John William Kiker

Reader comment: "I just wanted to let you know of the passing of a former NASA employee. I had the pleasure to meet him 2 times in his last year, and think he is worthy of some recognition. His name is John William Kiker, and he is the man who came up with and proved the idea of using a 747 to carry the Space Shuttle back to Florida when it landed in California or New Mexico. Here are some links to information about him and his death."
