Welcome back, everyone! This week we have a really fun episode for you all. U.S. Air Force Capt. Haden Fullam joins the podcast. Gator is your 2021-2022 A-10 Thunderbolt II demonstration team pilot so if you have seen the A-10 demo at airshows across the country, it has been Gator doing the yanking and banking. We talk about all kinds of amazing stuff. He geeks us out on the A-10 and its incredible firepower. We of course talk about the gun a bunch! He fills us in on what it’s like for a combat-ready aviator to switch gears and fly airshows and to step into that world, what his airshow routine is like, and how the A-10 flies. Gator also tells us where he got the callsign Gator! We absolutely hope he comes back on the podcast because we could talk to him all day long!
