[Podcast] Cuando l'Armée de l'Air voló aviones del enemigo. Con Niebla de Guerra. Archivo Sonoro de Sandglass Patrol 16

miércoles, 7 de septiembre de 2022




Si la política hace extraños compañeros de cama, la guerra y la necesidad hace casi milagros, como que todas las armas del que otrora fuera tu enemigo, pasen a tu arsenal y las utilices como buenamente puedas.



Ése fue el caso de l'Armée de l'Air. Tras la Segunda Guerra Mundial internalizó todo lo que pudiera ser medianamente válido, como los Ki-43 en Indochina. En otros casos, terminó de producir los aviones que estaban a medias de montar en líneas de montaje francesas, como los Fw-190 renombrados NC-900. ¿Queréis saber más? Acompañadnos en este episodio.

El podcast se puede encontrar en Amazon Music, Apple Podcast, Google Podcast, Ivoox, Spotify

pd: Si la intro y la despedida os son familiares, que no os sorprenda. En un ejercicio de nostalgia podcasteril he hablado con Javier Lago para pedirle permiso y utlizar la introducción que hizo para el que, si no recuerdo mal, fue el primer podcast español sobre aviación: Remove Before Flight RBF podcast
