Sherman Smoot, Czech Mate Lost in Test Flight Crash


Recommended Posts

This really, really sux!  Sherman Smoot was one of the best air race pilots in the world and he was pretty much the only pilot for Czech Mate. 
Rest In Peace, Mr. Smoot! Now you fly without man made wings.

Sherman Smoot and Czech Mate were hands on favorites to win at Reno two weeks from now.  Just getting the Yak competitive was a many year project which was finally about to pay off. Easily the world’s fastest propeller driven Yak.
