So the story says to Tampa Bay women, but they're actually from Sarasota. So I'm not claiming them. I don't think Tampa should claim these women. Sarasota could have them. But these two women, both young one is 28 1 is 39. They decided to pretend to be a police officer and try and pull the car over. They put the red and blue lights in their windshield. They had a siren going and they were attempting to pull someone over. Luckily, the cops got there first. Um stupidest thing ever, though. They were on Facebook live filming the whole thing. They thought it was hilarious. They were yelling at the person who they were trying to pull over. So probably the stupidest thing you could have done. You immediately incriminate yourself. They thought it was a joke They put on their Facebook live. They were like, watch. We're going to try and pull this person over. In a regular car. I mean, there are a lot of undercovers and you never know if it's an undercover, so I guess you could fall for it. I know there's some number you can call with. You think that it might not be a cop, and I think this person did that. So somebody almost swerved into me on the road a couple days ago, and I so badly wanted to pull him over. I'm not a cop. I'm sure there's an app you can download. Really Anyone feels like I wanna pull you over so badly right now, because what you did is illegal, but I don't have that authority don't pretend And if you do, don't put it on Facebook live on Natalie.

While it hopes list of most sensible, simple states, which we actually did recently and then a sexual violence survey, So it's not what you think. I guess we're thinking of jealousy. But Nevada came in at number one in North Dakota is the least jealous. Um, state in the United States could you know I don't know how they come up with that Cumpston.

We've got open lines, all our but right now we are talking with Dr Joseph Schofer, and he's a professor of civil and environmental engineering, an associate dean of the McCormick School of Engineering at Northwestern and he's got a great podcast, which you should absolutely check out. If this interests you even one wit and that's the infrastructure show dot com and no, it should because infrastructure impacts you in pretty much every facet of your life. And you know, we've been laughing about comedians who say that back at the 1964 world's fair we were told we'd have flying cars by 2020. Now we're learning how to wash our hands. And to a degree. We didn't get nearly a ce Faras. We thought we we would did way doctor chauffeur. Wait, didn't and I've done some historical research on flying cars, and I couldn't take flying cars back to the days of Glenn Curtiss, who? Nobody alive now remember, but From the 19 tens in 19 twenties, and there've been dozens of attempts and nothing has worked out. But I don't think you're more than five years away from seeing some kind of flying. Transportation vehicle that's designed for for for short trips. I don't particularly think that's a grand idea, but people are working very hard and very competitively to do that. It's possible that the technology Uh, to make a work is his closest hand and I think a big part of that is sometimes keep the driver away from the controls and automated to make sure that these vehicles don't run into each other. But I think it's gonna happen. Wow. Now, what about mag lives? Full mag Lev is a ground technology. It has the capability to move ground vehicle at very high speeds and so expensive so this would be for a train or something that we would call a train. It's moved along. Bye bye, magnetism and its levitated by magnet magnetism. That is it. It's lifted off the rail so that the friction between the vehicle and the and the guideway goes essentially zero, so it takes much less energy to move. There are a few examples around the world will have happened here. I know people are talking about Mag Lev for riel here in the United States is a lot of interesting technology ideas. Advanced passenger rail. Personally, I'm not very optimistic about it for a variety of reasons, and a big part of that is that the airline industry At least you used to have a very strong dominance in the market place and they're not gonna be easily displaced. No, they're not. And, of course cost too something I never factored. But, you know, give me a Chicago winter. If there's not enough salt on the roads, I'm yelling. Give me maglev. So I guess you could do that. But we also have the CD and that's going to carry you metre will take care of a lot of people. In the winter. And and that's a reason to look at what's happening to mass transit now where they've lost the prop different properties of lost 70 80 90% of the market. And there's an important financial question as to whether or not they'll be able to survive. And this is important health questions whether or not people being willing to ride them that that absolutely truer today. You know if this were a year ago, I'd say what health issue But you're 100% right about that before I get into broadband. James in Chicago wants to get in on the act. So welcome to WG and Radio James. Hello. Okay. You have a date show anyway, Kate of that when you mentioned about about the landlines, I'd like, okay, but I inherited my parents landlines, and I've considered a lot more reliable than myself. Fall. Yeah. On, so I just I said, Okay. Why should I give up my on another thing? I think this was a year ago. Maybe two years ago, Probably 18 T here will not try to pretty much tried to get out. So they said, Why should we have to continue to maintain landlocked? You tried to go through legislation do that They didn't succeed. But they say they won't keep trying, especially as the older generation I'll pass designed the younger one state. They don't need it. And they think Holiday guide who is there to the bar their cell phone. Have, like, OK the boy's feet. So from this to take the cell phone use in case there's a lot of each other, sometimes contact. I Okay? Has had two buses here. It so I'm like thinking. Why would I want OK? Why give up my regular rent? Give up the land line. No, thanks Out is the landline. Tio basically passed from this. All right, James. Thank you for waiting in and thank you for calling. You have a nice day. You too. Of course, Behind James's comments is is the infrastructure And you know when we talk about telephones, whether its cellular or more important going to VoIP we're talking about needing great broadband infrastructure. And at this point America overall, we don't have it. I really don't. And there isn't a public policy that ensures that that we have. And yet the society and technology have changed so substantially that for a lot of functions of daily life, and certainly for functions of business. We're absolutely dependent on broadband capacity. So when when we set Children home from school Because of Kovar, 19 There were substantial numbers of Children that didn't lived in households where they didn't have and still don't have a strong broadband capacity really cuts him out of the out of the educational process. If you turn that around and say, Well, it's everybody really has fight quality. Broadband capacity. Then the cost of the intellectual cost of staying at home is substantially reduced. It isn't backto to zero, but if it makes things much better, absolutely. And I was hoping if there was a silver lining in this pandemic that it would really highlight the sorry state of broadband in America. And so far, you're seeing school district's that air, you know, putting out hot spots and doing things cellular early were, you know things were pretty bad in rural areas, but I haven't yet been hearing a real hue and cry about it. You know, we just don't have acceptable broadband. And to me one of the worst things is people will. And of course, do the advertisements will crow about their their downstream? Well, you know, I got a gigabit connection Eyes again. You got 10 megs up. And the asymmetrical nature of it in most places, and then you have the FCC that finally went from 4 to 25 megs calling that broadband and that's that's on the downstream and it's just sickening to me. To see where we are compared to what used to be behind the Iron Curtain and what Poland and Romania have, because they had to build it out from scratch. We're we're not moving along in this director. One of the advantages that they had was that they could build from scratch. But we had an existing infrastructure that was reasonably strong and we weren't willing or able to walk away from that. So if you would look at Countries in Africa. The cell phone is really completely dominate the market because they never had the infrastructure for wired phones on DH. They had to make that work. No, it's I think access to cell phones is on the one hand essential and cell phones and broadband are essential and att the same time they're certainly not equitably. Distributed. So what I do know from people in my family that school district in money cities around the country ended up having to purchase and give Lots of computers. Two kids didn't have them in their house. And then they didn't work because the broadband wasn't there. Absolutely. And that's why we've seen especially in rural areas them doing partnerships where they're creating hot spots, and they're you know they're handing that out, too. Two people, but you look a rural America and for years the demise of this small town is well known. And what really drives me crazy is when you'll see the 20 year plans from these little birds that no one can find on a map. The word broadband isn't even in there. And without that technology, thes places air truly going to die. Well. They heard some stories about towns that have pulled their resources to build their own network and the private companies have coming and and bought lobbyists to pay for legislation to block that, because we hear that the municipality was competing with the private sector, but the private sector wooden in response But we will build it. They said. No, we won't build it, but we will let you build it either. So there's something wrong in the regulatory system there that prevents people from it. If you were taking care of themselves when they have a problem like that, absolutely. And I'll tell you how broadband crazy I am. When Chattanooga became the gig City I was living in Utah at the time. I said it really. I could get a gig symmetrical for 250 bucks a month. I'm moving. And I did. I moved to Chattanooga N'Gotty PB and I lived through the wars and you're right. EPB for people who don't know is the power company. It's owned by the City channel. And because it was all a smart grid that they had done fiber to the house to every house..

