Bob England - A hang glider pilot who should have known better

"He fell at least 100 feet and crashed into the side of the cliff when his experimental parachute-like craft collapsed during a test-run above the Torrey Pines Golf Course. He suffered massive injuries and died at the scene.
-- "Paraglider dies in crash," Lodi News-Sentinel (CA), 3 Jun 1996, 3.

England was a highly-regarded British hang glider designer who had unfortunately transitioned to paragliding.
