Retired U.S. Navy Rear Adm. James Lloyd “Doc” Abbot Jr. never let his age get in the way of having fun.

The Mobile native was still flying his own airplane in his 90s, even after the Federal Aviation Administration told Abbot he couldn’t fly alone, according to friend Dave Reaney.

So he found someone to accompany him on flights, said Reaney.

“They would go to the airport and the man would just sit there and Doc would fly his plane,” Reaney recalled.

His flying days ended Aug. 10 when the 94-year-old Abbot died in Alexandria, Va.

U.S. Ambassador to Libya J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed Tuesday in an assault on the American consulate in the eastern city of Benghazi, the White House said.

The Defense Department has dispatched two Marine Corps antiterrorism security teams to Libya to reinforce security there, a senior Marine official said. In a statement issued by the White House early Wednesday, President Obama said he had directed an increase in security at U.S. diplomatic posts around the world.

Stevens, 52, and the others were fleeing the consulate when a rocket-propelled grenade struck their vehicle, news reports from Benghazi said.
