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.

Wings Over New Zealand LIVE – Australia Edition – 11/24/15 – 9pm ET

WONZ-AustraliaEditionWARBIRD RADIO – In this month’s episode of the Wings Over New Zealand LIVE,  Dave and Grant are joined by well known aviation journalist and author James Kightly. Dave and James have spent the past 15 days travelling around the states of Victoria, Australian Capital Territories and New South Wales visiting aviation museums and private warbird collections, and attending the “Warbirds Downunder” airshow at Temora, NSW. Along the way they have been recording interviews with some very interesting people involved in warbirds, restoration, conservation, the airshow scene, aircraft recovery and archaeology, and other areas of Australian aviation. These recordings will be released from December onward, through the Wings Over New Zealand Show podcast, under the sub-series banner of “Wings Over Australia”.

This has been Dave’s first ever trip to Australia, so the theme of this episode will be a review of all the various places he’s visited and people he’s met, through a discussion with his Australian based co-host Grant McHerron and his very knowledgeable tour guide James.

(As this is being broadcast from rural New South Wales in Australia, we hope it does not lead to any technical difficulties.)

Wings Over New Zealand Show – Glen Turner – 9pm ET 10/20/15

Glen-Turner-WEBWARBIRD RADIO – In today’s show we hear from live guest Glen Turner, who not only served on No. 75 Squadron RNZAF as an Armourer, but is also the Secretary of the No. 75 Squadron Association. This squadron was the first foreign squadron adopted by the Royal Air Force in WWII, as No. 75 (NZ) Squadron RAF, and while flying Wellingtons, Stirlings and Lancasters they became one of the most experienced heavy bomber squadrons during the war, and suffered some of the highest casualty rates of any RAF squadron.

After the war they became No. 75 Squadron RNZAF back home and flew Vampires, Canberras and finally Skyhawks in defence of New Zealand, as well as seeing further action bombing the terrorists in the Malayan Emergency. Glen will discuss the famous squadron’s history, and tell us how he and the Association is keeping that history alive today 14 years after the squadron disbanded. We will also hear from Errol Cavit about his recent visit to the Archer Hill Fly-in in Queensland, Australia, and the TVAL Weekends here in New Zealand. Plus the latest warbird news from around New Zealand.
