Theerawat Lahib passed away on Saturday night 18 March 2006 at Pattaya at only 22 years old.
His death is a big loss to all in the family of jet sports. He was a young fantastic rider of Flamingo Racing Team who achieved many world titles. I'm sure many can remember him at the 2005 World Finals where showed his strength and determination by overcoming an accident during the race and going on to win the title.
