The Last of the World War I Bomber Pilots (Red Devils)
FarOutRadio Program. Listen Hour One HERE. Hour Two HERE. This program, Frank Joseph returns to discuss a piece of forgotten history. What was it like to be a bomber pilot during World War One? From Wikipedia: "World War I was the first war in which aircraft were deployed on a large scale. Aeroplanes were just coming into military use at the outset of the war. Initially, they were used mostly for reconnaissance. Pilots and engineers learned from experience, leading to the development of many specialized types, including fighters, bombers, and ground-attack aeroplanes."
Frank Joseph describes the experience from his book Last of the Red Devils: "Sit in an open cockpit, wind in your face, and fly over enemy territory in the flimsiest of aircraft. Experience the joy, love, pathos, and tragedy of World War I as seen through the eyes of a young American in France at war.
World War I’s last surviving bomber pilot, Lt. Edward Lindsay, reveals the intimate details and drama of life with the 96th Aero Squadron." Frank Joseph and Scott Teeters explore this seldom studied piece of history and what it was like to be an aero daredevil during this devastating war.
