The Franklins put on some absolutely AMAZING airshows!  Jimmy was involved in the business for 38 years!  Bobby Younkin was also an incredibly skilled pilot; both will be dearly missed.  
Actually, Kyle is still working on the air show circuit; he is up at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh helping out Kent and Warren Pietsch with their show, specifically landing a 1942 Interstate Cadet on the top of an RV!!  Kyle acts as pseudo-arresting gear.  Pictures from Oshkosh here:,1430.60.html  Also, a photo thread dedicated to Jimmy Franklin and Bobby Younkin:,3285.0.html
Kyle is in fact one of the ground coordinators for the X Team (for whom his father and Bobby were flying), so he was right there on the ground that fateful day at Moose Jaw.  My deepest condolences are extended to the families and friends.  Messages can be sent to the families at following a link at the bottom of the page.
Sorry for getting us off topic!!  Just an area I'm familiar with . . .

with thier planes, and even some using the DeLorean.
The stuff looked very dangerous.
I can't imagine what's going on with him right now, that's pretty 
I hope he makes it through it OK, they have our support.
