"After the war he stays and he decides to keep learning so he goes to the test pilot school in nineteen forty six and he was chosen. What was called the x one program in the summer of nineteen forty seven and is very funny until a little bit about the us air force. The modern world the commercial test pilots. Who were being paid to do this for living one a lot more money and they didn't wanna fly these very new very different aircraft residual aircraft designed to break the sound barrier. They were designed to do things no one had ever done before. And that's why the recall the next program for experiment and so the pilots refused without higher. Pay so the report said fine and brought in you know regular air force officers and get anything extra and so here. You have a chance to do something really cool and you might listen this a little bit about yeager description of how in the excellent program. He said this when he was david letterman. Back in one thousand nine hundred. Should i was a fighter. Pilot war to and mustangs. I came back in nineteen forty-five on the war and was assigned to write feel as a maintenance officer in the fighter test section. And i went through the test pilot school in nineteen forty six and then i was selected for the x one program in summer. Forty-seven after the bell test pilot gotten into a hassle on bonus money and and probably because of my maintenance background and and the air shows. I used to put on october fourteenth nineteen forty seven. He flew the accessible one pants. The somber now this at the time was enormous impact worldwide news. He became the world's first supersonic pilot level. Flight would made it kind of tells you about the aigars toughness and his dedication is that a couple of days before was supposed to fly. He knocked off his horse and he broke several ribs and in fact he was so much pain first of all he went to civilian doctor not the military doctor because he knew the military doctor would grounded and not allowing the guy and he literally couldn't reach up and close the door once he got on the airplane so a friend of his rig broomstick so that when he got in he could use the broom. Stick to close the door because his friend understood how much he was in. So imagine this moment and tells you when i talk. About american exceptionalism toughness the determination the continuous pursuit of excellence and listen the chuck's own description. This which i think is just astonishing and just so happens That particular flight. I think was on a tuesday On the weekends there at ed miracle it was called. Then we used to go out to pancho barnes or sort of. She had a rodeo grounds in a swimming pool. And motel and restaurant go out there and you unwinding not glenis. After i think on on a saturday night and we loved it right horses show. We went out after dinner and riding horses chasing each other coming back. Somebody close the gate and dark. I appreciate the fence. Flip me and i broke a couple of ribs and that was on saturday. Nights sunday i've mope around and then monday i had to go into the basin and i went to a local doctor there and should we've got to crack to busted ribs. I'll tape you up and and it really didn't make that much difference in flying the airplane but god it's not strenuous other than handling it with your your hands and feet on rudder pedals and control surfaces and loading pressure domes and turning switches on things like that so mountie problem was a painful to get into the airplane because you had to come down ladder and go through a little hold on the right side but dan. The hard part was closing. The door wants to jack. Ridley came down. The ladder held the door against right side. Had a lever was really tough to any took. Both all you can do it and i couldn't handle it with my right side because handled show. He made me a about ten inch. Long broom stick could stick in the in the door handle gave me that mechanical advantage. And that's the way we saw the problem. So that really didn't make much difference to show you the sort of instinctive adventurous spirit. That yeager had having an hour already crew that he could fly faster than sound and nineteen forty eight he becomes the first american to make a ground take off in a rocket powered aircraft again. Another experimental program. It's just remarkable to watch what they were doing and how they were doing. The navy also had a program and was called the skyrocket the five hundred eighty two and its pilot. Scott crossfield became the first team to reach twice the speed. No yet you're already become famous reaching speed of sound and he'd gone up to about a thousand miles an hour but they actually are at that point ridley and yeager decided they would beat crossfield speed record in the series of test flights that they dubbed operation. Nocco week nominated. They beat crossfield but they did it in time to spoil a celebration plan for the fiftieth anniversary of it. Which cross what was to be called the fastest man alive while the decided no he was the fastest man alive however in december of that year he almost had a disaster. He was flying the bell x one a sixteen hundred fifty miles per hour and became the first man to fly two and a half times the speed of sound. But at about mach two point four at eighty thousand feet planes spun out of control and was coming down rapidly spinning all three axes. He dropped fifty one thousand feet and fifty one seconds virtual. It's good thing. He was up at eighty thousand feet with start when he dropped. Think about this thousand feet.

We were in occupied france. They were quite a few germans around. Obviously you've got to hide or they'll pick you up. And as i recall i did. I got into the woods.

A hotel gave us a money. And and we just bummed around there for about a month and finally During that period of time the may nineteen forty four. The we were beginning to help spain. Who is running out of gasoline. Because he didn't have any petroleum products and we were then begin trading gasoline for american pilots. That were in spain.

