The World’s Only Flying C-97 – Warbird Radio LIVE! – Episode 632

WARBIRD RADIO – Tim Chopp founder of the Berlin Airlift Historical Foundation joins Matt Jolley with a full report on their C-97’s recent post restoration flight.  On November 7th 2017 the Angel of Deliverance took flight after a lengthy restoration with Tim Chopp and his crew.  Tim’s organization is no stranger to operating large four engine aircraft.  Since 1988 the foundation has owned the Spirit of Freedom C-54 and they’ve told the story of the Berlin Air Lift to countless people.  

Matt also welcomes International Council of Air Shows President John Cudahy with news on the airspace privatization efforts underway in Washington.  This proposed legislation would dramatically effect the air show industry in the USA and subsequently the operation of vintage military aircraft.  Hear both stories tonight (11/14/17) starting at 8pm ET.  To join the conversation just use the contact information posted below.

A special thank you to photographer Corey J. Beitler for allowing us to use his image of the C-97.  

LIVE Broadcast begins at 8pm 11/14/17 – Podcast will immediately follow.
