COMMENTS: Born to Fly

NASA astronaut Wally Schirra died, aged 84, one of the original seven Mercury program spacemen immortalized as having The Right Stuff. He later went into space with Gemini and Apollo too. In his obituary, NBC's Brian Williams pointed out that Schirra, a USNavy pilot, was born into a flying family. His father had been a fighter pilot in World War I and later took to the barnstorming circuit with Schirra's mother. Williams showed fantastic footage of her midair stunt work as a wingwalker. NBC's veteran space correspondent Jay Barbree paid tribute to Schirra as one of the nation's "best sons…one of the nicest people that ever lived, one of the nicest astronauts."