We hit about thirty counties regularly, and we've been doing this for twenty six years. So that is are plug general the this day in history? What do you think June sixteen anything of value happened in the world's history, June sixteen? I must say after an exhaustive search by found very little that would be of interest to our listeners, certainly. There are things that went on in places like Moldova Lithuania.

And also two thousand seventeen on this day, President Trump re. Reinstates the travel restrictions to Cuba, that were loosened by the Obama administration, and we did it's a coupe. It Cuban day. We've already mentioned Cuba or could Gooding junior being arrested on, grabbing the left breast of a of a woman in front of his girlfriend right at a bar caught on TMZ teams. He has it on their website. We talked about this earlier in the show. They were talking about mastectomies apparently. But it has the, the contact us fee for purposes sexual gratification, and they get approved that beyond a reasonable doubt become a tough case. If you read anything on Cuba Gooding junior, it's not merely the contact. That's the crime that could be if he had in the purpose of sexual gratification. And they're able to show that purpose beyond a reasonable doubt to jury in New York, then Cuba has a big problem that convicted sex offender, and which in Ohio would be made at Torrey fifteen years. And if he was an Alabama and potentially looking to get out on parole, they're gonna get out on parole. We talked about this if you're just joining us. Alabama as law. That's four days, old now of chemical castration for men for men and only for any sex offenses committed against the minor. Underage thirteen. Here's what I found Geronimo was born in eighteen twenty nine I thought American tribal leader. That's all I got American tribal leader was he was he part of a particular tried. I think he was he died in nineteen. Oh nine. The Ford Motor Company company is incorporated in nineteen three IBM was founded in nineteen eleven. But it was called the computing tabulating recording company and indicate New York. C T, R, C, IBM, somehow, they got the computing, tabulating recording company and into New York became IBM de marketing division and around that time. And this is the seventy fifth anniversary of the execution of George Steny junior and fourteen years old. I wanna. Spend a minute on this. George was convicted of first degree murder of the of the of two girls in South Carolina, nineteen forty four who's African American. It was South Carolina. It's in the forties to white girls come up missing. They were later found bludgeoned to death. George was taken as a suspect, apparently confessed was arrested. He was held fifty miles away in Columbia, South Carolina because of the real risk of lynching and his trial was his death penalty case was heard eighty days later and his jury was all white because most blacks and South Carolina were still disenfranchised and prohibited from voting. They couldn't be selected as jurors and reports are almost a thousand people crowded the courtroom over the months of the trial over the weeks of the trial over the days of this murder trial. No one day including jury selection. One day, the jury took ten minutes to deliberate, his lawyer asked zero questions of any witness in the three accusers being the police officers that, that heard, this confession that was never reduced. Writing and they even gave conflicting accounts of what the confession actually was what he said, and they return a guilty verdict. The judge sentenced George to death by electric chair. There's no transcript of the trial. No appeal was filed against his nineteen forty four and on June sixteen nineteen forty four at seven thirty pm George was brought into the execution room. He was five foot one, they weighed ninety pounds. He was so small compared to the usual dull death row inmates. They had difficult time putting him on the frame of the electric chair where to get him up close enough to the electrodes. So they put him apparently before yellow pages were big. They put the bible on the chair, so they had George sit on a bible in order to fit properly into this chair. Here comes the mass now the mask is way too big for George because Georgia's. Five foot one and ninety pounds. And that first jolt of twenty four hunt first surge of electricity twenty four hundred volts surge trysofi. Georgia's mask comes off. He was dead and four minutes. He was fourteen years old. Can you believe that in no one asks, how a ninety year old can kill two two people? I'm sorry, ninety pound person can kill two women. Fourteen years old. Unbelievable is a stain upon our history. You know and so defense attorneys a wheat, Eric unite had a nasty jury Trump week or two ago. Some of the worst facts you can imagine. It afterwards, you talk to the jury, and they go, you know, how, how can you represent something like that. And we'll look our job is defense attorneys. It's up to you to decide guilt or innocence. But that's that's on you. It's up to the prosecutor to present their case to try to convince you that the main are woman is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, the judge's job, to make sure that everyone follows the rules. It's our job to make sure everyone's rights are protected and question. The evidence question the testimony in after all that you, still you still find beyond a reasonable doubt that I know my sleep, I looked great. Now you can be fairly certain now he'd be fairly certain. Right. And so our job is not to defend men or women who've done heinous acts or less heinous crimes. But to make sure that before the government throws the switch on a fourteen year old, their lawyers defense lawyers there that are going to challenge everything before that happens. Of course, the death penalty was just recently lifted for minors and in the United States Supreme court it just in the last two decades for juveniles. So that's our job, you know, defensive make sure I tell I tell my clients, I looked at truth, always tends to come out in the courtroom, if the prosecutor does his or her job the way they're supposed to the judge does his job or her job the way they're supposed to. And the detectives do their job the way they're supposed to will lose every time. Are we if the factor the right now? I mean it's just that the, the only time that, that defense tends to Brill is, if someone jumps to the conclusion makes the wrong assumptions brings in shoddy evidence brings in shaky testimony. What's have is a lot, right? Whether it's a, a sex assault, or a drunk driving case or something in the middle. But, but that, that's, that's let me get off my soapbox that. But fourteen happy birthday today to Phil Mickelson and.

