The History Guy Podcast: Aviation Accidents

Joshua Geiger, The History Guy's son, chats with THG about the creation of episodes of forgotten history and trivia in a behind-the-scenes look at The History Guy channel. Find the podcast on your favorite podcast app with RSS feed feeds.captivate.fm/thehistoryguy/
The inaugural episode of The History Guy podcast features two stories of forgotten history about aviation accidents. First, in 1966, an SR-71 "Blackbird" disintegrated at 78,000 feet. The pilot's first thought was "No one could live through what just happened. Therefore, I must be dead." Second is about a photo op in June 1966, involving an XB-70A No. 2, an F-4 Phantom, an F-5, a T-38 Talon, and an F-104 Starfighter, which went terribly wrong.

  • Blogs, podcasts are fine, but video record the presentation too. That is the draw of the History Guy. We enjoy the bow-tie. CBC Radio for example broadcasts its shows on audio, but many are also video taped. It's much more fun to watch and listen.

  • I was in the USAF reserves, in Okinawa for 2 week training. They had an SR71. They called it HABU. Got to see close, a take off. The locals knew when it was gonna come out of the hanger and fly by seeing a tanker take off. 30 minutes later here comes HABU. So very loud, blink and you lost it. What a thing to experience. Just wow.

  • The XB-70 was more of a parallel development. The photo op was not of various experimental aircraft that had GE engines, but of the whole military complement of military aircraft powered by GE engines. Wave-riding was not obsolete, rather, it was ahead of its time. Modern experimental hypersonic aircraft utilize its principles.

  • Great additional format from THG! Although I like your videos much more because it shows your enthusiasm much better through your gesture and expression, this is easy to listen while doing something like cooking or some work in the garage. But the audio volume is much too low, contrary to your regular video episodes. This shows even more if the listener is doing something else beside! Also think about lenght, this could have been splited into two nice episodes, I think 20-30 minutes would be optimal. Just a few thoughts, keep up the great work, greetings from austria!

  • Great episode! So, my buddy and I were hanging out at The Nut Tree Restaurant shopping complex in Vacaville, CA in the late '70's - early '80's. Having it's own airport at the intersection of two major highways near various military installations, The Nut Tree had a mini shopping museum of military aircraft flown nearby. I was looking at a coffee-table book about the SR71 when an attractive lady my age approached me and asked, "Do you want to meet one of the pilots?" Duh, yeah, really? She pointed him out across the shop. I was skeptical. He looked like a Hollywood casting pick for a veteran combat test pilot, but taller than I would have expected. Of course I did want to meet him but did not want to bother him (or make a fool of myself) but she said, "Come on, you'll win me a bet. He said you wouldn't want to meet him. I bet you would." I followed her over to him. We exchanged pleasantries and he politely answered my questions with (what I realized I knew was) publicly available information. I was wearing a light tactical vest and he also asked me a few polite questions about firearms and such. When I asked him about how fast the SR71 would go, he said, "That's classified, of course, but faster than a 30-06 (rifle bullet)." Interesting comparison but, again, I already knew that. Although I liked him, I was still skeptical. Was the bet perhaps really that they could trick someone for fun? It was time to end the conversation but I suddenly had one more question: "What's it like?" He got this dreamy, contemplative look in his eyes and said quietly, after a pause and no longer really looking at me, "You'd like it." I believed, a bit humbled, that at that moment, I was truly standing before the real deal. She deserved to win that bet.

  • I saw the first B70 at Edwards open house around 1967. My dad and I could walk right up to it and touch her. I remember the wheels being almost as tall as me, a kid of 10 years old. They held their open houses in the middle of Summer in those days. It was so hot, everyone stayed in the massive shadow of the plane. There wasn't that many people that Saturday. The air show was to be Sunday. My dad got some great pics of the B70, B52 with the X15 but the SR71 Blackbird was in it's hanger and all we could see was it's tail. I don't know what was flown on sunday but I doubt they flew the B70 or the SR71. I remember at later shows they flew the B52, SR71,F117 and the new B2. A coworker of mine told me one year she saw a man with his camera cross the rope of the blackbird and out of nowhere came MP's with their guns drawn, had him on the ground, then in a jeep drove him away which surprised me because one year sometime after they were closing the program, you could walk right up and touch her, I did and looked around for the MP's that never showed. I also saw her on one of her last flights when she flew over Lockheed to say goodbye. My sister worked there at the time and saw it too. She said a lot of workers were crying. Great memories.

