Daring Ellis Park pilot passes away

Word reached ESPNscrum HQ this week that Laurie Kay, the South African pilot best known for flying a Boeing 747 passenger jet low over a Johannesburg stadium before the final of the 1995 Rugby World Cup, has died at the age of 67. Associated Press reports that, "the stencilled underside of the plane read "Good Luck Bokke" in a message of support for South Africa's national team, the Springboks" who went on to claim a memorable victory over the All Blacks. Check out his amazing flying skills in the clip below:

That was arguably the best party period I have ever had the pleasure of attending, it seemed to last for months.

Good times.
