WARBIRD RADIO – Mark Peterson from the Classic Jet Aircraft Association joins Matt Jolley on Warbird Radio LIVE with a look at the world of vintage military jets. Mark is no stranger to warbirds, he currently operates two P-51’s (Hell-er Bust & DiamondBack) and one Alpha Jet.
According to MustangHighFlight.com, Mark started flying at the age of six in a Piper Cherokee Arrow. The aviation bug bit early and bit hard. Mark’s father Ed was a B-24 Liberator pilot during World War II and flew 29 missions for the Army Air Corps in the European Theater. After returning to civilian life, Ed found ways to keep aviation in his business and personal life. As a result, Mark grew up surrounded by aviation.
Today, Mark flies air shows across North America and is a Director with the Classic Jet Aircraft Association. Tune in Tuesday 5/12/15 at 8pm (EASTERN) for a lively discussion about classic jets and more. As always, your calls and comments are welcome and appreciated.
FYI: The guys from WarbirdsNews.com will stop for a look at this week’s headlines!

WARBIRD RADIO – Nearly everyone has imagined what they would do in “the clinch” — the time where circumstances demanded positive, selfless action, right NOW. Nearly everyone, sees themselves in the role of the hero. It’s a human fantasy that has fueled popular entertainment for centuries.
Jim Kunkle’s story is no different. In a nutshell, upon discovering his formation was about to be attacked by a superior number of enemy fighters, and unable to warn the rest, turned his P-38 into the attack in an effort to disrupt the blow. Listen as host John Mollison talks with James Kunkle (370th Fighter Group) about a fateful moment over German skies in September of 1944.
