Neptunus Lex, R.I.P.

The blogger known as Neptunus Lex, or Captain Carroll LeFon, USN-Ret., was killed yesterday in the crash of a Kfir F-21 fighter. He was working as a contract pilot. flying the Kfir to provide adversary training for Navy pilots at NAS Fallon, Nevada.

I usually didn't agree with his politics. Having said that, his writing on Navy and military matters was among the best. If you read his blog, you might recall that he was very happy to get the flying job with ATA and to help train younger pilots in the ways of air-to-air combat.

My condolences to his loved ones.

Fair winds and following seas, Captain.
