USAF & McKenna Honor Lt Col. Hoagland With P-51 / F-22 Arlington Flyover

WARBIRD RADIO – P-51 Mustang owner and pilot Andrew McKenna, along with the Warrior Flight Team has once again answered the call to honor one of our nation’s heroes. This Thursday December 5th, McKenna along with a flight of United States Air Force F-22’s flew over of Arlington National Cemetery for the interment of Lt Col Edward Carl “EC” Hoagland, USAF. According to the Warrior Flight Team’s website, Lt Col Hoagland’s 21 years of military service spanned World War II and the Korean War. From the ranks of enlisted gunner to a command pilot, his career was filled with historical milestones such as the birth of the US Air Force and the first operational jet fighters. His service continued beyond his military retirement as an Admissions Liaison Officer for the US Air Force Academy. In this capacity, his influence helped to shape the future of the Air Force’s leaders. In a 2001 interview, Lt Col Hoagland said, “The Air Force was good to me, even with the wars. I relished everything I did, and have always been proud of the AF Academy, the values it represents, and the completed product—the Air Force Officers it graduates”. During the flyover Mr. McKenna’s P-51 wore the name: CHOOCH II in honor of Lt. Col. Hoagland’s WWII P-51.  For more information on the Warrior Flight Team just click the Quick Link posted below.

Fires of October Author Blaine L Pardoe – Warbird Radio LIVE! – 11/11/14 – 8pm (EASTERN)

WARBIRD RADIO – New York Times best selling author Blaine L. Pardoe joins Matt Jolley this Veteran’s Day to discuss his upcoming book Fires of October.  Centered around the planned US invasion of Cuba during the missile crisis of 1962, Pardoe says there’s lots of new material inside that explains how the invasion may have unfolded. Fires of October is the exhilarating military history of the Cuban Missile Crisis exploring in detail the strategic plans implemented by American Armed Forces as they headed towards a catastrophic nuclear collision with Cuba and the USSR. Using recently declassified material, Blaine Pardoe systematically recounts the origins of the crisis, from the Berlin Crisis of 1961 and Cuba s military metamorphosis, to the internal disorganization of the US military, which exacerbated tensions between the USA, Cuba, and the USSR. Pardoe reveals that the invasion plans were based on old intelligence, outdated maps, and misconceptions about the size, strength, and composition of the Soviet forces in Cuba; for the first time, and with harrowing results, he scrutinizes the potential fallout had the invasion gone ahead. Gripping and unnerving, Fires of October shows us just how close the world came to nuclear war.  Tune in at 8:00PM (EASTERN) – 11/11/14 for this special broadcast.

The Niihau Zero – Author, Historian Syd Jones – Warbird Radio LIVE! – 8pm EST

WARBIRD RADIO – (NOTE: PODCAST POSTED BELOW)Author and historian, Captain Syd Jones, joins Matt Jolley with a look at his new book “Before and Beyond the Niihau Zero”.  Captain Jones has led an impressive life as a treasure hunter, historian, aviator and aircraft restoration expert.  Hear his story tonight on Warbird Radio LIVE (10/28/14 at 8pm EASTERN). “On the day of the attack on Pearl Harbor, a battle damaged Japanese Zero landed on a remote, privately owned Hawaiian island. The Zero pilot survived for almost a week on what locals call the “Forbidden Island”, assisted by a local worker while terrorizing the island’s population before being killed by a native Hawaiian. Though the air raid on December 7, 1941 caught many by surprise, the island’s owner had actually begun preparations against the attack years earlier, inspired by a remarkably accurate prophecy. The wreckage of the Japanese plane was abandoned on the island, but it’s legacy was not forgotten. Sixty five years later the Zero and the story surrounding it became part of a new aviation museum in Hawaii. The Zero display brought to the forefront what happened the day of the attack, the conflict that ensued on the island in the days that followed, while unexpectedly generating a modern controversy in the process. In researching the existence of the “Niihau Zero” the author was allowed unprecedented access to the “Forbidden Island”, was able to interview its owners and inhabitants, and arrange for the Zero artifacts to be placed on public display. This book contains original reports as well as documents never before published that give unique perspectives into one of the most curious and thought provoking events of WWII.” QUICK LINK:  Before and Beyond the Niihau Zero STUDIO LINE: 478-787-4768 SKYPE: warbirdradio EMAIL: matt@warbirdradio.com Warbird Radio LIVE! - Author Syd Jones The Niihau A6M Zero - Episode 544 Play Now | Play in Popup | Download (347) podPressShowHidePlayer('8', 'http://www.warbirdradio.com/podpress_trac/play/10712/0/Episode544-SydJones.mp3', 290, 24, 'false', 'http://www.warbirdradio.com/wp-content/plugins/podpress/images/vpreview_center.png', 'Warbird Radio LIVE! - Author Syd Jones The Niihau A6M Zero - Episode 544', 'WarbirdRadio.com'); Read More →
