While it's very sad to know about someone so young die (50 something,
right?), let's see it from another perspective. For someone so passionate
about WW1 aircraft, and flying, would be this way to go West a very sad
ending? He loved the skies, he had the means to invest and fly his own
airplanes with his vast knowledge of the joys -and let's say it- the risks
inherent to operate early flying machines. Would Javier have preferred to
die of old age, or from some disease, as mere mortals do?
Let's rejoice for all the good he did in his lifetime, let's grieve for the
fact that he's not in this world anymore, and let's raise a glass of
chilled champagne (1905 vintage if possible) and exclaim "We've tolerated
you here because we've had to!"
