May) who told us his father’s famous story of encountering the infamous Red Barron.  This show ranks among my top favorites since the stories are so seldom told.  Mr. May’s famous encounter is arguably one of the most debated moments in aviation history.  Who shot down the Red Barron? The only part of the story that is not contested is the fact Mr. May was chased and narrowly escaped.  Hear the story this Friday with you own ears and see some exclusive pictures below as well.  Until next week! V/R Matt Jolley Warbird Radio LIVE! ORIGINAL STORY:  Next week is the kick off of League Week II.  Let’s look back at day three of our 1st WWI Aviation History Week…with the son of legendary aviator W.R. “WOP” May.  Mr. Denny May will not only tell the story of his father’s encounter with the infamous Red Barron, he will also share many additional stories about his father’s flying career.  This is a show you simply don’t want to miss.  The fun starts at 10am (EASTERN) right here on Warbird Radio.  Thanks for listening!

Notice the B-17 landing gear on the floor?? WARBIRD RADIO –   Take a trip down memory lane and listen to this week’s Friday Favorite!  Here’s the story of our first visit with restoration legend Tom Reilly. In October of 2009, I’d just given up the anchor desk for FOX news in Georgia and soon found myself in Tom Reilly’s hangar in Douglas, Georgia. WarbirdRadio.com had been on the air all of a month but Tom showed me around like I’d been in business for years. His hospitality has been the same ever since and always memorable.  For years I’d heard about Tom’s work and had been a fan of his since I was kid. His restoration track record is impressive and perhaps unmatched, 10 B-25’s, 2 B-17’s and a B-24 plus countless others. Listening to Tom’s interview is not only a trip down memory lane it’s a great example of what it’s like to visit Tom’s hangar on any given day. There are projects and old airplane parts everywhere and the work continues no matter who’s there. Tom’s shop is a living, breathing embodiment of his passion for warbirds and the stories they tell. Sure it’s a business, but it’s his obsession with these flying machines that drive him forward. Take a listen and enjoy the tour of Mr. Reilly’s world. P.S. – there are some really neat “early” pictures of the XP-82.  Till next week!  Matt Jolley Original Story (10/26/09): Tom Reilly shows us around his hangar in Douglas, Georgia.  You’ll get up close and personal with the P-40 and numerous other airplanes Tom is working on.  Click on the picture gallery below for a photo tour of Tom’s shop.  Thanks for listening.

Unexplained seats in the aft section of the fuselage and missing records (prior to 1955) set the stage for something secret.  Was 053 part of a special forces unit post war or was she a member of a covert mission during WWII? Find out this week on Warbird Radio Presents – The B-29 Mystery.  For a complete update on the evidence we’ve discovered since the original broadcast, just keep reading.  Thanks for taking a look! DOWNLOAD OR PLAY THE PODCAST AT THE VERY BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE QUICK LINK:   Museum of Aviation   STORY UPDATE (01/30/15):  Since broadcasting this story in 2010, Warbird Radio.com has confirmed 44-84053 was most likely used for Psychological Operations post World War II.  It’s secret mission would have been to deliver agents behind the Iron Curtain in Europe.  With help from a retired USAF Colonel (who doesn’t want us to print his name) and some clever research, it was discovered 053 has a high probability of being part the Air Resupply and Communications Service. Documented in Apollo’s Warriors – United States Air Force Operations During The Cold War, B-29’s configured like 053 were operated by the 582nd Air Resupply and Communications Group from RAF Molesworth.  In a strange twist of fate the B-29’s that were retro-fitted for this mission were stored and re-configured at the Robins Air Force Base depot in Warner Robins, Georgia before departing for Molesworth.  Today, 053 rests on the same property. “The required number of bombers were soon pulled from the mothball fleet at Robins AFB, Georgia, and restored for duty,some with fuselage markings still showing the number of combat missions flown over Japan.  These modifications included removing all guns for self-defense, saving those in the tail turret, and installing a “joe hole” in the former aft-belly gun turret space for parachutists to exit.  Resupply bundles would hang like clusters of melons in the bomb bay to be dropped like bombs as the plane passed over the drop zone.” – Apollo’s Warriors Some clues to 053’s past are still highly visible.  After careful examination around wheel wells and bomb bay doors,  black paint chips still remain.  The “joe hole” can clearly be seen in the aft belly turret and many other clues have helped lead to this hypothesis. NOTE:  At this point, the only way to definitively solve the mystery would be confirmation by a crew member or photo of 053 in action.  So naturally, we’re working on that now (grin).  We have located some very clear documentation supporting our theory but before going to print we’re going to get the full story.  If you have any thoughts, we’d love to hear from you!

Saylor, one of the 80 brave men known as the Doolittle Tokyo Raiders, has died.  Lt. Col. Saylor passed away quietly at his home in Washington State around 11:00am on Wednesday January, 28th, 2015. Warbird Radio spoke to Tom and Catherine Casey, long time friends and managers of the Doolittle Tokyo Raiders, who confirmed Mr. Saylor’s passing.  The Casey’s said: “We are truly saddened at the passing of Lt. Col. Ed Saylor, engineer of Crew 15. We are also very proud to have known and spent so much time with him. We will miss his sense of humor, his smile and his dedication to the legacy of Doolittle Tokyo Raid.” Lt. Col. Saylor requested there be no funeral or military ceremony.  His final wishes were simple, to be buried beside his wife.  If you’d like to honor the memory of Lt. Col. Saylor, he asked that you make a donation to the Wounded Warrior Project, a Quick Link has been posted below. FYI:  Our final interview with Mr. Saylor has been edited and posted below for your enjoyment.  His story is truly unique and one seldom shared.  God speed Mr. Saylor.
