A huge congratulations to Keith Webb, producer of the Unsung Heroes project, on the release of the first of his new Unsung Heroes podcast episodes. They are absolutely terrific. The episodes feature RAAF aircrew members from WWII telling really interesting stories from their flying careers. So far there are three episodes. Episode One focuses on No. 10 Elementary Flying Training School, RAAF, which was the Tiger Moth school where new Aussie pilots were taught to fly during WWII. This school was based at Temora, now the home of the Temora Aviation Museum. There are some terrific stories told by pilots who trained there and a few who instructed there, and this show gives a great insight into the aerodrome that is nowadays synonymous with Warbirds, airshows and aviation history.
The second episode features one of Australia's best known fighter pilots, Tony Gaze. He talks about flying the Spitfire in the RAF, and shooting down enemy aircraft such as the Messerschmitt Bf 109's, and the Me 262 jet.
And the third episode has two crew of an RAAF Sunderland that sank the German U-boat U-461.
I highly recommend these shows, please have a listen and show Keith your support. He has done a terrific job. You may recall Keith featured on the WONZ Show back in Episode 90 within the Wings Over Australia sub-series.
