  1. I'm sure the messengers from heaven couldn't catch up with him until he was 97 years old. I pray for the soul of this great pilot.

  2. Rest in peace Chuck fly high in the sky everyone will know you for a long time he will be in history books

  3. A great guy may he rest in peace

  4. I am glad Chuck Yeager, a hero to America and science, lived long enough to see Trump booted from office. He deserved to know that American voters were 52% not crazy. Too bad that so many others, including RBG, died not knowing for sure if America would wake from its drunken fascism fantasy.

  5. Chuck Yeager is the kind of down to earth ,pragmatic, results-driven, courageous hero that everyone should admire and look up to—I am sure he was sad to see how the world changed from " Positive" modelling of the past ( himself, NASA astronauts, JFK) to the " Negative" modelling (Trump and the black-hearted 1%,, other selfish forces) of today

  6. 🛩 🛩 🛩 🛩 🛩 🛩 🛩 💥 🛩 🛩 🛩 🛩 . . .

  7. Read his book on my way to job interview. The interviewer saw it and hired me instantly! I was a young woman and he was impressed that i found it interesting🤔😷 RIP… the right stuff

  8. One America News Network – Breitbart – Sky News Australia – News Max – Project Veritas – The Gateway Pundit – The Liberty Daily!!!…

  9. R. I. P.

  10. i met his chase pilot before he died as a kid at the reno air races he had plane old yeller his name was bob hoover

  11. Jaeger makes me hurl chunks of vomit all over the cockpit…🛫🛩🤢🤮✈🛬

  12. When I was young I read Chucks book and it captured my imagination. I can't remember the name of the book but the stories were stunning.
    -Chuck got shot down in enemy territory and made it back across the lines and would not leave his friend behind even though his friend had both his legs shot off. Chuck made a 'kinda backpack ' out of his friend after putting on bandages and carried him over the French Alps to safety.
    – Chuck dropped a freezer full of his favorite fish out of the back of a cargo plane over a mountain lake in California on the way back from a secret mission to escort a General friend to Mexico and told no one for years, just so he could fish for Golden Trout.
    – Chuck shot 50 antelope at once with a P51 Mustang to 'help out' with a BBQ at Panchos Place ( a local bar and grill frequented by Air Force Pilots).
    -Chuck separated a shoulder and had broke a few ribs the night before a test pilot mission and told no one over the fear that they would ground him and he would not get to break the record. He said he could not have pulled the eject lever if he wanted to because of the intense pain.
    His book would make a great Xmas gift for any man, young or old.

  13. Thank god he didn't turn into titan mid air

  14. There’s one less hero on Earth today 😭

  15. RIP Chunk! A true legend in aeronautical history

  16. We lost another good man… heaven is filling up fast.

  17. Huh?! I thought he’s BEEN dead!🤨

  18. I guess you can say he lived life in the…..danger zone

  19. Jesus Christ saves from sin.
    Romans 3: 23
    For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
    Hebrews 9: 27
    And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
    Isaiah 64: 6
    But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.
    Revelation 21: 8
    But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
    Romans 5: 8
    But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
    John 3: 16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
    John 14: 6
    Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
    Romans 10: 9-10.
    That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
    For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
    Jesus said John 5: 24
    Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
    1John 5: 10-13
    He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.
    And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
    He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
    These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
    Ephesians 2: 8-9
    For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
    Not of works, lest any man should boast.
    Romans 8: 1
    There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
    1 Corinthians 15: 3-4
    For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
    And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
    2 Corinthians 5: 21
    For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.


  20. Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples: “The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. So you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. They tie up heavy, cumbersome loads and put them on other people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them.
    Everything they do is done for people to see: They make their phylacteries wide and the tassels on their garments long; they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synagogues; they love to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces and to be called ‘Rabbi’ by others.
    “But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers. And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven. Nor are you to be called instructors, for you have one Instructor, the Messiah. The greatest among you will be your servant. For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted".
    Matthew 23 NIV

    You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything, in Heaven above or in the Earth beneath, or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents up to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.

    "If my people who are called by my name, humble themselves and pray, AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, I will hear from Heaven, will forgive their sins, and will heal their land."

    And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

    This, then, is how you should pray:

    Our Father in heaven,
    hallowed be your name,
    your kingdom come,
    your will be done,
    on earth as it is in heaven.
    Give us today our daily bread.
    And forgive us our debts,
    as we also have forgiven our debtors.
    And lead us not into temptation,
    but deliver us from the evil one.

    For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

    These are the teachings,
    The Righteousness of our Lord Jesus Christ our God.
    REPENT, and start doing what is right.
    If you abide my teachings, you are really my disciples; then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

    A time is coming and has now come, that the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and Truth. God is Spirit, so his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and Truth; they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.

    In the New Heaven and New Earth,
    only Righteousness dwells.
    May the Spirit of our Lord Jesus Christ our God be with you all.

  21. Rest in Peace Chuck Yeager!

  22. A hero! At one point, the fastest man alive. His bio is a really good read. God's speed Sir.

  23. If you think Trump is a tough guy, compare him to Yeager and ask yourself would Yeager hold pity party rallies and whine about being a victim? I kind of doubt it. RIP Mr. Yeager.

  24. Thanks YouTube for listening to the TV shows I watch and recommending this

  25. 17,182 evicted this week due to lack of a relief package for the people. Thank you to the House and Senate. Chuck would have schit on all of them.

  26. Truly sad. He broke such a barrier and will always be remembered. Thank you for your service, Mr. Yeager.