Spanish took us down to gibraltar and turn to show with the british on the allen of gibraltar. and then finally the british were f- flying airplanes from gibraltar round over rounded tip of spain and portugal. Up england and and i bummed a ride up on airplanes and then went back to my squadron now when he returns england having gotten through spain on a program that was really a constant line of pilot should shut down getting back to the army did not want let him go back into combat because when he escaped in france he would have learned things about the french resistance and they didn't want to risk him getting shot down and tortured by the germans and giving up important information about the resistance but younger was determined to get back into combat. So take him out in front of his a bomber pilot after fred glove. Nothing about this here. These two guys appealing directly to the supreme allied commander generalizing hauer and they argued that the allies have abated. France resistance movements now the open. If they were shut down a little or nothing they could do to reveal the enemy and so he goes back into combat with the personal intervention of is now by the way had to appeal back to marshall in washington to make sure that he had the authority to waive the requirement so i explained requirement figures backside and on the twelfth october nineteen forty four. He actually the first prime has group to make ac entity year by shooting on five aircraft. So he shot down five enemy aircraft in one mission now two of his ace a today kills. He scored lebron shot because he got into position against the messerschmitt one. Nine pilot playing panicked broke to starboard and collided with his women. So that shot he taken down two enemy planes but listen to yeager zone description of what it was like to become an ace shooting down five planes in one i was leading the whole fighter group which means three squadrons and we only had we had two boxes of bombers ask court are fighter. Group did so what did stuck the other two squadrons one on each box of bombers took my squadron and ranged about eighty miles out in front of bomber stream and Spotted twenty two ammiano nine in formation climbing up out in front of the bombers out. Hey eighty to one hundred miles to make eight on passing. I stayed up sun where they couldn't. She spotted just little specks. I had excellent. Is i watch things without them. Seeing me at kept up son from the from the with my squadron of sixteen fifty one and finally when they leveled out headed over toward you just moved in behind him down son. And i got within two hundred yard behind in and i wouldn't let my politics you know. They kind of spread out. We still had a drop tank show on because we won't keep as much fuel as we could. And i shot down the first two without him dropping tangshan when of course the explosion when airplane then they all broke and at that point we punch your tanks off. The whole squadron broke up into you. Know an ele- much wing wing man and leader to support each other and we got a big ole. Harry dogfight not shut down.

My wing man was still with me and i picked up a couple more guys you know flying out. Try to orient yourself and then kind of fly round. Pick up the bombers again and stay with them.

Because Yeager was not the smartest guy in his class literally in his bio. It says his best grades in high school were Geometry and typing, and yet he was the first to break the sound barrier. Flew Mach one. Plus and then when the Navy had a guy go Mach two, as they were getting ready to celebrate that he anybody got in a plane and went Mach two and then some, just to sort of spoiled their party. 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. And they said we're not going to pay about a million bucks. Yeager, your next So Yeager gets into the thing two days before Jaeger was riding a horse and broke a couple of his ribs. He goes to a private doctor and says, Hey, listen, I think I hurt myself writing horse. They say? Yeah, You broke a couple of ribs. He says. Well, don't tell anybody. When he gets into that plane. Now imagine you're just being strapped in this tin can. No one's ever done this before you got a couple of ribs. It's hard to breathe.

