Funeral services were held Friday afternoon in Florida for the stunt pilot who crashed his plane at the Reno Air Races earlier this month.
Friends and family gathered at Blessed Trinity Catholic Church in Ocala, Florida to pay last respects to Jimmy Leeward.
Afterwards guests headed towards Leeward's ranch.
Leeward had raced airplanes in Reno for decades and was a former Hollywood stunt pilot.
He was 74-years-old.
A total of 11 people, including Leeward, died when his P-51 Mustang dubbed the 'Galloping Ghost' crashed nose-first into a section of VIP box seats at the Reno-Stead Airport on September 16th during the National Championship Air Races.
