Former Spanish Team member Alejandro "Alex" MacLean was killed on Tuesday, the 17th of August, in an aerobatic practice accident in Casarrubios del Monte, in the province of Toledo (central Spain). He was flying his Edge 540 in preparation for an upcoming airshow. Alex had a distinguished career in aerobatic competition before shifting his talents and efforts to the Red Bull Air Race a few years ago, where he was deeply respected and liked. He was 41 years old and leaves behind a wife and two sons, age 7 and 12. Our condolences to his family and many friends and colleagues in the aerobatic community.
