Mossie Pilot Mike Spalding &The Aviation Historian – Warbird Radio LIVE! – Episode 503

MikeNMossie1WARBIRD RADIO – On this episode of Warbird Radio LIVE Matt Jolley catches up with Mosquito pilot Mike Spalding and Mick Oakey from The Aviation Historian.  With all the buzz around the Military Aviation Museum’s deHavilland Mosquito has been making we thought it would be fun to hear ( first hand ) from the pilot of the wooden wonder.

Mike goes into airspeeds, maneuvering and of course what she’s like on landing and takeoff.

Mick Oakey (Managing Editor of The Aviation Historian) is no stranger to warbirds or journalism.  For over 20 years Mick was the Editor at Aeroplane and has now struck out with Nick Stroud to create the new “gold standard” for all aviation journals:  The Aviation Historian.  Each edition is chock full of stories, pictures and first hand accounts of aviation’s treasured past.  This is not your typical “airplane magazine” it’s truly worthy of a leather binder and spot on your favorite shelf for safe keeping.

Thanks for tuning in and we hope you enjoy the show!  Feel free to post your comments below.
