Test Pilot Elliot Seguin – Warbird Radio LIVE! – Episode 599

Elliot1-WEBWARBIRD RADIO – Civilian test pilot Elliot Seguin’s name is synonymous with flying really cool airplanes in Mojave, California.  Just do a little investigating yourself and you’ll see what we mean, this guy definitely has the right stuff and we all should be following his projects.  Elliot’s been on Warbird Radio before and we learned a lot from his experience.  It’s been several years so he’s coming back to talk “test flying”.  Now here’s the deal, we can all learn from his experiences, especially warbird operators.  Every flight in an old military airplane is often a “test flight”.  Let’s learn from the guy who has that title on his business card.

Ric Peterson also joins the conversation with an update on his recent visit to Japan where he learned about a special Mitsubishi Zero.  Tune in and hear the full story.  As always, your calls and comments are most welcomed!
