Warbird Radio LIVE! – Author Stephen Coonts – Episode 603

WARBIRD RADIO – New York Times bestselling author Stephen Coonts joins Matt Jolley on Warbird Radio LIVE.  Mr. Coonts is the author of the classic flying tale, Flight of the Intruder and many more.  His latest work Liberty’s Last Stand is now available and is available via the link below. According to his website: Mr. Coonts was born in 1946, Stephen Paul Coonts grew up in Buckhannon, West Virginia, a coal-mining town of 6,000 population on the western slope of the Appalachian mountains. He majored in political science at West Virginia University, graduating in 1968 with an A.B. degree. Upon graduation he was commissioned an Ensign in the U.S. Navy and began flight training in Pensacola, Florida. He received his Navy wings in August, 1969. After completion of fleet replacement training in the A-6 Intruder aircraft, Mr. Coonts reported to Attack Squadron 196 at NAS Whidbey Island, Washington. He made two combat cruises aboard USS Enterprise during the final years of the Vietnam War as a member of this squadron. After the war he served as a flight instructor on A-6 aircraft for two years, then did a tour as an assistant catapult and arresting gear officer aboard USS Nimitz. He left active duty in 1977 and moved to Colorado. After short stints as a taxi driver and police officer, he entered the University of Colorado School of Law in the fall of 1977. Mr. Coonts received his law degree in December, 1979, and moved to West Virginia to practice. He returned to Colorado in 1981 as a staff attorney specializing in oil and gas law for a large independent oil company. His first novel, Flight of the Intruder, published in September 1986 by the Naval Institute Press, spent 28 weeks on the New York Times bestseller lists in hardcover. A motion picture based on this novel, with the same title, was released nationwide in January 1991. The success of his first novel allowed Mr. Coonts to devote himself full time to writing; he has been at it ever since. He still enjoys flying and tries to do as much of it as possible. Mr. Coonts’ books have been widely translated and republished in the British Commonwealth, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Italy, Spain, Mexico, Brazil, Turkey, Poland, Bulgaria, Hungary, Russia, China, Japan, Czechoslovakia, Serbia, Latvia, and Israel. The U.S. Naval Institute honored Mr. Coonts with its Author of the Year Award for the year 1986 for his novel, Flight of the Intruder. He was a trustee of West Virginia Wesleyan College from 1990-1998. He was inducted into the West Virginia University Academy of Distinguished Alumni in 1992. In 2014 West Virginia University awarded him an honorary Doctor of Letters degree.

The Wings Over New Zealand Show – Iroquois with Des Gyde – Episode 14

WARBIRD RADIO – On this episode of Wings Over New Zealand LIVE Show the date of broadcast here in New Zealand is the 15th of June 2016, which is exactly 50 years to the day since the arrival in New Zealand of NZ3801, the first RNZAF Bell UH-1 Iroquois helicopter. The type revolutionised Royal New Zealand Air Force operations and became an icon in New Zealand skies as it operated with the New Zealand Defence Force and many civilian organisations in an incredibly wide variety of roles. The Iroquois fleet recently retired from RNZAF service and while a small few have now gone to museums, the rest of the fleet have been shipped to the USA to new owner Dakota Air Parts.    So in this show we will remember the glory days of the Iroquois. Dave will be speaking live to our guest Des Gyde who spent many years working with the Iroquois, first on the maintenance side as a Safety and Surface Technician, before becoming a Helicopter Crewman. Des will tell some great memories of the Iroquois from his days based at Hobsonville, Wigram and Singapore with them, and on deployment to in places like Antarctica and the Sinai. We’ll also have a round up of warbird related news from New Zealand and Australia, and Grant will give a quick take on the RAAF’s operation of the Iroquois too.

From The Archive – Bill Coleman’s D-Day Experience

WARBIRD RADIO – In 2007 my wife and I (along with a group of friends) went to Dresden, Germany with WWII “D-Day” paratrooper Bill Coleman.  The last time Bill Coleman was in Dresden was during the fire bombings of WWII when he was held prisoner inside a church and left for dead.  After surviving the attacks his captors put him to work stacking bodies, the smells were forever burned into his memory.  During our trip Bill sat down for an interview with me and shared his experience during D-Day, what it was like being captured and eventually escaping towards the end of the war. A few years after our visit to Dresden I asked Bill to come on Warbird Radio and share some additional thoughts.  My wife joined me during our conversation and the resulting interview is what you’ll hear below.  This is the raw tape, un-edited – his story, his words.  We lost Bill several years ago and I think about him every Veterans Day and especially June 6th.  Let’s never forget… Matt Jolley WarbirdRadio.com   From The Archive - The Bill Coleman Story Play Now | Play in Popup | Download podPressShowHidePlayer('13', 'http://www.warbirdradio.com/podpress_trac/play/12384/0/FromTheArchive-BillColeman.mp3', 290, 24, 'false', 'http://www.warbirdradio.com/wp-content/plugins/podpress/images/vpreview_center.png', 'From The Archive - The Bill Coleman Story', 'WarbirdRadio.com'); Read More →
