Since the dawn of recorded history, mankind has been scattering his many tools of war across the globe. Sometimes lost in the heat of battle, and other times just thrown away by warriors too tired to carry them further, these implements of war have often become treasured finds of archaeologists, historians, and collectors around the world. Among the most prized, since the dawn of combat aviation in the early 1900s, are the wrecked and crashed aircraft that have been lost in both war and peace. However, such recovery and restoration efforts are not for the faint of heart, or those without substancial financial resources.These efforts can take place anywhere from polar ice packs in Greenland, to swamps deep inside savannah country. And despite this, across the globe, aircraft recovery teams are continuing their dirty, difficult, and often dangerous efforts to find and preserve the lost warplanes of bygone eras.
To learn more about recovering the wrecks of downed aircraft, join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) for Military Monday (@Writestream at #MilitaryMonday) at 1 p.m. Eastern. His guest this week is aviation historian Nicholas "Nick" Veronico, author of the books Hidden Warbirds I and II from Zenith Press (@Zenith_Press). A long-time collector of warbird memorabilia, Nick Veronico is an expert on the wide variety of recovery and restoration efforts for wrecked military aircraft across the world. Listeners are encouraged to call in and offer questions to both gentlemen, in what will be a lively hour that is part Indiana Jones, and part museum restoration.
For aviation enthusiasts around the world, there is no greater thrill than the rare chance to watch and hear a flying warbird on a sunny afternoon at an airshow. Such sights and sounds are becoming rarer every day, as more of these vintage aircraft are either grounded or lost to accidents. However, there is one special place and collection which is keeping the practice of flying warbirds alive today: The Flying Heritage Collection. Based in Everett, Washington, the collection is owned by Microsoft cofounder and billionaire Paul Allen, who has placed his fortune and reputation into building the finest collection of flying vintage aircraft in the world.
To learn more about the Flying Heritage Collection (@flyingheritage) join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) for Military Monday (#MilitartMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream) today at 1 p.m. Eastern. His guest this week is Zenith Press (@ZenithPress) writer Cory Graff, a curator at the Flying Heritage Collection and author of the new book FLYING WARBIRDS. Together they will discuss this fascinating collection of "vintage flying iron," and provide listeners with some real insights into the care and feeding of these rare artifacts.

Our guests this morning are Cindy Macha and Chris LeFave.
Cynthia Macha serves as Director for the Western Museum of Flight at Torrance Airport which is her vocation as well as her passion.
She comes from an aerospace family and is an aerospace industry veteran with a natural affinity for all things aeronautical.
Her devotion to the Western Museum of Flight stems from a far stronger motivation than that.
The work of the museum serves to preserve and promote the rich heritage of the aerospace industry in southern California and she feels strongly that we must accomplish this preservation before the opportunity is lost.
Chris LeFave is a commercial pilot who voluntarily flies for the Commemorative Air Force Museum.
The CAF is a non-profit museum which is headquartered in Texas but has over 125 airplanes on display throughout the US.
The plane he will be giving rides in this Saturday is based at the Inland Empire Wing of the CAF at Riverside Airport.
The plane is a North American built Harvard II. It was built in 1941 at Mines Field which is now known as LAX.
Chris is a Southern California native. He is an amateur aviation archaeologist and enjoys aviation history.
He flies multiple warbirds from the WWII era such as the T-6 and Stearman along with many antique airplanes from the 40's.
He currently lives near Upland, CA where he shares a 1941 Porterfield airplane at Cable Airport.
This morning, they’re going to tell us all about the T-6 Flight Experience taking place this Saturday, November 16 at Zamparini Field.
