Harold Krier
...
Harold Krier joined the Army Air Corps and served as a Flight Engineer during World War II. After the war he earned his A&E license, learned to fly and started the airport in Ashland, KS that bears his name. In the late forties he built his first aerobatic airplane, a clipped wing cub, and taught himself aerobatics out of the old Air Corps primary flying manual. His interest in perfection led him through a series of airplanes - the Krier Kraft Acromaster, the Great Lakes Special and the Chipmunk. With these, Harold represented the U.S. in competitions in Spain, Russia and Germany.
Harold was a master mechanic and builder of airplanes but he freely gave it all away to anyone who asked for help. He was a quiet man whose flying spoke louder than a shout. He flew for the pilots, not the crowd, and only the pilots in the crowd could fully appreciate the skill and smoothness with which he could perform any acrobatic maneuver. Perhaps more than any other individual, Harold Krier was responsible for the revival of aerobatics in this country in the fifties and early sixties.

Harold Krier
The farm boy from Ashland, Kansas, is no longer among the aerobatic fraternity. He was killed spin testing a prototype airplane in Wichita, Kansas at 4:00 p.m. on July 6, 1971. There were no witnesses to the accident; but he was found about a half mile from the wreckage with his chute only partially opened and the spin chute installed on the aircraft torn away. Services were held for him in Ashland at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, July 9, 1971.
Harold was a quiet man whose flying spoke louder than a shout. Harold flew for the pilots, not the crowd, and only the pilots in the crowd could fully appreciate the skill and smoothness with which he could perform any acrobatic maneuver.
Harold Krier was born on April 6, 1922 in Olpe, Kansas. He enlisted in the Army Air Corps in 1940 and served as a Flight Engineer during World War II. He was discharged a Master Sergeant in 1945. After the war he went to Des Moines, Iowa and earned his A and E mechanics license.

Harold was a master mechanic and builder of aerobatic airplanes, but he freely gave it all away to anyone who asked for help. He would do anything for a friend and he had no enemies. Many were indebted to him for help he had given, and most of these were there when he was laid to rest.
Yes, Harold Krier is gone. His mortal remains lie on a hill overlooking Ashland, Kansas, but he will live forever in the hearts of those who knew and loved him. He will be sorely missed.