It gives a clear AND unbiased view that’s well researched, well presented, accurate, and very entertaining. In their own words “It’s history that deserves to be remembered.” I’m a devoted follower.

  • In answer to some of the questions here: No we do not plan to replace our video format with podcasts, and plan to continue releasing videos on our regular schedule. The History Guy podcasts are posted every two weeks, and are available via all the popular podcast apps. We decided to post here on YT as well, as several people asked to have them posted here. We plan to post a podcast every other Tuesday in addition to our regular Monday/Wednesday/Friday video schedule. While most of the content from the podcasts is from videos that have been posted on THG, with some additional commentary, we will be posting some unique subjects on the podcast as well. Josh is my son and a lead writer on the channel who has written many of your favorite episodes of THG.

It's amazing how the human imagination brings up images to go along with quality "storytelling"... The late Paul Harvey was a master of this, and more recently, Mike Rowe. (remember "Dirty Jobs"?) I would like to add this podcast to that very exclusive list. May you have many years of success and good health, and most importantly, enjoy what you are doing. Finally: Thank You History Family, et al... your hard work deserves to be remembered!

  • Great job-. FYI - most that call ATC and ask for a ground speed check , the aircraft they are flying are mostly lesser instrument capable than jets. The reason, in a small aircraft is, it sometimes is critical to know your ground speed which is different than Indicated Airspeed. The concern is there enough fuel to make destination. ATC with Doppler radar can display ground speed and altitude with extreme accuracy.

  • When I was in the USAF I was stationed on a base that hosted two Blackbirds. My shop was located by a taxiway that the SRs would use. Just as we had finished cleanup at end of shift, a Blackbird taxied by. We all headed to our parking lot. My family was there to pick me up. I knew which runway the SR was using so drove to that area which had many vehicles of others there to watch the aircraft take off. Before an SR could take off a USAF staff car would speed down the runway ensuring nothing could endanger the craft. We saw the car speed away and I knew it wouldn't be long before we would witness the beginning of a Blackbird Taking off. With our car windows rolled up, the SR spun it engines up from idle then the afterburners lit. The flames of the afterburners were beautiful blue cones coming to twin point yards behind the aircraft, you could see rings within the flames each one smaller than the one before, getting smaller the farther away from each engine. It was a thrilling sight to behold. Just as the roar of the engines peaked indicating takeoff roll out was imminent there was a loud explosion and one of the afterburners flame ceased to be a beautiful blue cone and became an uncontolled flame even longer than the original afterburner looking all the world like the fiery breath of a mythical dragon. Almost immediately after this we heard both engines shut down. There would be no awe inspiring takeoff of an SR-71 Blackbird this day.

  • Minor point but the folded position of the wings of the xb-70 was meant for high speed flight, testing a theory called "compression lift," rather than low speed. They likely were in that position because it looked better for the photography. This configuration would mean the wing was working harder to create lift at low speed which means the wingtip vortices would be stronger.

He miss spoke during the speech and said SR instead of RS a military official then renamed the plane so not to contradict the president. I also was living along the flight path of the plane close to Cincinnati Ohio, and it had been on the news locally about the plane being retired. When the plane flew overhead that March day you could hear the sonic boom but we never saw the plane.

  • This seems like a gimmick to make more money. Both videos are still available and the video is entertaining and interesting.

    • Many fans have requested a podcast version, as they listen to the channel while working or driving. These include a Q&A between Josh and The History Guy, and will occasionally contain podcast-exclusive episodes. But thank you for being a fan of The History Guy! --Carolyn, business manager for The History Guy, LLC

  • I liked the stories; I hope you continue to upload the podcasts to MNthe. (Although there was a lot of overlap with last year's "Death of a Valkyrie" video.) If feasible, I suggest making the podcast stories more conversational. Yes that leads to lower informational density, but gives a very different feel that helps the autio-only format.
