Rank #4: Ep.91 – KC-135 with Mark Hasara

Podcast cover
Read more

Welcome to a brand new episode of Xtended and this time we are talking air to air refuelling with hugely experienced USAF tanker pilot Mark Hasara.

For twenty-four years Mark Hasara operated one of the Air Force’s oldest airplanes, the Boeing KC-135 Stratotanker.

His career started during the Reagan Administration, carrying out Strategic Air Command’s nuclear deterrent mission and, moving to Okinawa Japan in August 1990, he flew missions throughout the Pacific Rim and Southeast Asia.

Mark’s first combat missions were in Desert Shield and Desert Storm. As a Duty Officer in the Tanker Airlift Control Center he planned and ran five hundred airlift and air refuelling missions a month. Upon retirement from the US Air Force, Mark spent seven years at Rockwell Collins in engineering, designing and developing military fixed and rotary wing aircraft cockpits. Mark became a full-time author and defense industry consultant in 2014. His book, Tanker Pilot, is available now (see below).

Rank #5: Ep.88 – Air Chief Marshal Sir Richard Johns GCB KVCO CBE FRAeS

Podcast cover
Read more

In a brand new interview for Xtended, former Chief of the Air Staff Sir Richard Johns CBE joins us to give a real insight into flight operations, the strategic defence reductions and inter-service rivalry. This is a fascinating and frank interview.

Air Chief Marshal Sir Richard Johns was commissioned at the RAF College Cranwell in 1959 and completed his flying training on Piston Provost and Meteor aircraft.

For the next nine years, apart from a short intermission as an ADC, he served as an operational fast jet pilot flying Javelin night fighters and then fighter recce Hunters operating from Aden and Oman.

In his last year as a flying instructor he taught the Prince of Wales to wings Standard.

Two tours in the RAF Germany Harrier Force preceded a succession of national and NATO senior appointments culminating in his promotion to Chief of the Air Staff and Air ADC to the Queen.

On retirement in April 2000, he became Constable and Governor of Windsor Castle.

A past chairman of the Board of Trustees of the RAF Museum, he is now president of the RAF Historical Society.

His illustrious career gave him the privilege of a rare, if not singular, perspective of the RAF, their sister services and national defence matters, witnessing a steady decline in the combat power of the UK’s armed forces, as financial management took precedence over identifying strategic priorities and maintaining the vital skill-set of service personnel.

His views are forensic and forthright, balanced and thought-provoking.

His autobiography “Bolts from the Blue – From Cold War warrior to Chief of the Air Staff” is published by Grub Street Books and is available in the U.K., US and Canada from November 2018.

It is essential reading for anyone interested in the development of Allied air power over the last fifty years.

On 24 April 1994, after encountering problems just seconds after taking off from Sydney Airport, DC3 VH-EDC ditched in to Botany Bay with all 25 souls on board saved. The pilot, retired Captain Rod Lovell talks to us about the ditching and blowing the whistle on his treatment by the authorities.

Podcast cover
Read more

Welcome to a brand new episode of Xtended and this time we are talking air to air refuelling with hugely experienced USAF tanker pilot Mark Hasara.

For twenty-four years Mark Hasara operated one of the Air Force’s oldest airplanes, the Boeing KC-135 Stratotanker.

His career started during the Reagan Administration, carrying out Strategic Air Command’s nuclear deterrent mission and, moving to Okinawa Japan in August 1990, he flew missions throughout the Pacific Rim and Southeast Asia.

Mark’s first combat missions were in Desert Shield and Desert Storm. As a Duty Officer in the Tanker Airlift Control Center he planned and ran five hundred airlift and air refuelling missions a month. Upon retirement from the US Air Force, Mark spent seven years at Rockwell Collins in engineering, designing and developing military fixed and rotary wing aircraft cockpits. Mark became a full-time author and defense industry consultant in 2014. His book, Tanker Pilot, is available now (see below).

Ep.88 – Air Chief Marshal Sir Richard Johns GCB KVCO CBE FRAeS

Podcast cover
Read more

In a brand new interview for Xtended, former Chief of the Air Staff Sir Richard Johns CBE joins us to give a real insight into flight operations, the strategic defence reductions and inter-service rivalry. This is a fascinating and frank interview.

Air Chief Marshal Sir Richard Johns was commissioned at the RAF College Cranwell in 1959 and completed his flying training on Piston Provost and Meteor aircraft.

For the next nine years, apart from a short intermission as an ADC, he served as an operational fast jet pilot flying Javelin night fighters and then fighter recce Hunters operating from Aden and Oman.

In his last year as a flying instructor he taught the Prince of Wales to wings Standard.

Two tours in the RAF Germany Harrier Force preceded a succession of national and NATO senior appointments culminating in his promotion to Chief of the Air Staff and Air ADC to the Queen.

On retirement in April 2000, he became Constable and Governor of Windsor Castle.

A past chairman of the Board of Trustees of the RAF Museum, he is now president of the RAF Historical Society.

His illustrious career gave him the privilege of a rare, if not singular, perspective of the RAF, their sister services and national defence matters, witnessing a steady decline in the combat power of the UK’s armed forces, as financial management took precedence over identifying strategic priorities and maintaining the vital skill-set of service personnel.

His views are forensic and forthright, balanced and thought-provoking.

His autobiography “Bolts from the Blue – From Cold War warrior to Chief of the Air Staff” is published by Grub Street Books and is available in the U.K., US and Canada from November 2018.

It is essential reading for anyone interested in the development of Allied air power over the last fifty years.

My favorite aviation podcast.

By 104246 - Sep 14 2018

Even when I’m not in the mood for an aviation-themed podcast, I will still pull up this one as I enjoy listening to them banter. And I’ve learned so much about British and European aviation, something I have little exposure to here in the States. My favorite episodes so far have been have been the ones about spaceflight, but they’re all good.

Extremely informative podcast on Aviation
