Does anyone else remember this guy? He was vice-commander of the old Air Force Systems Command. In 1984, he was killed in a crash at the Nevada Test Site (aka "Area 51"). Some say he was killed in an F-117 prototype. Some say he was killed in a MiG-23. Either way (and I'm thinking the former, rather than the latter) after his death, someone said no more generals will perform flight tests...er...well, unless your name is Chuck Yeager. To this day, General Bond's death has been a very big mystery, and is highly debated in aviations circles. Anyone else remember this incident? Your thoughts please.
