Connie Flight Details & Greg Colyer – Warbird Radio LIVE! – Ep 586
WARBIRD RADIO – Stew Dawson joins Matt Jolley with details on his flight in “Bataan” the VC-121A recently purchased by Lewis Air Legends. According to the Planes of Fame (POF) air museum, this VC-121A was the personal aircraft of General Douglas MacArthur, Supreme Commander Allied Powers, during the Korean War.
Sources at POF say “Bataan” will eventually travel on the air show circuit. The Planes of Fame air museum acquired the aircraft over 20 years ago and operated it for a short time before putting it on display at their Valle, AZ location. According to POF’s website, the sale of “Bataan” will help advance their mission of preserving aviation history, inspiring interest in aviation, educating the public and honoring aviation pioneers and veterans.
Matt will also check in with T-33 air show pilot Greg Colyer and find out what’s in store for Ace Maker Air Shows in 2016. Greg operates two T-33’s across the United States and annually performers at over 20 aerial events. His dynamic routine displays the full flight envelope of the T-33 and is one of the most aggressive T-33 demonstrations ever flown.
Tune in and join the conversation this Tuesday (1/19/16) at 8pm ET. As always, your calls and comments are welcome.
