A few days ago Red Bull Air Race pilot Hannes Arch died in a helicopter crash in Carinthia region, Austria.
Hannes was involved in several sports creating Red Bull X-Alps an expedition that reflected his love for the montains. Hannes was also a base jumper and a paraglider.
After Hannes entrance in Red Bull Air Race things have changed he entered not to compete but to win the series and did it in a couple of seasons and all the others never ended at the lowe part of the table.
I had the opportuniy to know Hannes personally during the passing of the series in Porto in 2008 and the thing that I remember of those brief momments was the joy of living the dream of doing what makes you happy.
Blue Skies Hannes.
