Default RIP William Pogue, Skylab 4 Pilot

Wikipedia notes the death of WR Pogue at the age of 84.

He was the pilot of the final Skylab mission, 84 days in 1973-1974.

Prior to that, his career in the Air Force included time in the
Thunderbirds, a 2-year assignment as a test pilot in Great Britain
under the USAF/RAF Exchange Program, and instructor of research pilots.

Post-flight, he was the author of several books, including _How Do You
Go To The Bathroom In Space_.
