The Wings Over New Zealand Show – Hudson Stories! – Episode 13

Hudson_StoriesWARBIRD RADIO – The Wings Over New Zealand LIVE Show is back with another show for May 2016. Grant is away but Dave is joined by aviation journalist Nick McIndoe with some news from the kiwi warbird scene. And the feature story this month is marking 75 years since the first flight of the Lockheed Hudson medium bomber in New Zealand service. This aircraft type was revolutionary in military aviation in New Zealand and was the first bomber type that RNZAF was able to take to the fight on the front lines during the Pacific War. Dave interviews two aircrew members who served on the same crew during WWII, navigator Ron Wilson-Walker and wireless-operator/air gunner Merv Davies. They served in No. 3 (General Reconnaissance) Squadron, RNZAF, flying from Guadalcanal with the famous Cactus Air Force.
