In this episode of The Hangardeck Podcast, “Pitchlock” Pete and Fast Eddie talk with US Navy Captain (ret.) Mike "Gintac" Ginter who has coordinated and leads a Warbird formation through the most guarded airspace in the United States. Gintac outlines his plan and the history behind this awesome historic event and it was a true pleasure to join the guys and be a part of a great organization with really awesome aviators.
The Potomac Flight over the Pentagon and Arlington National Cemetery is in honor of DAV (Disabled American Veterans) and pays tribute to the services and sacrifices veterans have made to secure our nation’s freedom. This annual ceremonial formation flight is visible from Alexandria, Arlington and Rosslyn, VA. The Culpeper Air Fest serves as a home base for the ground-breaking flight.
In its day, the Texan represented the cutting edge of aviation technology, a mere 35 years after the Wright brothers’ first flight on a North Carolina beach. Over 15,000 “Texans” were built between 1938 and 1947, and approximately 400 are still flying today.
We are proud to support and bring this episode to our fans. We look forward to bringing many more veteran based episodes for your listening enjoyment. This ceremonial formation flight will be visible from Alexandria, Arlington and Rosslyn, VA. Culpeper Air Fest will serve as a home base for the ground-breaking flight.
