been doing the
announcing duties together for a few years at the fly-in there.
Herb will be missed by all of us in the
Tucson Corvair Association. We wish his family the best in this most