When me the food Sula was in school. Well, so like, of course, I just I know it would probably take me forever right now. The name fifty states I had to start doing. I'd have to make a list as I saw that. I know I wouldn't do it in a memorize them. Jackie Bill to do it from. Well, I think we all had to memorize them as part of our American history test or class. Yeah. Probably I had a drum map I like three dimensional geographic map of I think each state that sounds like a lot. Well, no, I didn't have to do that you had to or you wanted to. I think I had to I think I had done something I wasn't supposed to the punishment. Yeah. So my teacher, and I and I enjoy doing it. I I like this. Yeah. Yeah. Jack, take his do you? Remember, man. I think in eighth grade they take it don't they take it for they go to high school. So back then, but he he memorized the state's young age. He had this great with great puzzle. That was all the state pieces, and he would put that together and needs to be able to recite the state's backwards. Ooh stuff. How that's good. Yeah. He was really. Oh, no. What did you used to be able to do used to be able to say that when he was really little he could say the alphabet backwards really quickly. Nice which is not easy to do have them tried to do super California. Stuck ex-pm widow Shas backwards. I used to be able to do it backwards. Yeah. I when the movie first came out, I could do it. Do they sing it backwards in the movie? Yeah, they well. They actually say it backwards. And seems like the type of thing that if you heard it would be easier to do than definitely think about it. Yeah. Definitely. That sounds tough. So this Sunday right is no it's today today is Kentucky Derby, right? I is it today or Sunday. It says right here on the store fourth on the first Saturday of may each year ago Churchill Downs in Louisville Kentucky host the Kentucky Derby dubbed, the most exciting two minutes in sports. I Kentucky Derby was held in Churchill Downs. Open in in cripes. Eighteen something eighteen seventy five. Thank you. That's crazy. I was in the right century. And the tracks owners say it's the oldest continuously held sporting event in the United States. Here's which needs to know Churchill Downs was founded by Colonel Meriwether Lewis Clark. You know of Lewis and Clark. I didn't know that. Wow. The grandson of William and Clark of William Clark who is part of the Lewis expeditionary was relative. He wasn't the guy who took it is so interesting, so he was named after both of them. Yeah. Because Meriwether Lewis, so the mayor whether Lewis Clark grandson of William Clark. In eighteen seventy two at age twenty six young Clark travel to England and France were seeing the Epsom Derby horse race inspired him to create a similar horse race spectacle at home in America. According to the shirt till downs official website Clark, leased eighty acres of land outside Louisville from his uncles. John and Henry Churchill for whom the track is named track. Over in eighteen seventy five according to official history workers added stately twin spires to the track in eighteen ninety five which became symbolic of Churchill Downs. And the Kentucky Derby, the track didn't turn a profit until nineteen three in one thousand nine hundred and one of the first ever flights in Kentucky took off from the infield of Churchill Downs. After aviator Glenn Curtiss assembled an airplane on the infield of the track is named a national historic landmark in nineteen Eighty-six in two thousand nine hundred till downs held its first night race. I didn't know that. Twenty fifteen the track hit its all time attendance record one hundred seventy thousand five hundred thirteen packing into the grandstands infield. And so people that is a lot of people. So I've I've got a friend who's from elizabethtown Kentucky, and he's out there. Visiting family this weekend. His brothers are there. And I know he's gone to the derby before says SM to there, you go into the derby says, well, no it's been raining so much that we're thinking we're not going to go. We're gonna go to Kane Lynn, which as I understand it is like another track somewhere out there, and they have for the derby, a big party with bands and big screens as he's going to watch it. There have been partying suppose like fifty thousand people go to that proof. So a little a little tidbit that I came up with. With Pete and chain who were on for Patti the oldest jockey? To ride in the Kentucky Derby, okay? Is writing today. I am going to get an age. Go ahead because the jockeys are generally smaller in stature, right? I'm going to say they can be much older cameras say the oldest. So that today we'll set a record for the oldest derby jockey ever is telling me I'm going to say he is seventy three years old. Not quite missed it by the that much. Okay. Seventy two no older. No, seventy one you're way off. Oh, you made it sound like I was close while how old's the oldest Jackie going to be fifty eight. That's the oldest one ever. Yep. The oldest before him was fifty seven who was the incredibly famous the only I think famous jockey whose name I've ever known. I just read his name far hours ago. And rick. Schumaker? Bill shoemaker Bill shoemaker. Thank you. I know Rick trimming, it was Bill shoemaker, and he is the oldest winner of the derby. And how old was he when fifty four okay. I don't know. I I would have thought they would racing older than that. And guess what? I won't be watching no Kentucky Derby. Nope. As you won't be Homer because you have no interest. I've no interest. Be watching golf if I'm awake. Well, there you go. I would be interested in going once I've been to Arlington park, and it's a lot of fun. And we keep meaning to go back and go spend a day. It is fun. You know, by my boys are into all sorts of sports where they're running ads like crazy for the Kentucky Derby, and they're like why it's two minutes. What why we know? There's races all day long. You can bet on the races really a lot of fun. But they just can't get over this. Why would I go to something for two minutes, which when you say like that does make sense? It is hard to fathom. So big race this weekend. And I saw a story earlier this week. It was in I flew a couple of times this week. And there was a story in the United. I think in the United Airlines magazine about how how much money those the horses that are bred because they've won make and it's insane amounts of money. And how. I think of three of the horses in the derby today, they're they're all related in some way, shape or form because so many of these star horses were you know, you the stud of some other horses the same. That's you know, going around making all these other horses. Once there's a champion. They want to read that champion. And so a lot of these sources are going to be related to each other in the race today. Right. So that's I'm not related to any. I'm that's why I'm not sure. Positive. How much is four. Did you try turning on the stream? Little wine soft music. She wanted nothing to do with me. Take a quick break. And then the latest story they came out this week in the college admission scandal this just gets crazier and crazier. We'll talk about that next seven twenty WGN..

