The Smithsonian Channel will air the following two shows this month featuring two of the SoCal Wing’s aircraft.
The Weapon Hunter: “Big Bad B-25” premieres Sunday, February 19 at 9PM.
This show was filmed last summer, featuring our friend and biggest fan (or is it the other way around?) WWII veteran Vern Horten, and our B25 Mitchell PBJ. Several wing members are also in the production.
Also on Sunday February 26 at 9PM, Weapon Hunter: “Pearl Harbor Payback” will be aired with scenes of our Mitsubishi A6M3 Zero flown by our Operations Officer Jason Somes.
The camera/chase plane used for the show was the SNJ “290”, piloted by wing member Rob Hertberg.
