    Chelsea Sexton reminded us today, this historic day for Tesla, to remember those that got us here and referenced an early blog: A few of our own evchels

    Those of us with Roadsters see the 'in memoriam' screen on a regular basis. Some of you will remember the plane crash that claimed three Tesla employees. 3 Tesla Employees Killed in Plane Crash | Autopia | Wired.com I never knew Doug Bourn, Brian Finn or Andrew Ingram - but they ride in my Roadster every day.

    Respect.

    Great post. Was sad to hear about when the news broke. I'm sure they'd be proud that their contributions are living on in the Model S.

    I, too, remember this and how sad it was (especially the crazy aftermath). Very cool that Tesla has a screen in the Roadster to pay respects, I didn't know that.

    Thanks for linking the threads, Teg. I had wanted to bump it with a new thread (rather than reopening the old ones) ... but lots of good comments in there.