"Was magic it was a magic airplane. Can you tell us a little bit about about how you sort of check yourself out to defy that aircraft? Because it's you know, the controls are are, I guess maybe more analogous to a typical classics fixed wing airplane, though, not the same as certainly than helicopter. But you didn't have any gyro time. At least when you first set out to do this. If I remember, right. Well, yeah. No. You know, I didn't I went to Alabama to a guy named dolphin Fritz down in Alabama who had a flying school for gyro plane gyro copters, the modern gyro copters. And so I went down there and got my rating. But of course, it's very different animal from a modern gyro copter to the Pitcairn auto gyro. And so I I got the rating but a little bit of it did carry over. But not a lot of it. And I always tell people Johnny Miller, of course, everybody knows the famous jarrow pilot, Johnny Miller used to come to Oshkosh in as bonanza, and he died less than a year before we flew. Before we test flew the PA eighteen in Ohio. And then of course, Steve Pitcairn who was very involved with the also he died within less less than a year before we flew it. And so I told people after I flew it. Then I knew all the questions, and there was nobody to ask them to anymore. Is doing that, you know, but but we had read stuff, and we learned the hard way. Sometimes we read original accounts of things and kind of figured stuff out. And and say we learned the hard way, the the first taxi tests that we did we had read that the rotor blades were more stable if they returning than if they were stationary. And so we I unlocked the rotor blades and had them turning. But it turned out that they need to be turning at least sixty five RPM to really be stable. We had a little bit of a windblown. We got rotor flap and the and the rotor actually struck the top of the tail and so that was two thousand eighteen that set us back a year from going to Oshkosh. We ended up having to take that we took the rotor blades off and had to repair them. And and check them out and repair the top of the fin and rudder and stuff. So that was one of the hard lessons learned, but you know, eventually, we kinda got it figured out. And it was it was quite a moment. It was at new Carlisle Ohio, which is north of Dayton. It's about two thousand feet twenty one hundred foot they have a grass runway in a paved runway. And at to go out at the end of the runway on the first day that we fluid and open the throttle with the idea of flying. You know, it was quite a moment. I it's I told people it was like it was like a prehistoric pterodactyl flew down and grabbed you took off with you. You know, a lot of crazy. Lot of crazy flapping hap happened in over your head. And you weren't really sure we'll. But an and it didn't have the takeoff performance that I kind of expected from watching miss champion miss champion, of course, with three hundred dollars power really leaps off the ground this one with one hundred one hundred sixty horse power. It didn't really leap off the ground, and we had a prop with a little bit too much pitch. We figured out later, and I was I was actually just about to abort the takeoff when it broke ground. And so, you know, then you're in the air, and you know, you run out of runway you're kinda committed you gotta keep going. But it really was it really was a fantastic moment when it finally flew and it actually flew nice. When it got up to cruise speed man, the ailerons worked really well, and it actually was a fairly nice flying airplane up in the air. But again, I told people everything above ten feet was easy. But below ten feet was where the critical point was when you were descending. When you got to ten feet coming into land you were committed and you better be going straight. If you're going crooked and landed sideways, you're liable to tip it over. But so you really had to have everything set up. You couldn't have much of a crosswind. We really. Limited to less than five mile an hour crosswind probably with it. And so that took a lot of planning to fly from Ohio to Oshkosh took a lot of planning and trying to find airpl- airports with grass runways, and if possible multiple runways, and so it was you know, you really you didn't wanna hurt it. He really didn't want hurt it if something wrong it wasn't in a nineteen thirty two you could call the factory and say send us for rotor blades. And of course, if we had a problem it was a year and a half to rebuild them. But but great great I had about I got about fifty hours in it. And of course, it was sold to current weeks. And it's down there now, and I checked him out in and he fluid better than I did. But I don't think they flown it since it went out of annual eventually, and he's got so many projects going on. I don't think he's flown at since. But yet that was that was probably the pinnacle of my flying experiences when I kick now I mean, obviously now we're talking about vintage aircraft that I just wanted to to ask you, you know, hey, what drew you to liking in wanting to fly vintage airplanes. And you know, why do you think it's important to keep them? Preserved and flying. Well, of course, my dad, really drew me to it. Although it's interesting. My brother wasn't really into airplanes until he was thirty. But I just from a from a very young age that was really all I wanted to do was was fly older planes, and you know, the technology history technology has its own fascination of going from here to there. And of course, the twentieth century is amazing going from bicycles to the moon, basically. And of course, the characters, you know, the people that were involved the Wright brothers, and Glenn Curtiss and the rower one pilots Charles Lindbergh, and I just I've always been fascinated with history and to be able to to be able to read a book say about an airmail pilot flying in the winter across Pennsylvania in an open cockpit and having done it, you know. And I so this is what it felt like, you know, it's it's bets that's part of the interest of it to to kind of be able to free those accounts and have a greater understanding of what those people were talking about that's part of the fascination with it and the the value of it. Is a good question. And I'm sure you guys have heard the debate about the worries about history in general in historical things and anti cars anti-europe lanes that it seems to be an aging population. There seems to be less and less young people involved. And so you you kind of wonder what what is what's the value of it? And you know, I some of the value of it is when when I get on an airliner I mean, I can go down to Dulles airport and get on an airliner in five hours for now being Los Angeles. And that's amazing to me because I know I've done it in a in a seventy year old airplane to and I know how long it took back then. And so to be able to compare give perspective perspective is something that that, you know, might some people would say is lacking in our society in general, I suppose, that's the that's the importance of history as it gives you perspective. And makes you pre sheet what you have. And you know, just give you a better world view. I think to to be able to experience some of the stuff and most of pilots again, you'll agree with me. And you know, these people. Well, and most pilots like to share it. Everybody loves given airplane rides and telling stories about the airplanes, and the people and stuff, and so you know, that has its value to of course, absolutely. Speaking of stories that gives us a nice little say way here a unit. I I met I cross paths. After after I saw film called barnstorming and then had gotten befriends with with Paul Glenn show. One of the one of the directors. Can you talk a little bit about how you got involved in that or that film or how that film came about? That you know, I I recently listened to your movie episode. This is number two movie episode talking about WALDO pepper, and of course, at Ryan Beck growing up, and and most of the