On Page 203, the author writes that the death caused by Navy pilot Pat Coyle was of a civilian maintenance man. To set the record straight, that "maintenance man," was my father, Paul Burch. Paul Burch was not a maintenance man. The hangar that was hit by Coyle's Navy jet was owned by Burch Aircraft Repair. Just prior to the plane crash, my father had sold his business, Burch Aircraft Repair, and had remained with the company, managing it and acting as head mechanic. Paul Burch left behind a wife and children, the youngest child was 9 years old.
