Drake Morgan ,

You guys rock

I’m only 11 years old and I love fighter jets you guys really upgraded my understanding of the f18 and other jets

Rob at work ,

Lots of better ones than this.

I keep going back to this podcast and being disappointed. For example they spent 1 hour on the Falklands War with a Sea Harrier pilot, hardly any detail and just no depth. It’s like they’re in a rush to quit. 10% True is way better, Movers channel is way better, even Aircrew Interview is better than this.

Jon 000001 ,

Thank you!

I’m alive today and have a family because of CAS. I was ‘the 18 year old with a gun’, well, early 20’s but still a kid. Everything changed after combat and I’m still working through stuff. FPP is a great distraction to put my mind in a different place. Two decades later it’s still CAS but in a different way.
