Heard about this a few minutes ago. Super sad. I’m sure he lived a long, happy, and fulfilling life, though. May he rest in peace.

Sad days, but he will be forever soaring now!

RIP to someone who achieved a huge milestone in aviation history.

Rest In Peace, Mr. Yeager. I know you are smiling down on us, and I know that you will be ever watching to find the future of aviation :)

That is really sad rip

One of the many inspirations for me and my fighter pilot dreams. Rest in Air Power, sir!

May he rest in peace knowing he achieved one of the greatest aviation feats.

Rest easy Chuck.

He has achieved something really important for aviation.
May he Rest In Peace.

A WWII pilot, the first to break the sound barrier, and so much more. Chuck was truly an inspiration for many people in the aviation world (me included). He was one of the most important and greatest pilots in the world.

My prayers go out to his family and friends


Rest easy, Chuck.
