    Here Comes Santa Claus!

    Here Comes Santa Claus!

    NORAD, or the North American Aerospace Defense Command, continuously monitors the Canadian and American airspace--and indeed most of the world--to ensure threats to our two countries are identified and managed.

    But not everything that enters our airspace is a "threat." Every year, NORAD ensures the safe and unhindered passage of jolly ol' St. Nick and his precious cargo of Christmas cheer to all the Canadian and American children on his 'nice list.'

Couldn’t ask for more!

I couldn’t ask for more!
This is the only podcast I subscribe to and I’m always looking for more of your episodes, I found your podcast right in the middle of F-15 month and I was like Wow I need more, so now I’m on the 3rd lap of your whole show, as I couldn’t lead the life that you, your co-hosts and guests have lead due the health reasons, I have to do it though flight simulator (Microsoft) and listening to all these great stories that you have on your show,
Love the work you guys are doing and thank you for your service.
