Thanks Robert,
He’s definitely still in the saddle. 

Also wanted to mention that after retiring with his lifelong colleagues, they met every third Friday of the month for lunch. Decades into their post-retirement ritual, one of the team (Larry Howard) presented his written recollections of working together. The others added theirs, and all that came from that initiative is now available as a book called Adventures in Aerospace Testing. 
How cool is that?! https://m.barnesandnoble.com/w/adventures-in-aerospace-testing-larry-howard/1120855531