crowds I've ever been involved with you can quote WALDO pepper endlessly, you can sit around for an hour and WALDO pepper votes and everybody knows and trivia about WALDO pepper, and and so we'd like to think we're WALDO peppers of today, and my friend Frank have league and Ohio is a big Pete and Paul guy, and we fly around together and do stuff and we liked to land and farmers fields. Which? My Taylor Crespin and a lot of displaying old hayfield out on Ohio, and Indiana, and Illinois and all over the place, and the people that I have now the same thing. And if we're flying along, and we see a nice, look and hayfield we're liable to go land in just for the fun of it. So we were coming back actually coming back from Oshkosh in nineteen ninety nine. We'd had the feet polls up there for the would have been the seventieth anniversary of the team Paul. In fact, this year's the ninetieth were were hoping to have a big crowd of Pete balls at the air venture this year. Also, but a ninety nine was the seventieth, and we were coming back, and we saw this nice looking hayfield and Franken I landed there, another friend of ours will graph was with us, and he landed there, also and the farmers came out and a couple of pickup trucks came into the field and the farmer came along. And we were a little worried that he might not like it we'd landed in his field. And so I told him the engine. It was overeating. I lied a little bit told him the end was overheating. But anyway, we got talking and Frank took a couple of kids for rides. And Matt the farmer said boy, you guys should come back next year. We'll do. Little cookout for you. And this year will be the twentieth year. We've been going back the last few years people from all over the the surrounding area. Come and bring food and stuff we've had close to two hundred people there, the the farmers and the people that live in town come out and have like say, a big kind of a potluck dinner. And we do a little aerial display for me do like a toilet paper cod and do a balloon busting and flour bombing and stuff for a little flying activity and give rides we had to new standards there one year giving rides and just going around. It was it was like nineteen thirty five. It was in a in a real farmers field and to new standards in the line of people, and they people loading them in the airplanes. And then they go twice around the patch and land, and I mean, it was it was another. It was a time warp. It was just like being in nineteen thirty five. It was really cool.

"Well, talking about speed management. I guess we need to talk about the world speed record. Tell us how that came about. Again, probably got sparked by finding that trophy in my parents attic, but it was kind of a funny funny scenario rod Lewis who owns rare berry in several other Warbirds has a fantastic collection out of San San Antonio after he had a flying at his ranch every year, and after I won in two thousand nine he invited me out to the ranch, and hey, would you mind giving a talk John pennies year, given a talk on on rare. Bear would know talk about strata. Sure and John give give talks about twenty minutes talked about three kilometers record which were held. And I got up there. And Dr Sam sorta stuff, and you gentlemen, and the audience that night is by the name of Joe Clark who owns a company called aviation partners. And he simply just ask the question. You know, why don't you done that with Strega gopher speed record? And well, it's like it's a big cost. There's not prize monies. You know that sort of thing, and he said, well, I'd be interested in teaming up with you to do something. So here's my card. Let's stay in touch. So that was kind of the initial going from just a random dream to. Maybe this be a goal and evolved over time with that it didn't work out with Strega for several reasons which are fine because we don't plan on doing that in two thousand twelve thousand thirteen something like that in that in that fell through but kind of get the contact relationship opened with Joe and Bob button who owned voodoo was real excited about it. Right. From the first year day put put the put the reins on, you know, get up to speed. I I've Reno before we can, you know, attempt a world speed record. So that again was nev Lucien of the airport. But. It really was a dream come true to be able to try and do that or to go for that record. It's so different from flying Reno. Heard that from other guys that have done before. But it really is all different environment. You know, your folks on your ultimate or you never looked timid Reno. So lots of different things in the environment. It is nice though, what we did. It was a private ranch up in Idaho. And the valley was forty miles long by ten miles wide. There's not another soul inside out there. So it was really nice to have you know, all the airspace to yourself. Hopefully, we'll get a chance to take another crack at it again. I remember I can tell you where I was. It was interesting because it was the same weekend. They unveiled dotty may the p forty seven and I was at Napa Napa for that. And it was cool because like news would keep breaking in there. Like, they're, you know, they're they're they're taxing out now and stuff like that. It was just it was really there was a real sense of excitement even there. Yeah. Which I haven't I haven't always seen aviation where people were they were amped up kind of keeping the finger on the pulse, and it's funny traveling around now, how many people, you know, watching that when it was live on this. And that and it's funny because I think about this. It's an obscure record. No, unless you know, what it is. It's just something else. But I think as far as you know, especially aviation history Jimmy doodle set that record. No, right brothers. That record Glenn Curtiss. You know? So I think it's that one record in scope of aviation history. That's always kinda stood the test of time where are the records are constantly being set. You can follow that record back today. One. That's exciting. When you go for a record attempt like that thinking about some of the other variables you have to control for like, what kind of weather. Are you looking for for something like that? Is there a particular day pressure wise things like that for absolutely a good question? And it kind of baffles a lot of people with the Mustang. We're looking for a really hot day, and you know, engine horsepower you want cold day dense air, but like the Mustang. We're making hopefully about thirty four hundred horsepower when we attempt to the record ended up being about three thousand horsepower. But. To say that horsepower Ltd's not accurate. But if you look at an airplane, rare bear, you know, they're getting forty four hundred horsepower out of it with nitrous oxide when they did the record, you know, they don't run that anymore. But they want to see a colder day because they're more dependent on horsepower. The forty four hundred horsepower to pull you know, the airframe around whereas the Mustangs got obviously not forty four hundred horsepower. But it's got a real clean airframe behind it. So for a clean air the namic air for to go through the air quickly. We want thin, you know, hot air. So we're looking for a hot temperature. We won't be at high elevation airs thinner already you get a higher true airspeed. So unfortunately, actually had great temperatures today. We did it was about ninety four ninety five degrees working out to density altitude about thirteen thousand feet, but wildfires in the Pacific northwest verd- pretty strong at the time in although it's funny. Looking back at these videos that come out now, and it's like visibility doesn't look that bad. But and it was about four miles visibility. And when you're diving in on this course, and you can't see eight miles ahead of you. You know, but you're warp speed. It's a kind of like a hold on. What am I gonna pop into this visibility was so hot days, you know, high altitude? That's what we're looking for.
