He won virtually every award that a living soldier can win in his exploits in his plane is a fighter pilot are the stuff of legend, but it's also interesting that when he broke the sound barrier Chuck Yeager, first man to fly fashion the speed of sound. The reason he was in that plane was because the guy that worked for Bell, the company that made the jet, he said, You know what to do that you're gonna have to pay me about a million bucks.

You want to go and I said there aren't many 80 year olds. I'd go flying with General, but you're one of them and you flew with Chuck Yeager. I flew a Chuck Yeager. We broke the speed of snow. We didn't wake up over grass valley and my favorite part was he let me fly his little his playing a little bit and I was getting Little squirrely. He said. Hey, I didn't live 80 years so you could turn me into a smoking hole. Give me my plane back. He was great. He was fantastic and He's gonna be missed because he was everyone who ever bumped into him in an airport or river else. Always had a great report about their conversation. Everyone should watch the right stuff this weekend. Oh, you should. Yeah, absolutely. And you know, for a long time, at least back then he was the only man They named a street after at Edwards Air Force Base, who had not died as a test pilot.

"General Chuck Yeager, a World War two fighter pilot and the first person to break the sound barrier in flight, has died at the age of 97. The first time except in time, a man has flown an airplane faster than the speed of time. That event took place in 1947. Yeager was later portrayed in the book, the right stuff. And then the 1983 movie eager was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom and 1985.

And it occurred to me, Bernie and you would have had this discussion yesterday about Rudolph the red Nosed reindeer. You couldn't write a song today? No short people write very effective. In fact, I'm triggered right now. When you say no. Are you being serious? So there you go. No, no, no. You're being serious or well, I'm not seriously triggered. No, I know it, but definitely not. He would never his own that in this day and age about short people show people short people got no reason to live. Yeah, It's like a Dr Zeke Emanuel. People over 75. They got no reason to live. You gotta you're crawling around. You're on a cane. And you've got somebody changing your underwear? No, no s so I don't think so. But in any case, look, we did a nice shot. Out to Ah, John Lennon Commemorating his his tragic death. Also a great American hero, died yesterday. We talked about it a little early, he bears mentioning because this guy Chuck Yeager, He was 97 years old. When he died. He broke the sound barrier. That's what he's known for. And you know, breaking the sound barriers in 1947. He flew The sound of speed is 767 MPH. He ended up flying 805 miles an hour to break that sound. And then that's when you hear the explosion. Hear a bone. Just like member the supersonic jets that used to come in they they've eased him out. They've missed those. The Concorde was the contract right? They got they would break the sound better there. There would be a bone. But anyway, that was chucking. But that wasn't all he did. This guy served in three wars. He was a fighter. Pilot, World War, two Korean War Vietnam war. He was shot down over France when he was shooting down German Nazi planes. He was shot down. He escaped from France who was living in the woods. The resistance got into Spain. He went back to England, and he started flying again. I mean, this is Chuck. This is a manly guy. I told you I met him back in the eighties. Get journey. I miss Daisy came in. He was promoting a book or something. Thing, But that is a manly man. Chuck Yeager rest in peace. And thank you for your service, Sir Chuck Yeager, now ah, a guy who is the polar opposite to a Chuck Yeager. His name would be well this Let me just say he's the son of Mario Cuomo. He's Frey does older brother Governor Cuomo because I mean, he thinks everything is funny. And all with this Corona virus is a tough guys A mean guys unanswered. Yeah, and and and he's annoyed When people talk about that thousands of people that he killed killed he gets annoyed. That's funny, right. So anyway, he thinks everything's funny. He's sitting around yesterday on a zoom call with Dr Anthony Fauci. And utility jerks member yesterday. Excuse me earlier this week, but maybe it was late last week. You talked about injecting hand sanitizers in your blood first. Listen to that. Take a Listen. I'm gonna also put some of this New York clean in the vaccine. Which will have the added benefit of cleaning your arteries while you're being treated by the vaccine, do it all at the same time, and he wants people to take him seriously and again. Remember, the president made some sort of, you know, joking reference like he was doing it wasn't even joking. What he was saying was if there are ingredients in these cleaners That kill viruses and infections. Is it possible we can use them in some capacity to help with the virus? Anything was all that crazy was spitballing. It was actually the biggest apology and idea this guy was straight up, joking around, and nobody said school and he did talk about injecting hand side he talked about literally injecting hand sanitizer. So yesterday, a zoom call with his buddy Dr Fauci, who is friends with Fredo. They're sitting around, yucking it up. Listen to this. Maybe we enlist you. I'll do it with you. We'll do an ad telling New Yorkers It's safe to take the vaccine to, uh, you know, put us together. We're like the modern day the Nero and Pacino You could be which will never whichever you want. You could be that The Niro, Pacino. Crouchy informal. I'll give you from boy Who do you want to be? The Niro Pacino? Which one do you want to be? Oh, so one of the other one. I don't want to hurt your feelings with the other. Yeah, You kidding me? You think Janice Dean found that funny? I always think of her because both not one. But both of her in Loy's, died because of Cuomo's policies and thousands more. Thousands more have loved ones who died because of what he did. You wanna look come up with a pair. How about maggot and Costello? I go with that. That's funny. You know, Pacino and DeNiro. They killed people fictionally in movies. He actually killed people. So it's no joke. It is no joke, but he thinks it's funny Governor Cuomo. He thinks it's funny. I mean, that's what we have these days. And then, of course. All of a sudden, all summer long There was nothing. Not that not a word about the police. Can he wounded injured spit on bricks thrown on their heads? Nothing over the summer. The riots. No National guard to help the police out when they were overwhelmed, Squat. But then one owner of a restaurant in southern Staten Island and Republican struggle southern Staten Island defies his orders stays open because his he's dying. He's not, is he? His whole livelihood is just being crushed before him. And that unfortunate accident front page of the New York Post came out today. The video, It shows that he did not hit that He didn't run it slam into the cops. Cops chased them. Yeah, they weren't even cops. They were sheriff's deputies who normally just collect taxes and repossess cars. But for some reason they're wearing like NYPD uniforms. But you say that they were not wearing an NYPD uniform in this particular or not, Okay, but you couldn't tell they were officers. So the guy was he didn't know who was chasing him. He actually thought they were bad people. And then when the guy gets in front of the car, and he just sort of inches his way, and the dude jumps up onto the car, the sheriff's deputy and he hurt his ankle or something like that. Anyway, Cuomo. Finally he defends the law enforcement. Finally yesterday, take a Listen. You don't assault a police officer. They are defending a person who drove his car into a law enforcement officer. And that's who they're champion. Someone who Attacked a law enforcement officer. You don't attack the NYPD. You don't attack a Lauren, Fourth enforcement officer who's doing his or her job. How dare you? What signal are you sending? Glamorized that type of thing? Yeah, that's right. Run over the police. Who says that you never assault upon. Shut up. Where were you when they were dumping buckets of water when they were throwing Molotov cocktails this past summer when they were throwing bricks when they were getting hit over the head with canes? Where the hell were you? Never said not a word, and by the way, all the while violating his coronavirus guidelines, not a word. All of a sudden, he's grandstanding. Who does that? Who does that? Who are these people? Don't know the guys he's got. He's the definition of a psychopath sociopath about but I looked up psycho path and has everything that he is a narcissist. Hey, no remorse in denial, everything everything that psycho pants said He's a homicidal psychopath. Funny because they actually described they use that word to describe President Donald Trump. And the truth is, in the true definition of the word. It really applies to Governor Cuomo. No empathy for the restaurant owners got none whatsoever. None. No, he doesn't care. Very callous. He's all good until theres okay. My brother Fredo is okay. I'm okay. My daughter is a good I'm good anyway. Beat Bernie is coming up next. Your chance to meet the smartest guy in New York. Check.

