Jou this is heavy. RIP Matt.
So young, much too young. Cost me some nerves when he announced the A380, it looked good and then vanished suddenly but he certainly had extremely hard times, not only in terms of flightsimming business.
This is absolutely shocking tbh. Didn´t know he was doing that bad.
