Swede Ralston Can't Post

 Even though he was not a skydiver, he has made many of us take to the sky in a different way. He taught me how to fly.
An avid airshow performer. He flew through the Tillamook Blimp hanger in a AT-6 Texan.
He died on 14 Nov. of Natural causes, he was a few weeks shy of his 91st birthday.

Cool Heather, thanks for this post.
My dad firebombed out of Newcastle, Wyoming back in the early 1960's with a Grumman TBM that Mr. Ralston had modified. I have not heard that name in years. What a flash from the past! Thanks again!
