This Week In Military Aviation History: 19-25 February

February 23, 2007 1:05 pm

Hello Folks, welcome back to our little weekly get together where we all find out what happened during This Week In Military Aviation History. On the 1941 Historical Aircraft Group Museum Website Message Board I post Today In Military History, which has turned out to be a much broader subject. I have had to sort of specialize in the two World Wars, Korea and Vietnam. This, of course, still includes the aviation portion, but expands to the battles that took place. I’m thinking of including the political portion. Boy, if I keep this up, my shortest post of the day is going to become the longest. But it would be in keeping with one of my goals – Have Fun and Learn Something.
Be Safe,
Tom K.

Warbird Adventures Inc.

February 17, 2007 2:32 pm

Warbird Adventures Inc is a company based out of Kissimee, FL that offers rides and flight experiences in thier T-6/SNJ WWII trainers. This is an amazing experience and well worth the money, especially for those non-pilots out there. Here’s your chance to actually fly an aircraft and see what it’s like to be 3,000 feet up and inverted. One of thier pilots, Chuck Gardner, put together a video that he has put up on YouTube and here it is…

This Week In Military Aviation History: 12-18 February

1:07 pm

Hello Folks, here in Rochester, New York we’re having our first substantial snowstorm in two years. The roads are a mess, the schools are closed, and tomorrow doesn’t look very good either. I still think it’s payback for the mild start to the winter season we had. At least I don’t have to go out if I don’t choose to, which is fine by me. I’ve walked and taken buses through my fair share of winter storms. So now I’m warm and comfortable typing away on my ‘puter. Isn’t life grand?
Be Safe,

February 10, 2007 11:09 am

Hello Folks, I thought I’d tell you a little bit about myself. I’m married (37 years), have one son, downsize/retired and enjoy building aircraft models. I’m a charter member of the 1941 Historical Aircraft group Museum and started moderating the website Message Board in late 2004. I enjoy reading and am into alternate history. That’s about it. Oh, I’m pushing the big 60.
Be Safe,

Two Unhurt in CA Stearman/Waco Midair Collision

February 5, 2007 9:04 am

Proving the durability of WWII vintage primary trainers, the pilots of a 1940 Waco UPF-7 and a 1942 PT-17 Stearman were unhurt after a midair collision a mile off the Palos Verdes Penninsula on Saturday afternoon. Accounts say that the propeller of the Stearman clipped the tail of the Waco shortly after takeoff from Torrance Municipal Airport.

The pilot of the UPF-7, Ralph Baxter, flew his stricken plane to the shore where he brought the plane down in shallow water. The Waco flipped over, but Baxter was able to walk to shore where he was taken to a local hospital for examination and was released.

 The Stearman, piloted by Harry Haggard, flew to the Torrance Airport immediately after the collision and landed without incident.

The NTSB is investigating the accident.
