The inventor of the ACOG Scopes and founder of Trijicon, Glyn Bidon, was killed in his small plane that he was piloting in Alaska. Two other persons were with him, no survivors.

Sad news indeed. Sadder still that few Americans will know of or even understand his contribution to insuring freedom around the globe.

Rest in Peace [:(]

QCmgr Sorry for the type-O, at least I did it correctly under discussions. I have known this very talented man for many years. He was the FIRST to get trinium approved for optics. Jack

Don't S.U.I.T scopes have tritium light source? I thought these were much older than Trijicon scopes ?

I don't know the dates for the Brit's, I am refering to what he did for all of us in the USA via the NRC. Jack

Ok that's what I thought you meant [:)]

Did he still have an active role at Trijicon?

Sad. I would bet he died doing what he enjoyed though.

Any links to any news sites or a press release from Trijicon maybe?

No slam intended, I wanted to read more about him and I noticed it when I went to search for information. What a fascinating man. I drive by his Wixom plant and always wondered what new toy they were planning. He will be missed.

May he and his passengers all rest in peace and may the love of God ease the suffering of those they leave behind.