"chuck yeager" Discussed on What It Takes

"In case, you run into a problem and. Also, it had a movable horizontal stabiliser the tailplane on all airplane, just stabilisers and you have elevators on the back to make airplane. Go up and down. Well, they did build the capability in the the x one to move the whole horizontal stabiliser changing attack. And that that really was the big secret on how we got the airplane through the speed of sound that horizontal stabiliser if you had any trouble following that bit of aero dynamic talk. I'm with you to make sure I understood I went and consulted a diagram of a plane and did a little extra reading up. So let me try and rephrase picture a passenger jet. You know, those little wings at the back of the plane that are part of the tail they are there to keep the plane level as it flies there called the horizontal stabilisers and they're in a fixed position. But each one has a movable flap similar to the flap. You see on the main wings, and those are the elevators Yeager just. Referred to a pilot is able to control the elevators from the cockpit to tilt the nose of the plane toward the sky or toward the ground. The thing is though when Chuck Yeager took the x one out the first several times, the elevators stop doing their job as soon as the plane got within six percent of the speed of sound and no one wants to be in a plane that points up or especially down without control. So the engineers invented a mechanism that made the whole horizontal tailpiece adjustable not just the elevators it involved, compressed nitrogen and a Jack screw air motor whatever that is. But voila problem fixed two or three more practice flights and Yeager was able to steer the plane safely through mach one. Otherwise known as the speed of sound that was the big thing that came out of the whole. X one program was finding out that you needed or zone stabiliser to operate in the region, the speed of sound or above the speed of sound nets reason on every fighter that you. See today, you just sheer slab tale with back there and no elevators. Of course. The other big thing that came out of breaking the sound barrier was discovering it wasn't a barrier. When the x one hit that sweet speed all the shock waves and the shaking stopped. It was like racing your car down a highway filled with potholes and speed bumps and then hitting a patch of newly paved utterly flat asphalt. But by the way on Chuck Yeager big supersonic day in one thousand nine forty seven. Everything was not smooth sailing before he stepped into the plane, every great story needs a suspenseful glitch. And here's his the x one was to me. Short of fly twice a week airplane. It took two or three days to reduce the data from your flights is complex airplane to get serviced with liquid oxygen alcohol, and and gaseous nitrogen and in the meantime, I'm flying about fifteen different other airplanes every day on different test programs. So it was a hard grand. The x one was a to me was a pleasure to fly because you know, you were crammed her or really crowded in in doing test work, and you took the whole day to do it. And just so happens that particular flight I think was on Tuesday. On the weekends there. It had Mirak. It was called. Then we used to go out to Pancho Barnes of or sort of. She had a rodeo grounds in a swimming pool and motel in in a good restaurant, go out there and you unwind, and I took Glenis after I think on on a Saturday
