    Gus "the hatch just blew" Grissom was the baddest-of-the-bad mofo to ever grace the world of aviation.

    Young was no slouch, either.....

    ...But Gus was a badass.

    Next Friday would have been his 89th birthday, were it not for that very tragic, horrible day in '67

    I remember that day..... I was 9 or 10 years old. It was on the evening news (Walter Cronkite I'm sure). At our family dinner my dad talked about what heroes he, White and Chaffee were.
