    Sad to hear. I used to attend the Canadian International Airshow in Toronto religiously and Oskar was always there. Amazing glider pilot, doing loops and such things until he was very low - over a lake! RIP Oskar.

    I had the joy of knowing and working with Oskar for several year while working at Airshows in Penna. He was a Gentle-man and he adored his wife who was always with him. I share the sadness of his passing. He was a most remarkable glider pilot. He once told me how he flew his glider from Canada (I have forgotten the launch point) to Scranton Penna. He landed on a mountain top clearing only about 10 air miles from the Scranton-WilkesBarre Airport, it was within sight across the valley. He landed because of darkness. I salute you.

    Can't believe I missed this. So sorry to hear. Here are a few pics that I had found on the internet awhile back of his mates and his FW 190.
