AIR DATE: April 26, 2013

Fighter pilots still seem to have one of the most exciting jobs in the military. That reputation was enhanced with the 1985 movie "Topgun." A man who both flew fighters and helped Hollywood with the movie will be speaking at, of all places, the Atomic Liquors Lounge, this Saturday and he joins us ahead of the event.

 
GUESTS
 
Dave Baranek, former fighter pilot and author of "Topgun Days"
Allan Palmer, former fighter pilot and Executive Director of the Atomic Testing Museum
