    Legendary U.S. Air Force Pilot Chuck Yeager Dies At 97

    December 7, 2020

    Legendary U.S. Air Force pilot Chuck Yeager passed away on Monday evening at the age of 97, according to a statement posted to his official Twitter account by his wife.

    “It is w/ profound sorrow, I must tell you that my life love General Chuck Yeager passed just before 9pm ET,” Victoria Yeager wrote on Twitter. “An incredible life well lived, America’s greatest Pilot, & a legacy of strength, adventure, & patriotism will be remembered forever.”

    Yeager, awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1985, became the first person to ever break the sound barrier when he flew the Bell X-1 rocket 700 mph in October 1947.
