"Duane Cole (1915–2004) was an American Aerobatic pilot. Duane earned his private license in 1938, followed by his commercial in 1939 and instructor in 1940. Cole performed in his first airshow in 1940, followed by training cadets in the Civilian Pilot Training Program throughout World War II. Cole performed from 1947-1963 as part of the Cole Brothers Airshows along with his brothers Arnold, Lester and Marion Cole, who remained in the business for many years flying a 65 hp clipped wing Taylorcraft BF-50. Duane left the airshow business in 1963 following the death of his son, Rolly Cole, who was killed during airshow practice over an Illinois farm field practicing for the EAA fly-in held at Rockford, IL, when the engine failed and separated from the fuselage of his 450-HP Stearman biplane. The following year Duane was asked to produce and manage the Reno Air Races, which had been dormant for some years. Duane continued to produce the Reno races at least into the 1970s."
