The major regional business story on Friday is the fatal plane crash that took the life of Micron CEO Steve Appleton.

The photo here is an archive photo from 2005 showing Appleton in the hangar with a plane described as a stunt jet. The news service name for the photo was "Daredevil CEO."

As a younger business reporter, I met Appleton when the Review produced a four-part series on how Boise became a technology hub. Appleton was a good interview.
