Manila Moments from
... For those of you not familiar with the name, or his history, I'll digress for a moment. Leo was a mechanic on B-52s in the early 1960s, based at Travis AFB in northern California. He heard that an air race was going to be held nearby, so he took some military leave and went up to Reno to watch the first running of the Reno Air Races (held in 1964). He got so enthused about flying that he decided to get his license. He got out of the military and went home to New England and started flying. In 1966 he was hired by American Airlines and continued working with them until his untimely death in 1997. He flew aerobatic competitions in a highly modified Steven's Acro that he bought in 1970 and modified to such an extent that he renamed a "Laser 200″. Leo Loudenslager went on to win the U.S. National Championship Aerobatic title a record seven times and, in 1980, also won the World Aerobatic Championship. ...

Shuttle-Riding Bat Dies The Most Glorious Death Imaginable [Space Eulogies]
from Gizmodo by John Herrman
Partial extract:
Bereft of his ability to fly and with nowhere to go, a courageous bat climbed aboard our Discovery with stars in his weak little eyes. The launch commenced, and Spacebat trembled as his frail mammalian body was gently pushed skyward. For the last time, he felt the primal joy of flight; for the first, the indescribable feeling of ascending toward his dream—a place far away from piercing screeches and crowded caves, stretching forever into fathomless blackness. Whether he was consumed in the exhaust flames or frozen solid in the stratosphere is of no concern to us. We know that Spacebat died, but his dream will live on in all of us.
