Syd & KT Jones - Warbird Radio LIVE! - Wednesday

WEDNESDAY – Aside from being warbird pilots, Syd, along with his wife KT Budde-Jones, are successful treasure hunters, aviation historians, aircraft restoration experts and much more.  They will share their amazing story tomorrow morning during Warbird Radio LIVE.  Currently, Syd is working on the White 1 FW-190 restoration and flying his AT-6 (when KT isn’t flying it).  Together this “warbird power couple” has accomplished so much it will be hard to fit it all in one show…  For a little background info, we’ve attached a great article from Air & Space Magazine about their involvement with the Niihau Zero.  Tune in tomorrow morning at 10am (Eastern) and hear about their adventures.  Thanks for listening!

They’re Not Superheroes…But Really Close – Warbird Rescue.com

Learn More About The Boys From Warbird Rescue.com

WARBIRD RADIO – They don’t wear spandex suits and capes but they do know a thing or two about saving warbirds.  Chris Henry and Rob Morelli might not be superheroes but they are two self-described “regular guys” who love warbirds.  Not long ago, they were driving by the Grissom Air Museum and noticed the B-17 needed some attention.  They stopped in and asked if they could help paint the airplane.  Fast forward a few months to today and Chris is on the Grissom Air Museum’s Board of Directors and the B-17 will hopefully have not only a paint job soon, but also a hangar to call its own. 

The idea of the regular “Joe” saving a warbird is what led Chris and Rob to launch WarbirdRescue.com.  The website, still in its infancy, is designed to be a place for distressed warbirds to find some help.  If there’s a warbird in your town that could use some help…post it on WarbirdRescue.com and get the word out. 

To help raise money for the Grissom Air Museum’s B-17 the boys are selling t-shirts with The Miss Liberty Belle’s new nose-art prominently displayed.  All of the proceeds benefit the restoration and go directly to the airplane.  The idea of restoring a B-17 with t-shirt money is something many people said couldn’t be done.  In a conversation Tuesday afternoon, Chris tells Warbird Radio that the funds raised so far will cover the cost of the paint.  Chris says now they’re saving for sheet metal repairs and continuing efforts for the building fund.  Now that’s impressive!   In less than 24 hours the guys have met their first goal.  WarbirdRescue.com is a simple, straight forward, grassroots idea that will grow into something much larger.   If you’d like to get involved and help an airplane in your hometown email the boys at WarbirdRescue.com and get started.

 P.S. – Go buy a t-shirt and help save a warbird today.
