The man was a true hero to us kids growing up way back when and to think he broke the sound barrier eleven years before I was even born. :salute: R.I.P

Q Andrew- Is 'Vale' a nickname or tribute of some sort because I thought his first name was Charles?

Brett,

"Vale" is obviously not in common use in the USA as it is in Australia/elsewhere. It is Latin for farewell and is often used in an orbituary.

Cheers
Andrew
