Just read one of my former teammates, Cleve Whitner, was killed in a small engine plane crash near Abilene.

I saw this in the paper. Didn't realize he was a Mustang. God rest his soul.

I remember Cleve. Good guy and good player. RIP. May God give peace to his friends and loved ones.

He owned a local business in Abilene for many years ... Lauren Engineering and Construction (the Lauren part named after his daughter I think). Three people died ... Cleve ... his CPA Gary Morrison (Abilene guy too), and a young pilot from Merkel TX ... They had just taken off from Abilene Regional heading to a hunt at Cleve's ranch ... 28 miles out over Coleman, TX. They say they had electrical issues, and maybe icing, the pilot was turning back. The last communication with the pilot was calm and he was stating his instruments were not functioning. That was it, they plummeted 11,000 feet in one minute. Always sad .... can't begin to imagine what final thoughts fill your mind at that time.

Please excuse my lack of techno jargon. The photo shows complete on tapatalk on my phone. One the Ponyfans site on my laptop and phone I get the partial photo. I have found if on my laptop, I can right click and select "view photo" and the entire picture will show. On my phone if I just press my finger on the photo for a few seconds, the entire photo will show. Hope this helps if anyone is having trouble seeing the full picture.
