WBIR: "Sam Best, Sr. did not have a pilot's license. They are not required for the ultralight aircraft he was flying."

The Constitutionally guaranteed God-given Natural right to travel by motor vehicle WITHOUT an internal passport license extorted at gunpoint by police-state death squads. What a concenpt.

Sam was a friend and mentor when I was around 13 years old and helped me be the person I am..
I knew Al until he was around 3 years old
I saw Sam again at my friends moms funeral and he was just as great a person as he was then...
Taught me how to do a flip on a tranpoline
Anyway ...SORRY you lost your Dad AL
I will miss him
I fly ultralights as well.

I bet he didn't file a flight plan. That is so dangerous.
