Rest In Peace, Chuck Yeager

Recommended Posts

I love actor Levon Helm's line as Riddley at the end of "All The Right Stuff". Yeager has just bailed out of an experimental jet and fallen thousands of feet with the metal ring on his helmet on fire (True event from his bio). Riddley and another officer are in a jeep racing out to the crash site. Their view of Yeager as he walks toward them is obscured. The other officer says to Riddley, Is that a man? Not able to clearly see Yeager.  Riddley says with a souther drawl  "Damn straight it is" . That line could be Yeagers eulogy.
