Warbird Radio Presents – The Ralph Maloof Story

RalphMaloof_BW_WEBWARBIRD RADIO – On this episode of Warbird Radio Presents we surprise a WWII aviator with a flight in his former airplane.  Ralph Maloof flew a variety of aircraft during the war but the P-51 was always a standout.  Thanks to Cowden Ward Junior and Freedom Flyers, Mr. Maloof once again took flight in the mighty Mustang.

Mr Maloof’s story is one for the history books.  He’s been a life long inventor and even in his 90’s he continues to work in aviation and mentoring the next generation.