"glenn curtiss" Discussed on 850 WFTL
"Florida's talk and entertainment networks, I'm Regan. Smith, Michael Yaffe, very special guests this day is historian and author William Hazel grove is brand new book. Right brothers wrong story. A Wilbur Wright solve the problem of man flight from premier Theus books is available at all the fine bookstores around Florida and places like Amazon dot com, and I'm Bill. Thank you so much for being with us this day. We know that you have a very busy schedule. And I wanna talk for a couple of minutes about those that that period one thousand nine hundred nineteen three the Wright brothers went through a from Mendez argument and alone term fight with people like Glenn Curtiss. And the amazing thing is the. We think it's revered today. Anyways, the Smithsonian institute, I should be, you know, but they got into a horrible fight with the Smithsonian, and I want to share that story. Sure, Glenn Curtiss was one of those mechanics that we have some the early twentieth century. Remember that's a mechanical age we live in a digitally Curtis. Crave. Guy starts building Motors makes first motorcycle day starts going Motors for airplanes. He approaches the Wright brothers and Curtiss believe that you know, when you discover something it's there for the taking. Okay. The Wright brothers they flew. They get a patent saying nobody else can find less. You pay us to use our control system Curtis is very upset about this because he can't manufacture airplanes. And so he has to try and break their patent, Kanye Langley. Samuel Langley's secretary of the Smithsonian. He was supposed to be the guy who saw flight, but he gets fifty thousand dollars from the government and put makes a plane that goes right down, the Potomac Salinas disgraced Langley's disgrace. Okay. But Glenn Curtiss says, you know, what I think that plane could have flown that plane from nineteen zero three secretary, Elaine. He takes it changes it and makes it fly. Again. This is Sonia. Looking for a way to get rid of this black Mark on the reputation publishes, the findings and says, you know, what the Wright brothers me of phone I but secretary Langley invented the first plane, and they put it in. This was Sonian with this big black saying this well, oracle Wilbur status point Orville furious. He says you retract that you retract or I'm going to send the nineteen or three fire away, which is an Athenian. Once he says, I'm going to send it away. They call his bluff and in nineteen twenty eight he packed up the nineteen or three fire fluent Kittyhawk indicates on a scheme or it goes over to London to the Britain science London science museum, boy stays for twenty years, and this controversy rages during this time getting Charles Lindbergh involved, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who plead with horrible. To bring the plane back. Hey, says absolutely not it goes on so long that the battle of Britain breaks out the plane is in London. Now, here's the great irony of this the liftoff of the German air forces. Flying overhead bombing the nineteen zero three flyer with a very technology the Wright brothers developed, so they have to ship the plane out of Britain. And they put it out in town called Covington underground to ride out the war. So was this Smithsonian wrong? Then about what they put on that being the first plane, invented absolutely absolutely Sonian was trying to rehabilitate their reputation, and they saw this in Glenn Curtiss was trying to break the patent by say look somebody else. Did it first? So come lose. Right. But they weren't we hear now a lot of the sunny and and Curtis, and so the, and this is where it gets really interesting. They they're like, you know, you must retract you have to say that you lied, and it's this Sony and says. Now, remember, our friend Fred Kelly biographer well in nineteen forty two this. This thing is at an impasse, and Fred Kelly or won't let him publish the book. Fred Kelly says to himself, you know, what I'm gonna get horrible right in my dad, and I'm gonna solve this dispute that FDR and Lindberg and nobody can solve. And so she goes to guy named Abbott. Who's now the new secretary of Smithsonian? He says, you know, what I'm going to publish a book in my book. I'm going to say all the crappy things that have happened. What you've done, and and everybody's gonna Sony and backs off publishes a retraction saying, you know, what the plane really then fly and the right been event the first plane, and then Orval writes a letter that goes into his well that says the plane can go to Sonian, but if you ever say anybody else, flew, I we're gonna take it back so Dizon and forty eight and then it's active. That that the plane finally comes back to the United States and its push Charles Lindbergh's spirit, Saint Louis back and put it in the nineteen or three flyer. It takes years of death and arguing an aging for this finally to get resolved at this gusts museum that we still reveres the I just I guess I'm having a hard time getting my mind around don't eat. Really? So the the legacy of all this. Did Wilbur understand that he had finally won at the time? He died. Because I believe it or not after they flew in nineteen. Oh, three. Nobody believed him. You know, the Dayton newspapers said basically, oh, he flew for fifty nine seconds for fifty nine minutes. It'd be a story. But the fact is nobody believed him it gets even worse. We can't get a patent approved. So he goes totally secret. He won't let anybody see him fly. You think somebody's gonna take his technology? So then the newspaper start, you know, printing, stuff like fliers or liars. And you know, it all the way it goes all the way up to about nineteen eight in France. We're finally the French French by his airplane, the military does. And then he flies figure eights and people all over Europe, you're astounded, and then he becomes a world celebrity. So and by the way, everybody recognizes Wilbert this point as the man who invented flight, but when he dies in nineteen twelve from typhoid fever. Unfortunately, he's in the thick of lawsuits with Glenn Curtiss who's been taking their technology, and he's been worn down by the real money doesn't come until much later gets millions of dollars for this in the nineteen forties. So really Wilbur sheet. It's sort of a tragic story. He died fighting legal battles to try and protect us invention. So isn't it true? That in the nineteen twenties in the nineteen thirties that Europe was starting to sort of head of America when it comes to aviation inventions in do you think that had something to do with the fact that Wilbur died absolutely will what have people in aviation? We're very mad at the right brothers because they got what was called a pioneer patents. So it's the triad system will control aileron rudder elevator. And it said anybody who flies has to pay them. So what did they do it push down on Aviation Development in the United States so much? So that when World War One broke out we were behind everybody, and it was all because of this patent because a lot of people one developed planes because they thought they had to pay the Wright brothers. Eventually we'll step in and changes and create a patent pool where people can use the technology, but this really slowed down aviation the United States and during that time, you know, Europe went went on, you know, the the the history of the flyers interesting because. In nineteen fourteen. It was almost a story with a big flood in Dayton where it came rushing in the water came rushing in and the flyer was in a shed behind the bike shop, and it was under water. You know, Orville just manage to pull it out and dry it out and the nicotine, but it was almost lost. So that goes a long way towards explaining how it was that your gut so far ahead of us in Aviation Development during those years. