Paul Tibbets, RIP

A participant in one of the watershed events in human history died yesterday. Gen. Paul Tibbets (USAF, ret.) died at 92 at his home in Columbus, Ohio. In Googling his name, I found that he had an official website.

Unless I am mistaken, this means that the last surviving member of the crew that carried out the mission is Theodore "Dutch" Van Kirk, a native of Northumberland, Pennsylvania. I, too, was raised in Northumberland.
