OCTOBER 2016 ARCHIVE
It is with great sadness that we have learned from Celeste Yarnall that Don Marshall (co-pilot Dan Erickson in Land of the Giants) passed away on Sunday 30th October 2016 at Cedars Sinai Hospital at the age of 80. Don has been immensely active at events in recent years and was so enthusiastic about bringing Land of the Giants back to our screens. We are so glad that he was able to attend the 2011 Land of the Giants Commentary recording as that was a very important occasion and reunion in Land of the Giants history. He will be sorely missed by his many, many fans.
