Steve Appleton CEO of Micron died a few days ago, about a mile and a half from me at the Boise Airpor in a plane crash. If you check him out he was a very interesting and accomplished man. R.I.P. Steve Appleton.
Death On February 3, 2012, Appleton was killed while attempting an emergency landing in a Lancair IV-PT turboprop at the Boise Airport in Boise, Idaho, moments after taking off. He had aborted a take off a few minutes earlier.
Prior to this, he had a serious plane crash piloting an Extra 300 in 2004 in which he sustained a punctured lung, head injuries, ruptured disk and broken bones.
