NASA has announced that one of its pioneers in the business of getting the United States into space and then contributing to maintaining the U.S. presence in space and on the Moon has died. Obviously, the title indicates that would be John Young.

I used what in my view is an appropriate rank, even if he was retired.

Oh yes, and here was a real professional in every sense of the word's meaning, but even he could break the rules on rare occasions. And I'll make that plural, because I'll bet that Gus Sandwich wasn't the only time he broke the rules. Those who are risking their lives for a great cause are prone to loosen their brain cells up a bit by playing tricks and sometimes playing tricks means a rule, or two, will be broken.

Let me start this off with the BBC link, even though he didn't fly for the RAF.

Wait! He flew for all of us on Planet Earth, didn't he?