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Because they had no impediment impediments rather to you know, developing the net next technology and the rights, by the way, they were very good. Rather win was very good at developing that initial technology, but they he wasn't so good at refining that so their planes were known as something hard to fly. And it's one gentleman said, you know, flying in those days, so it's like flying with an elephant on your back. You had no power. They were unstable, and you know, very difficult to fly. So what is the main thing that you want people who are reading this book to take away from it? Well, I think two things one I wanted to make these people human, you know, there's a lot in the book that we haven't talked about one is it did have a girlfriend that was eventually discovered by a gentleman thirties when he walked in on him and his secretary either Edith Benham, but either back rather. He knows I guess is that you know, that people big inventions being moments, generally, speaking, do not happen with pain. So people it is the individual who has to make these discoveries. It's the individually on pen like Ford who who push the technology had an push human improvement. They're the ones that you generally making these breakthroughs, and so it's not so strange that I discovered Wilbur Wright was really the person who did it because it takes your vision. He also had that God given ability to take engineering, you know, what was going on at the time. And this involves with something called wing warping. You know, he really is the crux of all planes that flies where the wings actually flex. We. Call him ailerons today. That's a slap on the wings. Is he on jetliners Wilbert came up with that he came up with the fact that if you flex the wing one way and the other way that the plane would turn and they'll, unfortunately, we're going to have to leave that story. There. But we want to say again, thank you for being with us this day, the book is right brothers wrong story, a Wilbur Wright, solve the problem of manned flight, William Hazel grove is author Prometheus books the publisher it's available at all the fine bookstores around fraud and places like Amazon dot com, and it proves once again history may not be exactly as we think it is if somebody will bother to go out there and do some digging and look for the truth in a hard way. Well, you're listening to the Florida roundtable, I'm Reagan Smith and on Mike laughing, and we'll continue our conversations in a moment an opioid overdose..

Welcome the WABC Glenn Curtiss. I got a couple of points. Maybe this whole thing was a setup by the feds and the democratic politicians calling himself said that Trump was not a seasoned politician. And that's why he got a call me was able to get away with a lot of things that he did call me came out with the second time about Hillary Clinton. They said because the lower guys and FBI we're going to say say stuff about him knowing stuff, and he kept it a secret also to maybe call me and rod Rosenstein had it set up because Rosenstein, gave him a letter that said, it's okay to fire. Call me. Now, they set them up the fire. Call me he fires, homey. You know that void. Glenn? That's quite conspiratorial. There are a lot of pigs almost like Gallegos. Yeah. Connect the dots. All right. We're not going to rule it out. I mean, you can't rule anything. Right. We gotta wait the Russia. Will we will find out if it is indeed a witch hunt? Let's go to Larry in Brooklyn. Welcome the Kurdish and Juliet Huddy on WABC. Yeah. Could if you just want to say, you know, when Juliet starts mentioning a white man in play the race card shows how desperate leftists thought. Okay. First of all, I'm not a leftist the race. You don't know what you're talking about? Because I'm not a leftist. I'm actually an independent I'm right in the middle. And by the way. Give the details. Larry because the recent statistics from the FBI themselves show that it remains far less diverse than the population that it's drawn from sixty seven percent of the agents are white black agents make up a lower percentage of special agents than they did when there was a discrimination lawsuit filed back in the nineties down from five point three percent to four point four percent. I can go on and on and on you, Iran. And I'm giving you facts, I'm not giving you opinion. This is fact, right? But but the fact is right. It was about a black agency. You would never say something. What are you talking about giving you statistics from the agency that did it? I hate I don't like Trump. It has nothing to do you talking about? I give you a distinct definitive examples of exactly what is going on with the FBI how everybody in the FBI. Roma. But we we we have a movie we can rely on. What who is it that went to FBI headquarters to go through training Jodie Foster? Right. Very good. My god. That's true. Right after that. All of a sudden she revived the career of who in the puppet movie. The puppet. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Virulent anti Semite. You know, that everybody said could should not have a place in Hollywood, forty shed come on. I'm talking about really survived. The biggest box. Oh of all time. Wait, not peewee Herman though.

I have no idea what you're talking. I I don't see movies though. There is a problem. See the guy just say one thing about that last call. That's the problem. You just assume that because I don't like Trump that I'm some left-winger. It's just not true. And it's just it's ignorance you complete ignorance. I'll tell you need to I see Jodi foster. She became FBI is this movie that you're talking I have no option when she tried to revive his career after his anti-semitic. Oh, the hand puppet. I don't know. She produced some somebody new.

