Dan Buchanan was an inspiration to many.
This cool shot was taken at the NAS Oceana airshow. Following their performance, Bill Stein gave Dan a lift, by pulling him in his wheelchair as Bill taxied his plane.

To be able to do what he did for many years after suffering the type of injury he did alone shows his courage and dedication and speaks volumes about his character. He always seemed to be in good spirits with a smile on his face, and his night shows with pyro had all eyes glued to the sky.
Dan, you will be greatly missed by all not only as a talented airshow performer, but also as a strong minded and great spirited individual.
May you continue to soar into the blue skies above.
One quote I think is really empowering and representative of his spirit, when people asked him why he flew, he would answer: “I have to; I can’t walk.”
Rest In Peace, buddy!
