I just heard the devastating news that Jon Patch, author of many wonderful Flight Simulator sceneries among which Vancouver Plus, passed away on the 22nd.
Jon was a wonderfully thoughtful person and an amazing talent in scenery design, with an incredible eye for detail and a tenacity to portray that detail into our flight simulator. As often in our ‘on-line’ life we will never know much about others in the hobby, just what we read and see on our computer screens.
But Nina and I had the pleasure of meeting Jon in Victoria on Vancouver Island back in 2007. An epic journey for us, with a chance to meet many of the FSAddon authors from the west coast !
Jon really was one of the nicest people and always extremely helpful and knowledgeable in supporting his products on the forums.
I miss him already.
Jon, Rest in Peace.
