I can understand if you have issues, but have some respect for the dead and Jim's children and grandchildren.

I can not speak for Jim's actions once we parted company in 1968 but I can attest to the fact that Jim Cheatham was a distinghuised combat helicopter pilot in Vietnam and served his country with honor and valor. I was the class leader of Jim's US Army Flight Class 65-9 and have the highest respect for Jim's flying ability, and professionalism in the performance of his duty. Your use of profanity does nothing to address your anger but attacks his family and friends. I hope that you find peace of mind in the future.

Jim's family knows he was one the best pilots out there. He was a huge part of the Salinas AirShow and gave much to the community.

He opened doors for many people and had the best Helicopter Air Show in the world.

Darkstar's name fits his comments. There are always two sides to each story.

Joeseph- I wish you could have seen his program- Showcopters- it was simply amazing.

If anyone sees this, please go to :

THe blog ended with this creep's ( Darkstar) comments- we can't let that happen!
