Doug Domokas, more affectionately known as the "Wheelie King," died yesterday afternoon when his ultralight aircraft crashed in Murietta, California. Domokas' flight instructor also died...

Witnesses said they saw one of the ultralight's wings rip during a steep turn. Shortly thereafter, the aircraft plunged to the ground.

Domokas hailed from nearby Lake Elsinore, California. He grew up racing motocross before he made a name for himself entertaining motorcycle enthusiasts on his rear wheel.

Still holding several world records and the hearts of many fans, he will be missed.
