Ride along with renowned aviator, writer, and photographer Greg Brown in his light airplane, the Flying Carpet, as he searches behind clouds for the real America, experiencing countless aerial adventures along the way.
Listen to “Flying the Mists of Time,” Greg’s Flying Carpet Podcast Flight #9
Ever heard of anyone sowing terror from a tiny 2-seat Cessna 150 trainer? Well, grab your logbook ‘cause it’s time for Flying Carpet Podcast Flight #9, “Flying the Mists of Time,” about a little-known aviation event leading up to one of the US’s most heinous terrorist acts.
Check out the Sterling Hall bombing here. When I described looking up to blue skies through the windows, I failed to mention that it was six stories of windows! It’s astonishing that more people weren’t killed. Oh, and note the FBI wanted poster…