instantly hit it off and we have a similar passion and the books that that were writing at this point in time in our lives and could wait to help have Tina on the show so tina welcome so much thank you for having this day it's so wonderful to be here with a like minded woman on to encourage her of women and those who struggle while thank you so much for being here would you tell my audience a little bit it yourself I have a long background that again how long do we have that I myself went through a great deal of self esteem mm struggles I even have an eating disorder for eight years that I struggled with and then as time went on three healing through very hard one feeling I eventually became a licensed mental health counselor and I saw so many women that came in my office over and over again struggling with self esteem struggling with low sense of self worth struggling with a sense of purpose or meaning in their life and feeling like they just had never been used by God I felt compelled to try to reach more women than I could see her son and that is why I decided to write this very difficult personal and clinical book Okay Sir Oh tell us the name of the book is called Beautiful Warrior Finding victory over the lies formed against you allowed that beautiful warrior what a beautiful picture You know I agree with you completely I think that we all battle with insecurity is some level we all feel like were not enough or we're not worthy because we are sinful and and we aren't enough but Jesus is enough but my concern is not just for women but also for younger curls who are growing up in today's culture because I feel like there are such a battle against them with the Internet now and social media if they have additional struggles that we never had to deal with and so I'd love to know some of the strategies that you employ in that helped you so that we could help women but we could also may be helped some young girls because I feel like they really need that as well so what are some of the strategies that you used to help you overcome your insecurities some of the things that helped me overcome again was just that step by step walking with the Lord in reclaiming my identity and hen instead of in the wrong things we can continually seek our fulfillment in our esteem and our acceptance for the people from our performance and our appearance in our social status and all kinds of things that we now see in social media presented S. must have had are not must have they are not necessary to having a sense of identity or sense of worth in our lives they don't even really give us any sense of worth meaning because they're like saltwater were going back again and again to drink approval and it's never fill that void which I hear every time we drink it absolutely you know I've heard it said that we have God shaped hole in our hearts and until we fill that hole with God we will look for all kinds of ways to fill that hole but nothing will satisfy until we fill our hearts with the Lord you talk about in your book you talk about feeling unlovable and you know rolling some insecurities as a child and so how did you overcome that as a child or is it was at a price zest that you worked through to overcome as an adult that was a process I had to work through as an adult as a child I just consistently held his now I can eight others I loved them I thought they were beautiful I felt like I was the popular standing outside at Tiffany's looking in wishing I could belong inside I never felt does though I could beat accepted among other people and that was where the evening SORTA SORTA in an at wanted so badly to fit in I thought maybe if I was enough people would just have me around maybe they would tolerate my presence just a little if I looked like I fit in even though I never really believed the people would accept me as a person for who I was or or value might personality or anything that was potentially of any value to them in others from the inside of who they are which is where a real values I thought maybe I could fake it on the outside enough to just along for a little while did you grow opt in a Christian home or was there as a disconnect between your faith and your thought life I did grow up in a Christian how I had absolutely wonderful parents it was the peer group that I was in I just didn't feel like it could connect with other students so you can have a really wonderful said appearance and still struggle emotionally with your son the value in self worth the thanked issue was a disconnect in May I believe God loved me because he had to I believe I love me because they had to and I felt like I was inherently unlovable and that was missing the entire point of scripture even though it was right in front of me yeah did you ever talk to your parents about this or is this just something that you kept to yourself that was definitely something I kept to myself and when we struggle in silence and we don't share with other people combat stronghold becomes all the more powerful every time we suffer from something in secret and has power over US absolutely I agree completely I know my brother died when I was twelve and I couldn't grieve my mom was an absolute mess my sister in so I like I had to be the strong one and as I did that in my feelings in I know it was a point in my life where the enemy issues that against retaliate in my life and I think that that is a huge problem as we face issues like feeling unlovable nobody wants to say I don't feel lovable because if one of my kids are when your kids came to you and said I don't I you know I feel uglier I feel this I feel you know we would courage them and fill them up but because we don't talk about those things we wear a mask and we pretend like everything's okay but it's not and I think you touched on that little bit in the book don't you if we don't share what's going on inside a best not only can we not get help we can't become the person who's helping others so so important for us to be authentic with one another so that we can reach out I struggled along with even revealing that I had an e gene disorder issue I didn't want anybody to think badly of my parents and were in fact really good parents I was just incredibly clever hiding my eating disorder and those with addictions or compulsive disorders are really adept at hiding their struggle it does not mean that their parents are appearance or the thing this something they could have done something better it's an absolutely not ashamed or slam on the right I'm thinking more of how can we get young people to voice what they're feeling so that they can get the help that they need your struggle not only matters to you but it matters somebody else sometimes we won't do something to save ourselves unless we realize that saving ourselves means saint somebody else there's someone else there that God has created for you to help if you don't get help if you don't get through this you won't become the vehicle you were intended to be in that person will continue to suffer so think about that other person those other people it's going to be more than one percent in fact if you remember the the beautiful maybe is my favorite may be Christmas it's a wonderful life angel saved George by jumping in the river and he said to George Bailey I jumped in the river to say you because I knew if you thought I was drowning you would save me that's so good I love that well tell me some of the other themes I know that talk about comparison in the book these are all things that the enemy tries to use to rob us of our joy in Christ but what are some of the other themes that you about in the book as well as when I think even as Americans in general not just women we have a tendency to compare ourselves and to compete with one another and think that we can only succeed by fitting other people down or or matching out or measuring up or getting past other people well when in fact collaboration is true power if we learn how to link arms with our sister warriors that's where we get stronger when we learned lift one another up encourage one another in receive encouragement and begins you share that strength with one another that's when we truly it can't powerful were able to do more together than we would do individually were missing at the enemy is dividing confering oh I agree completely but I love that because I have a mastermind group of Christian authors bloggers speakers and even podcasters and people that that sell things through social media because I want a wide variety of Christian women am I invite them every month come into my home and sit around my farm table and speak life into each other's lives to pray for one another to encourage one another are we teach one another because it's like saying a rising tide lifts all boats we truly are better together and something really good I heard a couple of years ago before I was going to she speaks I believe it was lowering gasol and she was talking about Michael Phelps in the Olympics because we had just come out of the Olympics and when he is swimming he doesn't look you know make it look select debris right but he's not looking at what the people in the lane to the left of him or doing or.
"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

