Baby pilot went down again. 16’s are so trash. David Schmitz was his name

Michael Minasian wrote on Facebook “I’ve known David Schmitz basically since we were born. So many sleepovers, nights playing together, watching 49ers and Packers football together growing up. As happens in life we have lost touch over the years, but I watched in awe from afar as he chased after his dream of being a fighter pilot year after year. It was incredible to see him reach that goal and so so so unfair to have him taken from us so early.
Love and prayers for a true hero this Independence Day to his family in California and beyond.”
Circumstances surrounding his death is yet to be revealed. We will update you as soon as we have more information about his death.
