The First Episode of The History Guy podcast

Featured

In the first ever History Guy podcast, we remember two stories of forgotten history about Aviation Accidents. First, in 1966, an SR-71 “Blackbird” disintegrated at 78,000 feet. The pilot’s first thought was, “No one could live through what just happened. Therefore, I must be dead.” Second is about a photo op in June 1966, involving an XB-70A No. 2, an F-4 Phantom, an F-5, a T-38 Talon, and an F-104 Starfighter, which went terribly wrong.
