AIR BOSS Ralph Royce & Old School CAF Stories – Warbird Radio LIVE – Ep523

Old-School-CAFWARBIRD RADIO – Ralph Royce is one of the luckiest guys in the world when it comes to warbirds.  He was the President of the then Confederate Air Force and one of the first directors of the Lone Star Flight Museum.  Along the way Ralph’s served as AIR BOSS for hundreds of air shows and is currently on the Board of Directors for the International Council of Air Shows (ICAS).

He’s flown most of the WWII airplanes we all dream about and he’s most likely flown a few we haven’t.  Sit back and enjoy something cold to drink as he takes Matt down memory lane with some “old school” CAF stories.

FYI: pictures above were taken by Matt’s mom in the 1980’s at AIRSHO in Harlingen (83-90).  Thanks Mom!  Tora, Kermit Week’s Mosquito, Tennessee Ernie Ford and a line of BT’s and T6’s.  Lot’s more in the archive…