You should bark warn people that if they encroach any further that they will be bitten and and that's the callaway I looked at it. I was I was I was heralded as a patriot and a hero and a as a madman psychopath at the same time probably a whole lot. Like the sons of liberty or George Washington. So You know. I don't know what I don't know what you're asking me but that's the best answer I had. was there anything in particular about that executive order like what was he banning again that it never that never came to fruition right but I knew what it was going to be. It was going to be anything. It was going to be any rifle that you could fight the government with I see. You can see how that could be a problem for the Second Amendment which was put there for that reason. Well, there's there's a lot of misconceptions about the Second Amendment One It says a well regulated. Militia well. Regulated means trained disciplined equipped. Doesn't mean a government regulation over it people people. Don't understand words in context you know when Jefferson wrote. The bill of rights and in the preamble? Ben Franklin said, well, you know I'm GONNA go in clean up the text. Ben. Franklin thought he's the smartest man they ever lived and while he was awesome person. He couldn't touch Thomas Jefferson. And just told him now it's fine just like it is every word. Had had a meeting and In regulated did had nothing to do with government incursion and militia, and it's funny because people want to say well, you know. They didn't understand technology and they didn't. They didn't know this and they didn't were have assault rifles and things like that, and I am equipped to inform these people that have never studied this. that. We had a civilians as. We had ordinance we had bombs we had cannons like all the stuff that we began that war with was stuff that we already owned. Here. And so. If I wheeled akin out in my front yard you know my neighbors would expect maybe you're. But that was that was there. Before. So it's not a technology thing. It's a freedom thing. I'm. So if we just like the a well regulated militia, what the militia was was the people not not the national. Guard and it's funny because it was that it's the National Guard. What's it's obviously we just bought the largest army in the world. That was that was ran by King. The last thing we wanted was another standing army that was led by the king. You know it would have been arcane. Towards Washington it's the last thing they wanted so. We just look at the first sentence. They've. Got It. All wrong. Well. Let's talk about the civic responsibility maybe as a precursor to a pack your bags moment why isn't there some sort of responsibility that people would do that is on civilians you know talk you can stop asking a question. You have a duty to protect yourself more than anybody else in the world, and that's not being selfish like a bodyguard. The most important person a bodyguard protects US himself because if he's not dead, he cannot predict his client. If you're dead, you cannot predict your family. So the second most important thing you protect your family after that your neighborhood near the street we live on, and after that you're sitting for.
"yeager" Discussed on Dangerous Ideas
"Hi. I'm Jordan. The host of dangerous ideas. Have you ever been watching the news and seen an interview that you learned absolutely nothing from I was recently watching interview on CNN I think it was between Ellen from the trump campaign who is trying to tells that president trump was basically the second coming of Jesus and someone that worked for the Democratic national campaign who is trying to tell us that trump was the next Hitler arguing with each other. Now instead of trying to find some common ground and understand each other's perspective, they were just trying to score quick points in a verbal tug of war, and if it wasn't bad enough that neither of them was being reasonable halfway through the interview, it turned into a shouting match. So I didn't even get to hear what they wanted to say anyways. And at the end of it I thought well shoot. I could do a better job than this and that's the inspiration for me starting this podcast I wanna go and interview people that have different perspectives from my own and learn from them. Now I was taken completely by surprise when Donald Trump won the election I live in the Washington DC metropolitan area and not a lot of people I. Know Voted for Donald Trump now obviously, those people are out there because he won the election and I'm willing to bet that the people who voted for Donald Trump probably have the same situation they get their news from other sources. Let's say someone's watching Fox News they probably don't get a moderate and reasonable. Portrayal of what the people who voted for Hillary are like they probably just see clips on Fox News of Nancy, Pelosi and Chuck Schumer and Hillary Clinton. and. So that's where dangerous ideas comes in to expose the listener to ideas and perspectives that they otherwise wouldn't here. And I'll give you an example of when there's no middle ground how the debate can be sort of skewed. So I was visiting Tehran a few years ago and I asked one woman what she thought about the requirement to where his job though and Iran, they wear what's called the Rue. Sorry. It's a little more like scarf that covers your hair. anyways I, I was asking her what did she think about this requirement and she said, she liked it. She said that her mother when she was growing up, there was a different government that banned them in. So her mother being religious wasn't able to attend public school because she wasn't allowed to wear her. Recover. So I said well rather than banning it or making it mandatory why not eat in the middle and make an optional and she looked at me she said I never thought about that and I think that point illustrates something that's happening here in the United States is that we're only seeing two extremes being portrayed on the mainstream media and you're not getting a balanced perspective..
