For many Americans, the word "Airpower" is defined by the exploits of the Eighth Air Force flying from England to bomb targets in Germany and occupied Europe. But there was much more to American airpower during World War II, then just the efforts of, "The Mighty Eighth." One of the more notable contributions to the Allied victory in Europe came from the U.S. Fiftheenth Air Force, based in the Mediterranean Theater of Operations. Though smaller than the Eighth, the Fifteenth Air Force was more diverse, and in some ways had a more challenging and varietal target set to prosecute. These ranged from radar stations that had to be destroyed prior to the invasion of the French Riviera in the summer of 1944, to the massive petroleum production facilities at Ploesti in Hungary. The Fifteenth Air Force was also the home to the all-Negro 332nd Fighter Group, the famous "Redtails" which had been trained as an "experiment" at Tuskegee, Alabama. And in spite of having been forgotten by most aviation historians, the men of the Fifteenth Air Force created a combat record as substantial as any other of World War II.
To learn more about the Fifteenth Air Force, join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) for Military Monday at 1 p.m. Eastern. His guest this week is well known aviation historian and Regency History Press author Barrett Tillman, whose new book, FORGOTTEN FIFTEENTH, chronicles the men, missions, and story of this little-known aerial armada. Together they will take listeners through a Mediterranean odyssey, combining World War II's most advanced weapons and aircraft, with a region as old as history itself. Listeners are encouraged to call in and offer both questions and opinions, and what should be a most enlightening hour of history for aviation buffs.
(144) Yanks Air Museum with Mr. Frank Wright

Although the collection began in 1972, Yanks’ was founded in 1982 by Mr. and Mrs. Nichols. The Nichols originally sought to acquire only three exceptional aircraft, the P-40 Warhawk, the Beech Staggerwing and the Stearman trainer. Purchased in 1973 the first aircraft of the collection was the Beech Staggerwing.
Even now, the Nichols’ still travel and collect, ever strengthening their resolve to restore and preserve American aircraft, their history and artifacts. The Nichols met and dealt with some of the most prominent icons in the aviation community to ensure the accuracy of each restoration. In the early years only true aviation enthusiasts were allowed into the museum, which was at that time more of a storage facility.
Now after more than four decades of public interest along with visitors from Japan, Australia, Germany, England and France, and of course America, the secret museum is no longer! The Yanks Air Museum preserves a collection of America’s aviation and aerospace legacy numbering more than 170 aircraft and has become one of the most prominent private aircraft collections in the world.
Aircraft from WW 1 up to the Most Modern F-18, F-16, and F-15 Fighters

It's Manic Monday! The work week has begun and folks are going nuts on Twitter as per usual.Ron Paul sent out a tweet today that caused extreme butthurt amongst the NeoCon contingent. In reaction to the tragic death of infamous US Navy Seal sniper Chris Kyle, Ron Paul commented that "he who lives by the sword dies by the sword." These insensitive remarks were taken as disdain towards the USA troops by the reactionary wannabe warhawk conservatives who've never liked Dr. Paul's foreign relations policy stance. The conservative blogosphere errupted with accusations that Dr. Paul "attacked" and "slammed" Kyle and tainted his memory.Speaking of conservatards... Todd Kincannon, leader of the Twitter Gulag Defense Network, sent out a few crude tweets in regards to Trayvon Martin during the Super Bowl blackout yesterday. He tweeted that Martin deserved to be put down like a "rabid dog" and also that if Trayvon had grown up he would have sucked dick for drug money.Piers Morgan goes deep into Gun Country!
