The Gathering Foundation’s New Book – Warbird Radio LIVE! – Thursday

Angela West - Warbird Radio LIVE! - Thursday

WARBIRD RADIO – Angela West with the The Gathering Foundation joins Matt Jolley on Warbird Radio LIVE to talk about their new book.  “The Gathering of Mustang and Legends: The Final Roundup” book will be released on Tuesday, December 6.  The compendium of this once-in-a-lifetime aviation event has gone to press and will be released in time for the holidays.  Show time is 10am (EASTERN) on Warbird Radio.com.

According to a news release from The Gathering Foundation, four years ago an aviation event like no other brought together more Mustangs and the men and women who flew them than any other time since the end of WWII. The Gathering of Mustangs and Legends, “The Final Roundup” was greatly anticipated by those who flew the P-51 Mustang decades ago, by those who are privileged enough to fly them today and by those who are enamored with aviation, both past and present. It was an unforgettable experience for everyone who made the pilgrimage to Rickenbacker International Airport in Columbus, Ohio in September of 2007.

The Gathering Foundation spent four years compiling the best photos and stories from that amazing weekend. Pilots from as far away as England brought their planes to be part of the event. Accomplished and renowned aviation photographers from all over the world came to the gathering to capture the incredible air-to-air moments that filled their lenses and the sky with Mustangs in formation.  A hangar was converted into a stage to capture stunning studio photos of the 77 Mustangs that attended.

Photographers also captured the candid as-it-happened special moments of the weekend that has been referred to as the “Warbird Woodstock”.   The compilation of their work fills more than 260 pages with over 450 unique photos.  The limited-edition coffee-table quality book also includes bios and historical and current photos of the 49 Legends that attended.

Over 150,000 people had the privilege to experience the gathering first hand. For those who were there this book will bring back great memories in vivid detail. For those who did not attend, this is their opportunity to experience the magic that happened at the Gathering of Mustangs: The Final Roundup.

The Gathering Foundation (TGF) is a 501(c)(3) organization. TGF’s mission is to support the archival collection and exchange of information as it pertains to vintage fighter aircraft, as well as the brave men and women who flew and serviced these aircraft in wartime. Proceeds from the sale of TGF merchandise support the organization’s mission.