"Family injury family drama. Really? How let's. Where to start with this? So you know, that we we ended up asking what are three characteristics of this person. We've never done a tandem before. But how do you want to do you want to focus on both of them? Or do we want to talk about Wilbur mostly? Let's start. We can start Wilbur Wilbur was that they had that survive genius that you required. And this is what I read in college. But at the end of it, I I was just cold because I'm from Virginia. I went to Kitty Hawk as a kid all the time. Like, there's nothing here that helped me how they did this thing. But when I heard the research, I found out that this guy after this sounds crazy. But he murderer basically shattered his jaw who would later be electrocuted. Eighteen ninety six he went into it three year depression, where he didn't leave the house when he came out. He was obsessed with light that became his mission. Okay. Here's a man who had this incredible capability. So the three things would be genius tenacity grit because this is a guy who dropped out of high school had no training at all. The biggest thing has had a bike shop with his brother, and he tells his father who's a Bishop, and there's a whole story there. I'm going to Kitty Hawk to invent flying. And be like you're saying we're gonna go flying saucer. So. So many questions, let's do the job raking thing. So why why is that why was that moment important as life and the three years he didn't leave his house because name was Oliver crook hall, and what happened was he shattered his John this time. There was a Komor biddies one thing would lead to another huge on his way to Yale. He was he was going to go to Yale. He was a great student when this happened he became ill. You went into the dark. Knight, fellow his mother was dying. He ended up carrying herpes for you. So Limbaugh who called the Byrd man into. He was over in Germany flying jumping outside the close with these wings horseback. One percents to read about him and becomes staff a guy who's almost like an artist without a mission. He writes, his father. I don't like business. I like the light to the mind as much more business orientated. Hurt any grounds onto this thing? And he never left to go. Wow. Could make the argument that if he just went to yell and did that thing and did the trajectory that he was on that he never would have found that passion. Absolutely. Because it allows people I believe people have incredible talents. But it's it's who follows that. And you know, there was no way for him to follow anyone's because flight was jeering Beeri at the beginning. This is very interesting to see had a patent after he flew in nineteen three for the control system. Not the plane guys jumping off cliffs and with the crazy things that they were actually fine. But whatever control, you know, he he went and he spoke to the western society of engineers in Chicago. And what he did he got the piece of paper because he wanted to demonstrate and this is a very radical theory at the time that flight was basically unstable secretary Langley for the Smithsonian, which is a whole nother story to Langley believe flight with like a locomotive you just put a big engine on it point the plane to the sky lie straight over said, no flight inherently unstable. So he came up with the ailerons elevator and rudder the fused. Every airline today. So let's be the genius. So well, all three of these. But one thing that struck me when I might limited knowledge of these gentlemen is how hard they studied flight and as much as they could. And how how they observed the birds for you can tell me more hours. Right. They were just watch birds. So they had to really work at their genius. Right. Exactly. Exactly. And so so we're we're starting to study these briefing Kitty Hawk and before that he came out with the theory he took in inner tube box. Any twist at the end of it. And we came up with was called wing warping. Did he he he saw how birds turn would just flex dancer their wings? So I am self and went outside of Dayton Ohio with testing to and he worked wings of this flying wing basically in made the turn. Well, this would be ailerons which you know, you look out your window of an airliner, and you see those big flat turning down those are an around. So he came up with this theory before anybody else, did, you know, it a very radical theory. Because everybody else believe he just sort of ships your way, and it'll turn. But yeah. So this is this is the beginning of flight, and he got that from watching birds. Yeah. He absolutely. It would study the birds how much how often do you watch can you quantify how much and how often for how many years you watched birds? Basically it was years. He would go out there. And here's another thing too. When he got sick, his father Bishop melt, who by the way, it was a very overbearing autocrat, and who started this whole thing that everybody's equal. And that's why the world beliefs. They both Bennett he he took out of his library. All these books on animal flight, his father happened to have anyone out, and he would just observe the birds for our years of doing this and writing sketches and try and see because he didn't believe that. It was power. He has another radical theory key believe that if you built the correct wing you could fly forever without an engine. What do we call it gliding today on thermals? That's hawks. Do really cool. Can you give us an example of his tenacity? Right brass. I'm talking about prepared just tuning in nineteen Ninety-two. He's he's keeps trying to fly. And what happens is every time. He turns the plane turns down just like an spiral every time. And by the way, he doesn't fly until nineteen two. He's even baldness. So what does he do? He goes back, and he builds a wind tunnel because here's here's where the genius. Key finally believed that all the data. Everybody's been working with is totally wrong, absolutely wrong. Start entirely over. In other words, he has to make up all the list. And this is this is something nobody done before he goes over his bicycle shop with his wind tunnel. And he's little delivers a metal. He he's pioneering here what will stand for all time. It's the lift coefficient planes us today. What year did he do this nineteen ninety two until he ended up flying in nineteen? Oh, three years ahead of years of study. And before they even had had it off to Kittyhawk. Absolutely. Here's another thing to one reason people believe that Wilbur and Orville equal because on the day of flight December seventeen I flew that day but on December fourteenth, Wilbur, flew the plane went up and down. It was horrible turn only went up for twelve seconds. It's like a controlled crash, but there's a camera there. They took the famous photo that you always see I that photo went around the world. But the next flight was Wilbur he flew full full minute. Nobody even knew about this. That was the first flight control flight because Orville isn't that plane every oh these guys are equal simply not true. And can you give us an example of the grit of Wilbur? Would be the fact that when he after he flew, okay. I'm pretty flu. He decided to monetize this this plane. But here's the thing. Nobody would give a patent. Nobody. Nobody believed him. Nobody believed that he flew. He didn't get a patent till three years later. Send it in in the patent office kept saying this won't work this this, you know, what it did. Nobody believed in the newspapers were putting headlines like fliers or liars, you know, they just simply didn't believe him. And here's another thing complicated. He believed he was so far ahead of everybody. He went secret 'cause his whole thing. He's afraid people would steal technology. So he wouldn't show anybody that he could fly to so. But what are you doing? She kept improving the plane improving the plane. Finally, it's actually in France, and he flies and everybody sees this guy doing savior eight over in France. And they can't believe any becomes your worldwide celebrity, and that that was well that wasn't Orval warmer that did was he able to profit off of it eventually eventually, but he dies in nineteen twelve from typhoid fever. It's his brother Orville who gets the million later nineteen forty two. And here's another thing too. I'm sarah. Orville gets in a huge fight. Only American actually wrote a huge articles when I sent you. And the fight. It comes over who really invented the plane because they're saying secretary Langley who also NITEL three really his plane could have flown. Orville gets mad and ships away in nineteen. Oh, three flyer. Nineteen twenty eight it doesn't come back through the United States for twenty years. It stays in Britain all the way through World War Two everybody. Charles, Lindbergh, FDR all plead with them to bring it back to America. He says no not until the Smithsonian says we were and it took twenty years did what's what's the case at Langley has it. He did it first language. You got fifty thousand dollars from the government to build a plane, and his theory was really big engine on this thing it's gonna fly. So he put a fifty Marcus. Time flies off this plane in the Potomac the thing doesn't nosed I write down. Right. He's disgraced this is Sony disgrace. All right. There's another guy named Glenn Curtiss Glenn Curtiss hates the rights because they have a patent on the control system. He comes up with an idea, I'll break their patent by make Langley's planes fly. So he really works. It flies at the Smithsonian comes up. Langley could have fought them the launching problem. And they stand by it. But it never did. In every. But yeah. So so this whole this whole fabrication becomes this major major controversy and oracle says fine. He puts it on a steamer that nineteen Ninety-three fire ships to Britain. Where again, it stays like their war to almost get blown up by the Nazis found in Britain. It doesn't come back till nineteen forty eight. The book is called Wright brothers wrong story. How Wilbur Wright solve the problem man flight, William I got a.
