Friday Favorite: The Denny May Story – Warbird Radio LIVE! – Episode 244

WARBIRD RADIO – Here’s this week’s Friday Favorite!  In 2011 we interviewed Denny May (son of W.R. May) who told us his father’s famous story of encountering the infamous Red Barron. 

This show ranks among my top favorites since the stories are so seldom told.  Mr. May’s famous encounter is arguably one of the most debated moments in aviation history.  Who shot down the Red Barron?

The only part of the story that is not contested is the fact Mr. May was chased and narrowly escaped.  Hear the story this Friday with you own ears and see some exclusive pictures below as well.  Until next week!
