Greg Connell Obituary
Pilot Greg Connell, of South Carolina, crashed and died Saturday during an airshow at DeKalb-Peachtree Airport. The event, which drew vintage aircraft as well as specially designed stunt planes, was called the Good Neighbor Day Air Show.

Connell's custom-built biplane, known as Wolfpitts, hit the ground after failing to pull out of a dive maneuver.

Connell, who owned Greg Connell Airshows, based in Trenton, S.C., started flight training in 1989, following in his father's footsteps by training with local legend Al Patton.

A memorial service for Connell will be held Wednesday, May 17, 2016 at 7 p.m. at The Richmond on Greene in Augusta, Ga., his family said in the post. Friends can visit family from 5 to 7 p.m. before the service. The address for the event is 725 Greene St, Augusta, GA 30901.
