Show Notes

Have you ever wondered what today's fighter pilot shares with a WWII fighter pilot? Our next series covers this as we feature WWII P47 Thunderbolt pilot 2nd Lt Ken Thomas who flew in the China Burma India Theater with the 88th Fighter Squadron of the 80th Fighter Group. We also have 2 active duty military guest co-hosts from the Oklahoma Air Nat Guard 138th Tactical Fighter Wing to provide a modern military perspective on these roles. Tighten your goggles and check your mae west, 2ndLt. You are flying ground support against the Japanese in the skies over China during WWII in the almighty fighter-bomber- the "Jug".
