F-14 Test Pilot & Astronaut – Joe Edwards – Warbird Radio LIVE! – Episode 587

JoeEdwardsF14WEBWARBIRD RADIO – When Joe Edwards comes on the show the headline is always hard to write.  Joe’s a former US Naval Aviator, graduate of Navy Fighter Weapons School (TOPGUN), US Navy Test Pilot School, NASA Space Shuttle Commander and most recently he’s become the only Astronaut air show performer in the world.

Joe loves to fly and air shows give him a chance to share aviation and interact with fellow aviators from all over the world.  His vintage US Navy T-28 routine is low, fast and awesome.  During this episode we’ll rewind to one of Joe’s most noteworthy flights in the F-14 (see the picture above).  It’s hard enough to land on an aircraft carrier, just imagine doing it without a canopy and being blind in one eye.  It’s a story you don’t want to miss.

As always, your calls and comments are welcome.  You can use the contact information below to join the conversation.  Thanks for tuning in!
