Sunday 18 March my Plane Talk lecture at Hill AFB Aerospace Museum was aired on C-SPAN Book TV. The lecture called Fast Asleep to Full Out War in 30 Minutes discussed air refueling operations on 9/11 and how a team of tanker planners at Fairchild AFB had to create a plan to transfer 7-12 million pounds of fuel a day to protect the west coast.
I want to thank Aaron, Robb, and Terry at the Hill Aerospace Museum for providing such an awesome backdrop for this Plane Talk lecture. I had a lot of fun doing this and hope to do more there.
The segment runs for an hour and nine minutes and can be found here.
