This time we honor our veteran’s who served in the armed forces. So far, The Logbook has featured a few military stories, and in this special episode we’ll look back at some of the favorites.
We’ll also hear stories that didn’t make it into the prior shows, and some that’ll be featured in future episodes.
The stories in this special were featured from the following episodes:
12 – The Flown Aircraft Collection
This time we listen to some military test flight stories from a pilot who flew almost every jet aircraft produced between the early 50’s and late 60’s and flew many other airplanes as well.
09 – The 1931 Barnstorming Flight of a Lifetime
This time we hear from a WWII era air-force veteran and he’s going to tell us what it was like to grow up with aviation in the 1930 and we’ll listen his experiences while in the air-force and as he tried to find every little bit of time that he could to fly. Our storyteller will also share some of his war stories, which are stories from his flying career that were more eventful than all the others.
14 – “Haul’in Ass”
This time we listen to a few stories from a WWII P-47 fighter pilot, as he recounts times from during the war and some of his experiences afterwards.
19 – Propeller Production Predicaments
This time we hear about what it’s like to build a kit plane and the difficulties that come with flying with friends to different air shows. We also learn how our storyteller started a business making airplane propellers.
The 5 bladed prop above was made for a group who built a BD5 with a Mazda Rotary engine and needed a small diameter prop that could still give them the performance they needed.
26 – Pre-Purchase Mach Tuck
Don Sebastian is a self-employed pre-purchase aircraft inspect, he’s inspected everything from a Cessna 152 to a 727 and everything inbetween. His stories were fantastic and really informative!
I’ve had the privilege to talk to many men and women who served for our country, and their sacrifices are what make it possible for all of us to maintain our freedoms and safety.
Here on the LogBook it’s an honor to hear their stories and to thank them for the service they have done for all of us.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this annual special, and continue listening to stories from the bravest men and women in the world featured on The LogBook.
