Super awesome military aviation podcast!

“Jell-o” and “Sunshine” are the perfect duo for the fighter pilot podcast! They are very down-to-earth (pardon the pun) and very thorough about the planes, the weapons and the people, and they keep it very entertaining, as if fighter jets need any added spice! Your guests are always top-notch and paint such brilliant mental imagery for me as they share personal stories, details about the aircraft, and so on.

I reached out to Vincent aka “Jell-o” a little over a year ago with some questions concerning an aviation themed summer camp talk I was preparing and he was super helpful. He even offered to skype in and spend several minutes talking with the kids and fielding questions. That was definitely a treat for me, but it was very special for the kids, who had perhaps never really paid much attention to military aviation before.

It’s very easy to get bit by the bug and nerd out while listening to you guys! You guys are great ambassadors for the military aviation community to not only wannabes like myself, but also to future generations of aviators as well. You guys are truly inspiring!

Thanks for your years of service to our nation and for sharing your experiences, passion, and love of these amazing machines with us!
