AirVenture 2013 – Tuesday Photo Highlights

P-40ByFuelTruckWARBIRD RADIO – Warbird Radio LIVE’s Matt Jolley remembered to snap a few pictures this Tuesday during AirVenture 2013.  Here’s a look at a few of them.  Thanks for tuning in!

More coverage Wednesday from the largest aviation event in the world…AirVenture 2013.


AirVenture 2013 – “Day 1” Monday In Review!

Day1KeyImageWARBIRD RADIO – AirVenture 2013 is officially off and running and Day 1 is in the books.  Perfect weather and the world’s largest aviation event all make for a wonderful time.  Matt Jolley and the Hartman & Hilt crew spent Monday collecting stories for their first broadcast Tuesday morning.

Conrad Huffstutler’s Grumman Wildcat was first on the list to visit.  His restoration is absolutely perfect.  The airplane “is as it was” when it rolled off the assembly line (down to the cartridge starter).  Next up to see was our old friend Herb Stachler (P-47 pilot / D-Day Pilot / DFC).  Herbie was a VIP guest during Warbirds In Review and will make a grand entrance on Tuesday with several other vets on-board Texas Flying Legends C-47.  In preparation of the big arrival TFL had re-enactors paint D-Day stripes on their C-47 Monday with mops and brooms in the same fashion the original stripes were laid 69 years ago.

Another highlight was watching Mike Porter and Scooter Yoak show their airplanes off to David Born a WWII P-51 pilot.  Mr. Born flew with famed fighter pilot Robin Olds in the 434th Fighter Group and reunited with the P-51 earlier today.  The air was filled with stories as the 90+ year old warrior set in the cockpit of Scooter’s P-51 Quick Silver.  The glow in his eye was infectious and the stories were captivating.

Before leaving, the Mr. Born’s friend commented to WRL’s host Matt Jolley “I’ll bring him by for a real interview Tuesday” and we’re hoping it happens.  As with everything at Oshkosh the day ends too quickly.  We spent the evening with the Metro Warbird Association and EAA’s Chairman of the Board Jack Pelton stopped by.  As our team goes to sleep this evening… rest assured we’ll be in full force tomorrow.  If you’re in the area please stop by the Disabled American Veteran’s display and say hello (just look for the B-25 Panchito).
