Chuck Yeager


Recommended Posts

Multiple news outlets are reporting that Brigadier General Chuck Yeager has passed one last barrier at the age of 97.

Yeager's three-war active-duty flying career spanned more than 30 years. As a test pilot, he became the first human to break the sound barrier and paved the way for the space program.


“You do what you can for as long as you can, and when you finally can't, you do the next best thing. You back up but you don't give up.” –Chuck Yeager
