    Default Tom Dwelle in Flight Journal Magazine

    Just a note to let anyone who's interested know that I just did an article with Tom on his exploits flying A-1E Skyaiders in Vietnam and in particular, a mission he flew on November 20, 1965 for which he won the Distinguished Flying Cross.

    Long before rounding the pylons behind the Rare Bear-like 3350 in Critical Mass (and T-6s Tinkertoy, Yankee Air Pirate), Tom flew behind unmodified 3350s in Skyraiders. The story is in the January/February issue of Flight Journal Magazine - out now.

    Cheers.

    I am on the road adjusting to being a "snowbird" at the moment and have not yet succeeded in getting mail properly forwarded to me..

    I've not had a chance to read the article but I've re-subscribed to Flight Journal and Jan's articles are always a good read!.

    Keep up the good work and thanks for sharing here Jan!

    As an edit: Tom Dwelle is a fascinating person! I look forward to reading this!

    Thanks Wayne.

    I have a couple more stories in the same/current issue, including the cover story on a C-17 crew that flew refugees out of Afghanistan during the chaos back in August.

    Another story in this issue of interest to folks here is the interview I did with Steve Hinton on flying the world's only original airworthy Fw-190, the Flying Heritage Collection's Fw-190 A5/U3. In the story Steve relates what it's like to fly the airplane, from takeoff to landing and cites the difference between flying the Flugwerk replica Fw-190 POF has and the real thing.

    Steve passed along a great quote from Skip about Mustangs at the end of the story.
