Warbird Radio Presents – The James Kunkle Story!
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.
