The Gathering of Warbirds and Legends is underway here in Topeka.  I sat in on the briefing this morning.  Lots and lots going on and Dan and others covered everything from parachute deployments to warbird formation sequences.

This might not be the best episode for those who like their podcast material in filtered and summarized form.  There’ll be some of that later, to be sure.  But, for now, you can hear what it’s like to attend the briefing at an utterly unique gathering of old iron.
